If cats didn't exist, neither would the Internet.
Whether you're a dog person or a cat person, you probably agree with most of what Twitter is saying in response to the viral hashtag #IfCatsDidntExist. (But if you're a dog person, you're probably not even reading this, so...)
Cats have long claimed the crown for owning the Internet, though chickens are impressively vying to alter those stats.
Here's what Twitter has to say about the hypothetical scenario of a cat-less world. (Yes, we're cringing just thinking about it.)
Many agreed that cats provide endless entertainment value and cute factor to the Internet:

There were those who just couldn't fathom the idea:
I don't even want to entertain this thought.

This is the first tag that has ever offended me #IfCatsDidntExist

Some took to calling out cats for their, um, annoying habits:
#IfCatsDidntExist I would be sitting on a fur-free recliner, in full knowledge of where all my hairties are.
And I would want to get a cat.

And let's face it, we've all been this person:

Wait. We're still that person.
Most of us can agree, cats make the world a better place--for lots of reasons.
