Cats among pets have been the reigning souls in social media and they have been the best receivers of infinite love from all and sundry.

Here’s decoding the top reasons behind the popularity of these soft- pawed feline friends:

Cats can do a lot with deadpan expressions

Our feline friends are known for being inexpressive and it is one of the biggest scoring points ever for these furry balls. They are stoic and are never ready for the camera as they are lost in their own lazy, moody swirls of life; licking their whiskers, pretending to sleep or being dreamy. They go around doing crazy things, abhor the lens and most of the times are caught unawares which exemplifies their antics to the core! ‘Don’t care’ attitude of cats has been one of the main factors for the videos of cats becoming sensational!

Cats are celebrities in their own right

The web has become the red carpet for the feline celebrities! Are you familiar with the names like ‘Venus’, ‘Grumpy Cat’ ‘Maru’ ‘Colonel Meow’ and the like? Well, these are some of the names of our feline friends who have scaled the popularity chart. Venus is famous for her two-hued face, ‘Grumpy Cat’ is because of her frowning face and the film, ‘Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever’ fame while ‘Maru’ is bang on dwelling in the hearts of the feline lovers since July, 2008 when the first video of Maru was published online. This Scottish fold cat is known for her perfect, eye-grabbing, oh-so-cute poses while trying a shot at yoga, staunch expressions and more. This is not all, the list of feline celebs is increasing with each passing day. From making appearances on television shows, videos published online to penning down of books, the feline followers are just fanning the feline desires of the pet lovers - taking the whole idea of cat-ish excitement to the next level.
