Cat Photos Are the Best!

What would the internet be without funny cat photos? It certainly wouldn’t be as much fun. Cats remind us to relax and enjoy life. They also help to lighten the load of information we receive. These days there is so much horrible news, high tension controversy, drama, and hate being filtered through social media. I, for one, would much rather see a line-up of cute and funny kitties when I look at my social media. Positivity is priceless.

Believe it or not, the love of funny cat photos goes back over 100 years. I’m not sure whether or not he was the first ever person to photograph a cat, but Harry Pointer of England was one of the first photographers to specialize in cat photos. He was just a common man, a son of an agricultural worker, that would grow up to be a cultural phenomenon. Pointer’s cartes-de-visite featuring photos of posed cats charmed the hearts of the masses in Victorian England. He even designed a few for Queen Victoria’s Jubilee! She was an avid cat lover too.
