White cat meowing meme
What is the meaning of the white cat meowing meme? Just sayin'
The "White Cat Meowing" meme, also known as "The Cat Meowing For Its Mommy" meme, started on April 30, 2017, as a tribute to the white cat meme, though it differs in that it involves a mother's love for her child (in this case, a cat) rather than a father's love for his child (in this case, a child). While the former was originated by white_cat, which in turn is a re-upload of the now-famous white_cat image, the latter originated on Reddit user 'the_chill' where it was uploaded as a screenshot, a few months before the white cat meme was uploaded to 4chan's /co/. This version of the cat meowing meme became widely popular in May 2017. It was then spread to various forms of social media in June and July, such as Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, and even Tumblr.
The white cat meowing meme began on April 30, 2017, on 4chan's /co/ board, as a tribute to the now-famous white cat meme. The 4chan thread was originally posted by the anonymous user, or "4chancanary", on April 30, 2017, and quickly became popular, spawning a series of similar posts on other /co/ threads. The image was quickly uploaded on other image-hosting websites such as imgur.com, before being uploaded to Reddit. Reddit user 'the_chill', who posts anonymously, posted the screenshot of the cat meowing meme to Reddit's /r/aww subreddit, which then spread to various other subreddits such as /r/bestof, /r/funny, /r/humor, /r/iAMA, /r/pics, /r/science, and /r/todayilearned. According to a post in /r/TheoryOfReddit, the post received more than 600 upvotes and 100 downvotes in under an hour. Within the first two weeks after posting, the post received more than 100,000 page views on 4chan's /co/ board and over 2 million page views on Reddit's /r/aww.
The /r/aww subreddit also gave a thread on the white cat meme a chance to be widely spread, as well as to become a part of /r/aww/favorites. A post on the /r/aww/favorites thread was made by the Reddit user, /u/kotoura, who wrote, "For me, this one will always be my favorite. No cat memes to compare to." Kotoura added to the post, "This one has so much emotion and feeling that I can't believe there's not a word for it." Another comment on the /r/aww/favorites thread also gave a shoutout to the white cat meme: "The cat crying because it misses its mother. This is just a really amazing image." The post received more than 700 upvotes and over 400 comments in under two weeks, but the number of upvotes was reduced to over 350 by August 2017.
The white cat meowing meme was then spread to various other websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Google+, which became a form of social media. On August 4, 2017, /r/aww's user, /u/wes_the_cat, shared a tweet about the white cat meme: "The best cat meme of all time, it's too bad it's not on /r/aww. But the comments on /r/aww/favorites are just as good." He also added to the tweet: "I'm surprised this isn't in the new book of the best cat memes, as it's been around a lot longer than the one in the book. It's one of those memes you can't expln." He was then criticized by a few people who wrote to him that the white cat meowing meme originated from a cat in a photograph, not a meme that began as a cat meowing meme. One commenter then wrote to Wes the Cat, "That cat you are so excited about, it's not really a cat meme, it's a picture of a cat." Wes the Cat replied, "It's a cat, it's not a picture of a cat. It's a picture of a cat meowing, and it's a picture of a cat in a picture of a cat meowing. It's a meme." He added that he doesn't know how it came to be named the "cat meowing" meme, but that he found the name hilarious. The tweet received more than 3,500 retweets and more than 3,100 favorites in under a week, but less than 2,700 retweets and fewer than 2,500 favorites in the following two weeks.
In early May 2017, Reddit user, /u/CatsForHire uploaded a photo of a meowing white cat, which he found on Tumblr, on his own subreddit, /r/cats, saying "That's the only way I can expln this picture, but I thought it was funny". He then created a post on the subreddit, /r/cats, that received more than 100 upvotes in under an hour. The post was then removed by the subreddit's moderators as they were not "happy" about the image being uploaded to the subreddit, but the post was quickly posted by another Reddit user, /u/Dalmatians_for_Hire, who uploaded the post agn. He later also uploaded the photo to /r/dogs and /r/animals, and /r/cats was the most active subreddit to react to the post, making the /r/cats post the most popular post on the subreddit. The post received more than 6,200 upvotes and 1,500 downvotes in two hours, but over 16,000 upvotes and 2,000 downvotes in the following three days. Another Reddit user, /u/Kittypaws4
