Ever see an animal that is so ugly it’s cute? There’s a meme that evokes a similar sensation: Cats Wearing Tights.
Its appeal is the classic combo of pissed off kitty enduring humans' foolishness, and comes off like Internet catnip.
Although it may seem like a new stretch of the imagination, the meme dates back to 2013, according to Know Your Meme. The original cat wearing tights was named Gucci.
Swedish balloon artist and blogger Katja Wulff made Gucci the subject of her Tumblr, Meowfit of the Day, where she posted pictures of her 16-year-old Siamese dressed in stuffed tights or leggings once a day. According to an interview in Metro, Wulff describes Gucci being "like a blob that we can place everywhere we want, and she just stays put and purrs."
Wulff and boyfriend, Dan, came up with the idea when they were thinking up a new prank to play on their cat.
