The world is not always a pretty place and sometimes looking at a funny picture or video of a cat can help brighten our day. It’s really not surprising cats are so popular on the internet when you really sit down to think about it.

HOW DID CATS MAKE IT TO THE INTERNET

Now that most people have a cell phone, it makes it easier than ever to take photos and videos of your cat and upload them to the internet.

Most people upload many more photos or videos than just one a week. If these people all upload one a day, then over 3 million files accumulate in one month. If this continued for a year, then just these 100,000 people will provide you with over 36 million new images or videos of cute and funny cats for your viewing pleasure. The best answer to the question how many cats are on the internet may best be answered by two simple words – a lot!
