On the Internet, no one knows you’re a cat. Or has to know that all you can see are cats. Especially when one cool cat in the form of Aberdeen-based web developer Drew Llewellyn has developed Facecats, a nifty Chrome extension that replaces every picture you see in Facebook with an inexhaustible supply of cat pictures. That applies to your profile pictures (you’re a cat), profile pictures of your friends (they’re cats), the photos your friends upload (yup, more cats) and the image thumbnails of links (CATS). Hell meow, even the sponsored ads have cat pictures in them. No better way to remind ourselves who the real rulers of the world are.
