The internet loves cute animals, it seems like if you have a pet you have a lot of chances to make it at least slightly internet famous by creating a social media page for it, preferably Instagram. And if you post consistently enough and take cute photos of your pet they will probably get a decent following.
Now if your pet is a cat – your chances of fame grow exponentially because it seems like cats are the internet’s favourite animals. And then if your cat has unique features – you’re freaking golden!
Think about it – Grumpy Cat, Lil Bub and other cats became viral sensations because they were different, and unique. The internet didn’t see their features as a bad trait, in fact their genetic mutations were celebrated and adored. It seems like we as people are starting to value difference and uniqueness above all.
