Ancient Memes: Medieval Paintings of Cats

One of the internet’s favorite types of memes is cat memes.

What you might not know is that cat memes were popular before the internet. In fact, they were popular all the way back in Medieval times.

Today, I want to share with you my collection of Medieval cat memes.

The question is: did these people not know how to draw cats, or did cats just look completely different in the Middle Ages?

This collection is dedicated to the cat that I saw get hit by a truck today. It clearly already had health problems, meaning it was probably old. But still, it was a sad sight. We love our cats. Rest in peace, cat.
