Thursday Internet Tradition: Status Cats

Hoydens are aware of all Internet traditions! But we share our hard-won cultural knowledge!

This week, we return briefly to our lolcat roots, or at least near to them.

GirlieMac has created Status Cats, corresponding to HTTP return codes. HTTP return codes are 3 digit codes that web servers return to indicate what kind of response or content they are serving up: you probably recognise 404 (“Not Found”) and 500 (“Internal Server Error”) from your net travels:

404 - Not Found

500 - Internal Server Error

The full set is at Flickr, and it’s still (as of time of writing) missing quite a few of the full list of codes. Can you find a cat for 101 (“Switching Protocols”), 201 (“Created”), 301 (“Moved Permanently”), or 415 (“Unsupported Media Type”), for example?

This is an open Status Cat thread. Other Internet protocols in cat form accepted!

Please post a link to a FULL webpage, rather than a direct link to an image only – that is, no URLs with .jpg, .png, .gif (etc) on the end. This makes our admin image magic quicker and easier. Just copy and paste what’s in your URL bar, and we’ll go fetch the embed code. **If you post the embed code, it will be automatically stripped out.** Thanks!

  1. ROFL that’s too funny! I hadn’t seen the Status Cats before.
    Oh, not sure why but my screen name comes up as either Louise or French Queen – doesn’t matter, they’re both me, just wanted to say I’m not pretending to be two people!
