It is totally inconceivable that a person who has access to the Internet and knows how to use it has not noticed that cats have totally taken over it and rule it with supremacy! But if you think that this is a modern phenomenon – you are dearly mistaken: not only that cats are trending for the past 10 years on the Internet but they are trending for millennia. If you do not believe us, please take a look at the drawings of cats in the Egyptian pyramids.
But let us return to the present.
YouTube is brimming with videos of cute kittens and every video is becoming an almost instant sensation. There are a lot of channels dedicated only to striped purring creatures, memes, gifs, demotivators, avatars with mustaches, tails and cat muzzles that have eclipsed the space of social networks, there are oceans of groups of feline lovers, which in fact are the most popular forms of online networking of pet enthusiasts.
People who have not been dragged into the pool of kitty veneration, are dealing with a very logical question: “What aroused such interest in these soft-furred mousers? Why not dogs? Why not birds? Or fish? Why cats? “.
Both the very culprits, doing the campaigns for promoting cats online, and the viewers and loyal cat fans even though they do their best to unravel the mystery of cat interest, they cannot provide a single definite answer, apart from:
“But they are soo cuuuuute – don’t you just want to squeeeeeze theeem?”, “Cat is my spirit animal, and I think that half the world agrees with me”, “Cats …hmm … I just love them!”, “Cause they are so funny and adorable.”

Jack the cat lives indoors with mom and dad. His mom used to tell him and all the litter during suckling time, when all of them gathered for a little family time over dinner, that they come from a long line of fine-bread and pampered domestic cats who always had a pillow to sleep on inside the house. With generations, Jack’s family was not forced to fend for themselves form the next meal. And still. All cats are hunters, and regardless how well-kept, how soft the paws are that silently walk on the carpeted floors, they will never forget the deeply ingrained hunter instinct.
Check it out as Jack has a great time playing catch and rolling around with his catnip mouse toy. He has a winning combination there: his favorite toy and cat’s favorite herb! Jack has great paw-eye coordination!
Catnip is a perennial herbaceous plant. Despite its spreading throughout Europe, North America and other countries, the real home of the catnip is North Africa. This plant contains up to 3% of essential oils which attract cats with their strong specific odor (the main component is nepetalactone). This feature also formed the basis of its name. Now you see why Jack is so happy!
