I realize that I am rather late on the wagon to post about this exciting and powerful Internet phenomenon that has been sweeping the world over the past month, but I believe it is important to note it’s cultural and political impact on the way our society is being shaped in this time and through our generation…
JK you guys, cats with bread on their heads is just, like, really, really funny and cute, you know?
If you don’t know what cat breading is by now, let me break it down for you. A human takes a slice of bread, takes out a small hole in the center of said slice, and then proceeds to stick a feline companion’s head through that hole, all before taking photos and uploading them to cat breading forums on the Internet. It’s as simple as that.
Stephen Colbert was one of the first to introduce Cat Breading to the mainstream online humor world when he introduced the trend on his talk show in the beginning of February. Since received the “Colbert Bump” of approval, cat breading has spread like wildfire online, with forums, blogs, discussions and Instagram accounts all dedicated to the subtle art of breading your cat.
The Facebook group, “Putting bread on your cat, so people think you have a walking sandwich,” currently possesses 27,000 members who upload and share pictures of cats with slices of bread on their heads. GENIUS. Absolute genius. Of course if you put your pets head in a piece of bread others will think there is an actual sandwich walking around your apartment! Of course!
Cat Breading has also received attention from sites like the UK Daily Mail and Gawker, so you KNOW it’s something you have to like.
The following photos are a few examples of Cat Breading, and just how darn cute this trend has become.
