cat pictures to print and color

The first recorded use of the term “lolcat” was used on 4chan, an anonymous imageboard. The word “Lolcat” was in use as early as June 2006, and the domain name lolcats. com was registered on June 14, 2006. Their popularity was spread through usage on forums such as Something Awful. The News Journal states that “some trace the lolcats back to the site 4chan, which features bizarre cat pictures on Saturdays, or ‘Caturdays’. ” Ikenburg adds that the images have been “slinking around the Internet for years under various labels, but they did not become a sensation until early 2007 with the advent of I Can Has Cheezburger?” The first image on “I CAN HAZ CHEEZBURGER?” was posted on January 11, 2007, and was allegedly from the Something Awful website. ” Lev Grossman of Time wrote that the oldest known example “probably dates to 2006”, but later corrected himself in a blog post where he recanted his statement based on the anecdotal evidence readers had sent him, placing the origin of “Caturday” and many of the images now known by a few as “lolcats” in early 2005. The domain name “caturday. com” was registered on April 30, 2005.
