Breaded Cats (AKA Cat Breading) is the newish trend that’s even hotter right now than onion belts were back in your grandpappy’s day. Truth be told, when we first saw it we thought it was a flash-in-the-pan that would quickly fade away, but the meme has been recently mentioned on both on The Colbert Report and Jimmy Kimmel Live and has even inspired a flash game. The lesson here: never underestimate the staying power of cats on the internet.
Anyay, how it works is simple, according to this helpful tutorial from Breaded Cats…
Cat Breading How To:
1) Take a piece of bread
2) Cut a hole approximately 1 inch larger than your cat’s head. This trips some people up. Remember: the bread has to fit around not just the cat’s head, but its ears, too.
3) Gently place the bread around your cat’s head.
4) Drive yourself to the hospital to get stitches and an eye patch.
Also, there’s nothing “gently” about putting a hat on a cat. You’ve just got to put on the beekeeper suit and get in there. Rolling the bread in catnip offers a brief respite from the ensuing homicidal rage. And yet, over a hundred people have now risked that feline confrontation to bring us hilarious pictures of breaded cats, and we’ve placed our favorites in a slideshow.

Here’s that Colbert Report clip, by the way:
I hope Colbert knows what he’s doing trusting his money to these cats. I’m not sure about their money smarts; these cats look a little inbread.
