*meows in sepia*
Always. All I can do is ask a cat to meow in Valencia filter.
Unfortunately not true
Everyone should click this link! It doesn't just debunk this photo, it shows a bunch of even older cat photos that are pretty cute. Some 19th century dude got a cat to look like it was riding a bicycle.
Thank you u/philnicau
That cat must’ve stood there a *long* time
Don’t know how they did it, old cameras from that time took 30-a couple minutes to capture photos.
What a glorious beast. Next shot was him jumping on the camera.
Oh without doubt, haha
A handsome beast indeed.
Yeah, at least you handsome complicated German!
So beautiful. I'm sure this cat's person could not have imagined that people all over the world would be appreciating this cat centuries later.
Yeah that cat is regal AF and they know.
Regal auto focus? Nah they would have only had manual focus back then
But could these photographers catch my cat on the counter, with her head stuck in a bag, jumping off said counter when she felt me touch her knowing she wasn’t supposed to be on said counter and smacking into the floor and spilling all of the food out of the bag on the way down?
Sir Fluffy the cat of the people.
Looks like a sherbet to me!
He's probably thinking:
***"In the future that device will be used to worship my kind globally on a massive scale, so I will accept it."***
This brings me back to the early 1800s.
Ancient Egypt would like a word with you.
What’s your point? They didn’t have photography in ancient Egypt, so there where certainly no cat photos.
My family photos, even the black and white ones from ages ag are filled with cats. I just be at least a 6th generation cat owner!

Now *that* is a good boy
I’ve always believed cats are time travelers
I hope cats will always be with us humans. We will take pictures and videos of them forever and ever.
Who wouldn’t want to have a picture of that beautiful pussy?!
his/her name is Baby
People from Ancient Egypt 'o'
Was your cat alive in the 1800s?
It's probably dead. That was a real thing.
Ha. Cats before dogs!
Now that is a quality katto
Yet still better than some android cameras
How much is the fare for the time machine? Lol. Beautiful kitty.
Still better than security cameras
The original cat meme generator
*Meanwhile security cams*
How did they get the cat to sit still long enough? Don’t you have to freeze for like two minutes or something with those old ones?
Shit, I can't get my cats to sit still for a 1/25 sec photo, let alone however many seconds to minutes this would have been exposed for
Beautiful and adorable ❤️
This feels like a regular cat photo with a filter. Cats will never change. They will always be adorable and superior
Its a miracle she stayed still long enough
what a mighty lookin cat
If you're in the San Antonio area, I'm trying to branch into pet photography
If I was I’d totally take you up on that but I’m in Atlanta (and sometimes Vermont) neither of which are anywhere near you, haha
Didn't it take like 10 mins of standing still to take a photo then? How did they get this cat to pose for so long...
God even the cats look wiser in the 1880s 😂
And it’s so cute ☺️
Hmmm...I guess I’ll take your word for it??
If my cat and I travel back to 1880 to take a picture, does that mean we can spend all 140 years together until we arrive back at today?
This is something I would spend money on.
This is neat!
I‘m surprised the cat sit still for so long
Just in the living room. lmao
SUCH A GOOD BOI. Damn, I can‘t!!!
Yes. But not to be taken any seriously
Rest in Purrs old man!
The best way to get a cat to stay perfectly still is to call it over to you, try to play with it or get its attention in any way.
Everyone in this picture!
I said “wow that’s rock bottom
Cats knew they were Gods before Earth was Earth and that's the proof
Wow that is cool then I think you did a filter
who in tarnation could have made a cat pose for as long as photographs took back then
I’ve seen this before and absolutely love it 🥰
This has been posted SO MANY TIMES, on multiple subs. It's a great photo, yes, but good lord.
Yeah but we don’t live in the 1800s.
That is one dead cat
That’s the oldest not the first
How does that work?
Fun fact: people used to pose with deceased pets and even dead human relatives for actual photos.
No shit, really?!?!?!?!??!?!?!??!
A cat *would not* have been able to sit still for this long. Fake.
