The Worst Cat is a single topic Tumblr blog which features photos and GIFs of a baby hippo which is being presented as "the worst cat."


On September 4th, 2014, the Tumblr blog The Worst Cat[1] was created. The first post is a detailed outline of the worst cat, which explains:

"Welcome to the Worst Cats. Some people like all breeds of cat. But I think some breeds are just gross.
"Oh man I don’t like looking at deformed animals" – coworker
"I don[‘t think that’s a cat, Sara. HOw did you find out about this cat" – cat expert
"It looks like a combination between a cat, a dog and a pig. Is that what they look like when they’re newborn?" – friend
"That’s disgusting. Are you trolling me?" – computer expert
"That is a hippo" – someone who knows nothing about cats"

The blog features photos and GIFs of baby hippos, "the worst cat."


On October 2nd, io9[2] published a post about the blog titled "This Is the Greatest Cat-Related Tumblr You Have Ever Read." The same day Catster[3] published an article titled "Mmm, Moist: We Love This Tumblr Called 'The Worst Cat'."
