Cats are simply a cut above the rest, and they know it. They look down upon us, their loyal servants, and rightfully so. They are far superior and definitely 1000x more majestic than we can ever hope to be.
When it comes to being in their presence, we are awe-struck, we turn into babbling buffoons. It is difficult to be in the presence of greatness without making a fool of yourself. You want to please the cat(s), you want them to like you. It simply cannot be helped.
At least by just looking at images of these superior beings, we can make babbling buffoons out of ourselves with no one around to judge.
