Ceiling Cat: Not Just A Meme Anymore!

This may just be one for the record books.

In true fulfillment of online prophecy, an Internet meme has officially come into the real world.

The meme in question is none other than the infamous "Ceiling Cat."  For those not privy, Ceiling Cat is a popular Internet image of a cat poking its head through a ceiling:



Ceiling Cat is a photoshop meme based on a photograph of a cat peeking through a hole in the ceiling of a room. Its online popularity eventually led to several derivative characters, including his nemesis Basement Cat and Basement Horse.


While the original photographer of the image is still unknown, several people have claimed to know its origin. Encyclopedia Dramatica states that the cat belongs to Wikipedia user Samguana, but this claim has not been confirmed. In May 2012, Something Awful poster Quarex claimed that they were friends with the cat's owner, posting a similar photo of the cat from a different angle. The user also said the cat in the photo passed away in 2010

As you can see, there's no shortage of depth when it comes to this meme's backstory.

Well, imagine Emma Campbell's excitement when she looked up at an Animal Welfare League branch in Australia and saw a certain somebody making a sneaky little entrance:

So always remember to look up in your room before doing anything NSFW!
