i can haz cat

It irritates me that the lik-the-bred meme is devolving into i can haz cheezburger cat speak. The original is phonetically spelled with obvious influence (connecting back to the origin story) of Middle/Old English, like Chaucer. A version I just found uses “cuz da fire natin” and “mai gurlfrend” and it just makes the hobbyist linguist in me really miffed.

the year is 2015 and I just introduced my husband to lolcats and long cat and a bunch of other old ass memes he has never heard of and he was laughing hysterically at Photoshops of long cat. 2015 people. He had never heard of ceiling cat, grumpy cat or even I can haz cheezburger.


Can I Haz Tomorrow?

My cat had a vision the other day
Of a future, not long away
She stood on the moon
Gazed into the gloom
Where once a planet spun
Fresh air, naps and scratches, oh what fun
Food abounds for every taste
Till wolves overcame and all was a waste
Wars were fought over piles of trash
And our once cozy home now a ball of ash


what if cats were the sentient ones, and we were the animalistic ones? what if cats looked at human videos on youtube, cat bloggers took photos of and blogged about their humans, and cats had “i can haz cat food?” memes instead of the cheezeburger memes,? 

instead of anime cat girls, they’d have human girls (cats with human ears and no tails, maybe even human hands too)

certain female cats would grow up to be “human ladies”, having multiple humans in their home.
