Cat breading is the practice of cutting a hole in a slice of bread and placing it around a cat’s head. When done correctly, the cat ends up looking like a little lion with a “mane” of bread. The humor of this look is heightened by the fact that cats generally dislike looking foolish. Just as funny is the rare cat who actually enjoys sporting his/her bread as a fashion accessory.
Cat breading is an “Internet meme” that has been gathering momentum for quite some time. At the beginning of February 2012, the meme gathered critical mass and caught the attention of mainstream media. On January 31, 2012, Gawker.com published a widely-read story on cat breading. This was quickly followed by segments on The Colbert Report and Jimmy Kimmel Live. That’s all it takes to become an Internet meme!
