Have cats taken over the world, but we just don’t know it yet?

Cats have it easy, don’t they?  They get fed.  They get petted.  They get their photos plastered all over the internets for everyone to lol at.  Should we finally own up to the fact that cats are in charge of it all?  They certainly seem to rule the internet.
