Did you know that there’s a very special kitty holiday coming up? June 24th is Cat World Domination Day! Are our feline buddies plotting to take over the world? A Cherry Hill, NJ vet discusses Fluffy’s plans for us in this article.
Cats In Power
Kitties have actually managed to get into some very prestigious positions. Four British furballs—Larry, Humphrey, Freya, and Sybil—have been giving the official title of Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office. Stubbs, a cute orange cat with no tail, served as mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska for twenty years. Of course, there are also millions of furballs who are the furry bosses of their own households.
Fluffy may look innocent, but she’s actually perfectly suited for bossing us around. It often only takes one look at a kitty’s adorable furry face to melt our hearts. Those plaintive meows can really pull our heartstrings! As it turns out, being cute and baby-sized gives cats a tremendous advantage. Many kitties only have to purr and meow, and we will happily wait on them hand and paw. The numbers may also be on Fluffy’s side here. There are about 100 million pet cats in America, and they are only getting more popular! Kitties have even convinced us to open cat cafes, which are basically cat-worshipping centers with good coffee.
Prior Attempts At World Domination
Cats have been trying to take over the world for a very long time. Fluffy hasn’t been able to assume complete control yet, but she did manage to convince the ancient Egyptians that she was a deity. Kitties also attempted to take over Australia in the late 1800’s. The Australian government released hundreds—if not thousands—of kitties into the wild, hoping they would control the rapidly-expanding population of wild rabbits. Fluffy basically refused to do her job, and hunted other animals instead, doing further damage to fragile wildlife populations.
If there’s one area where kitties are making huge strides toward world domination, it’s on the web. The internet is about 80% cat photos and videos! Fluffy also likes to sit—and sometimes sleep—on our computers and keyboards. Perhaps cats are trying to take over the net by osmosis?
