Best Thing I’ve Seen All Day: Cat Bearding

Meme THIS, hipsters.

I love a good meme as much as the next internet addict web savvy individual, though it’s not often that one makes me want to go adopt a cat right this second so I can be part of the phenomenon. (Side note, why isn’t meme-nomenon a word yet? Probably because it’s hard to read and not think of these guys.)

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Cat Beard aka Cat Bearding. The simple act of getting nose to nose with a furry feline results in an amazing optical illusion turning cats into the cutest facial hair around. Bonus points for those who get the crazy eyes in their photos for extra LOLs.

Everyone knows the furry underbelly of a cat is the softest, most pet-able part, but who knew it also served as an excellent disguise? Well, I suppose it only works as a disguise in photos – I’ve yet to meet a cat that would be chill enough to spend more than about four seconds held in front of its owner’s face.

If you happen to have an amicable cat, do yourself and your feline friend a favor and snap a cat beard photo to preserve this meme in your own collection forever.
