The internet is the official gallery showcasing all the best snaps of silly cats, purrfect felines, and wholesome cattos. But every cat pic, no matter how raw and spontaneous it may be, deserves an artistic treatment.

And this is precisely what the Indonesian illustrator Amelia Rizky is doing. The artist takes internet-approved pics like a catto with a cabbage hat or a catto on two legs carrying a sardine and turns them into digital watercolors. But unlike Monet’s watercolors, these “watercatlors” have 100% more purrfection and an unlimited amount of goofiness. I need not guess that her 205K Instagram followers would agree.

For those who just can’t get enough of Amelia’s cool drawings, part 1 is waiting one click away. And, as the artist put it: "Purr more, hiss less.”

Why humans are so obsessed with cats is the question as mysterious as it sounds. 'Cause every now and then, when a new trend goes viral, it usually features a cool catto pic. But it’s not a new phenomenon.

In fact, the rise of cat influence can be traced back to 2005, when the first cat video was posted on Youtube. A 30-second clip showed a cat named Pajamas dancing to the tunes of Nick Drake.

A year later, on May 9, the first viral cat video was born. Titled “Puppy Vs. Cat,” the footage showed a brave cat holding her ground in the face of curious little puppies. It was viewed more than 16 million times.

And who could forget the iconic internet meme known as “Nyan Cat,” which ranked among the top 5 most-watched Youtube videos ever? It has gathered a head-spinning 179,175,890 views in total, to be precise.

But probably one of the most common answers to just why everyone is so obsessed with felines comes down to the nature of this furry animal.

Joshua Green, vice president of digital strategy at Arnold Worldwide, told CNN that "The centrality of cats to the digital world is because they have a cultural connection to the people who live there. The fact is, cats are just better nerd pets."

Cats are inquisitive and curious, jumpy, and lovable, but you never truly know what to expect from them. “Cats, meanwhile, knock stuff off other stuff and LOL about it afterward,” states this article. And this precise LOL is what the internet just can’t get enough of.

I can't smile at this one because I am saddened that anyone would let their cat become morbidly obese like this poor cat. You might be entertained by the way it does things but your cat is suffering. I agree with Maria R, this is animal abuse.
