8 Cats Acting Out Common Emoticons


Cats as EmoticonsI have been on the internet since the year it came out and most of us had no idea what we were doing.

Since growing up with the internet, I am well versed in certain things like chat rooms, message boards and of course with those comes the beloved ’emoticons’. Icons that show what emotion we’re feeling — from happy to sad to flat out angry. These emoticons have been around since the dawn of the Internet (maybe before? I have no idea) and they have stayed relatively the same through out.

There are two things that make the internet (and thus the world) go round and that is emoticons and kittens. Now, the internet may explode when you combine the two, but I am willing to take that risk… because why not?
