    5 world-famous internet cats

    For International Cat Day (8 August), we've rounded up some of the famous cats that purrfectly sum up the feline nature.

    Love ’em or hate ’em, it’s undeniable that cats rule the internet. Our furry feline friends often go viral with their hilarious escapades. For International Cat Day, we have rounded up five internet-famous cats that purrfectly sum up their pawsitively quirky nature.

    1. Simon’s Cat

    This hilarious YouTube animation series really captures the nature and characteristics of our whiskered companions. Created by Simon Tolfield in 2008, the cartoon is still going strong and has even been made into a book.

    2. Grumpy Cat

    Tardar Sauce – more commonly known as Grumpy Cat – took the internet by storm, with her consistently unimpressed expression caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism. From memes and YouTube videos to T-shirts, mugs and books, she is a recognisable character worldwide. Unfortunately, Grumpy Cat is no longer with us, but her legacy lives on through the internet.

    3. Maru

    With 638,000 subscribers on YouTube, it’s undeniable that Maru is an internet sensation. A Scottish fold cat breed, Maru has been gracing the internet with his presence since 2016 when he first went viral. Maru’s antics often involve experiments and boxes – he clearly relates to the phrase ‘if it fits, I sits’.


    4. Henri Le Chat Noir

    These existential musings of a tuxedo cat are written and directed by William Braden. Henri projects his sense of ennui and angst at the world around him, making him both comedic and slightly dark at the same time.


    5. Lil Bub

    Lil Bub was rescued by her owners and is well known for her strange appearance. She was adopted by owner Mike Bridavsky and needs special treatment. She first became famous on Tumblr and then went viral on Reddit. She starred in a documentary called Lil BUB and friendz by Vice Japan, which premiered in 2013 at the Tribeca Film Festival and won in the Online Festival Best Feature Film Category.
