The GeoCities cat

 

 

In the heydays of the web hosting service GeoCities (1990s-2000s), this little critter, a simple tabby cat chasing an insect, was a staple GIF on many of its sites. Sadly the sleepy and active kitty never made the jump to Web 2.0, but is an important footnote in the history of the GIF as a decoration piece.
