Cats broke the internet
One Ordinary Animal more than any other reigns supreme on the World Wide Web: cats. Small cats, big cats, grumpy cats, LOLcats.
There are over two million cat videos on YouTube being viewed a staggering 26 billion times. You can’t open a browser or login to social media without being confronted by a cute kitten in memes, videos, blog posts and gifs form, you name the format and you’ll find a cat owning it. Cats own the internet.
But, why have cats become the animal a generation of internet users are obsessed with and why not any other Ordinary Animal we share our lives with, like dogs?
Join us for a feline-themed late opening with cat-inspired audio cinema, discussions investigating how cats became so influential and special cat video screenings.
Part of The Museum of Ordinary Animals events programme.
