The Chris Hansen Cat meme started yesterday when a GIF (picture below) was posted on Reddit showing the exact moment a cute Scottish Fold cat realized who was holding the feather toy. That same day, another picture was also popular on Reddit -- a picture that showed the cat above chillin' at a kitchen counter. A Redditor captioned the photo with a reference to the cat in the GIF from earlier that day, and a new meme was born. One day later, there are almost 200 captioned photos and photoshops of the cat, and we've placed some of our favorites in the slideshow below. All pictures courtesy of Quickmeme unless otherwise noted.

Nobody tell this cat about the red dot. It would just be too much for the poor kitty to handle in one day.
