Everything Canadians have been Googling about cats

If you call yourself a ‘cat person’ you should probably know that today is International Cat Day.

While not everyone is a cat-lover, those who are fond of their furry feline friends are pretty intense about their love for them – and about cat-filled photos and videos.

Let’s face it: Cats sort of rule the internet.

While searches for dogs currently outpace those of cats, cat searches are currently on the rise, according to Google Canada. Cats indeed have a special place in the spotlight themselves – from Grumpy Cat, to whacky cat videos and cat questions.
