Oh, the age of social media, where the distribution of shame is as easy as a click of a button. What good does shaming do? Shaming aims to address wrong behavior by exposing it to social media users, with the ultimate aim of correcting said behavior. That is the case with humans at least, but with cats? Hmm, that might be a totally different story. There is good reason to believe that cat shaming serves the sole purpose of amusing the audience. It probably also serves to console cat owners that they are not alone in their cat-related predicaments. And then just like that, other cat people chime in as though forming a support group for owners of hilariously stubborn felines. What are these cats capable of doing? Non-cat owners are in for a huge surprise!
