Pets-Internet Cat Stars
This publicity photo provided by I Can Has Cheezburger shows an image of a cat by Kristine Oakhurst using LOLcat speak, "I said i needs a drink....not a metal bowl wif water." Ben Huh, was key in launching the cat meme when he and a group of investors bought the I Can Has Cheezburger site in September 2007. The site, now an empire of sites for Huh, allows users to generate captions on cat photos using LOLcat speak, a language with spelling and syntax all its own.
