#4: Historical Cats Vs. Modern Cats
It’s been a running joke that the internet was made solely for cat memes, and this proves that cat memes have been around for long before the internet ever came about. It also proves that artists depicting cats in the Middle Ages had probably never seen a cat in their life.
I doubt they went from hard-working members of society to the ungrateful puddles of fur they are today. Still, not all cats have the luxury of lying on keyboards. There are many scrappy kitties out there who work hard to survive and would probably scare the daylights out of their medieval versions.
