LOLcats, for your information, is an Internet legacy composed of amusing images of cats with a humorous caption appended to each one, mostly queer and grammatically flawed, the way a cat world pronounce if she could speak.
LOLcat combines two distinct words – LOL an abbreviated form of ”laughing out loud” and cat.
The man who created a cult called LOLcats was a photographer named Harry Whittier Frees (1879–1953), who decked out his cats named Rags and Fluff, plus lot many other pets kept by his friends, and made them pose like humans in a real-life situation with props, clicking pictures and each picture having a caption.
The dresses with which Frees bedecked the cats were custom-made outfits stitched by her mother, that kept the animals in an upright stance.
Mr. Frees explained about his work with these words: ”The strange pictures showing real animals became realizable due to the dogged determination and boundless tenderness of a photographer at every single second of the entire performance.”
Frees’s animal pictures appeared on post cards, calendars, books, advertising materials, and articles for “Woman’s World” and “Child Life” magazines.
He also wrote beautiful stories to coincide with his pictures.
