This may be the most brilliant running meme that has hit the Internet.
A new Twitter page called Runners + Cats (@RunnersandCats) has become an internet sensation with almost 3,000 followers since its first tweet on May 30. The account shares photos of runners with photoshopped cats in the background. Yes, that’s right, cats. It’s a ridiculous concept, but one that has gained much popularity within running’s social media networks. Other runners have even contributed to the feed with photoshopped cats and runners of their own.
It’s an enigma as to why the combination of runners and cats is so delightfully entertaining, but it just is. As a preview, check out 15 of our favorite photo-bombing kitties found on @RunnersandCats. You’re welcome.
