Catsumo Wave

It is said that approximately 15% of all internet traffic is cat-related. As it stands in our universe, such a purrfect percentage is tolerable. Servers can still run. People know each other, and love each other. There is time to live, and time to breath… Time to be away from cats. Things are not the same in the Universe of the Feline. In a universe of cats, global internet trends lead to adversity, not harmony. War is rampant, and peace is unheard of. Jealousy plagues every living soul, before they even exit the womb. Love itself only manifests when a rival cat is defeated; and it is, inextricably and exclusively, a love for oneself. There are even fewer barriers to entry when uploading images of cats to the internet, on account of everyone being an actual cat. In a universe where a selfie ALSO constitutes a cat picture... There can be no peace. But... Why is this relevant? What does it have to do with WAVES?! Well... Disputes in the cat universe are settled through sumo wrestling while balancing on a wavy rope. Don’t ask how or why this came to be. It’s not important. You’re stupid for asking. If you lose combat against your opponent, you will be burned in molten lava, and never post a cat-selfie ever again… Such is the way things are in the Universe of the Feline. Such is the way things are in: CATSUMO WAVE~!
