New Internet Craze: Cat Beards vs. Dog Beards

They’re purrrrfect memes that have become a woof-ing viral sensation!

The Internet is a wacky place where cats rule and one bad (or ‘ridiculously photogenic’) photo of a person could instantly turn them into an Internet meme star. Well, the latest collaboration between feline and human to go viral is called ‘cat bearding’! Unlike ‘Cats That Look Like Male Models’, cat beards are more of a tickle.

Basically, you’ll need a cat (the furrier the better), then get the little ball of fur to snuggle up to your chin and voila, cat beard! You can also place your feline horizontally at the risk of some hardcore cat-bearders deeming it as cheating.

Interestingly enough, the first cat beard actually appeared in July 2011 on Tumblr, but it took a while before the craze began in 2012. With cat beards spreading like wildfire, it seems that dog lovers are coming up with ‘dog beards’ as an alternative to the trend! Would you give it a go?
