With more than 2 million videos on YouTube, cats have become one of the most searched topics online.

It was in 2005 that YouTube co-founder Steve Chen posted a video of his cat called ‘Pyjamas’ playing with a rope, making him the first to upload a cat video.

But it wasn’t until the next year that a cat video went viral. 'Puppy vs Cat' has racked up more than 16 million views on YouTube.

Nowadays almost half of all original YouTube videos feature people’s pets, and around 26 billion views are of cats, making them the most popular category!
