Give Me That New Time Religion

Even the denizens of the internet require the solace of religion from time to time. And to fill that void comes Ceiling Cat.

The Lolcat equivalent of God, Ceiling Cat is a picture of an apparently concerned cat popping his head through the ceiling of an unnamed room.Ceiling Cat Uncaptioned

This is a take on the old “God is watching you all the time- especially when you’re doing wrong” schtik.

Of course, being the online equivalent of Christianity, Lolianity also has a similar story:

“Long ago, Ceiling Cat’s favorite kitten, Lightcat, rebelled against Ceiling Cat. Seeking to become Top Cat, Lightcat recruited one third of the cats in Cat Heaven and attempted to drive C.C. out. Of course, he was immediately pwned by Ceiling Cat, who cast him out of Cat Heaven (located somewhere in the Ceiling) and into Cat Hell (located somewhere in the Basement). Thus chastised, Lightcat became one with the darkness; assuming the name Basement Cat, he and his fallen feline followers (known as Devil Cats) took on a new mission: to drag as many cats as they could down with them.

It is said that someday Ceiling Cat and Basement Cat will meet in final battle. This day will come at the end of time itself and should not be confused with Catnarok, which is a cyclical “cleansing of the cosmic litterbox” and not a final apocalypse. At the end, the prophecy says, all beings (human and feline) will be judged by Ceiling Cat on their actions towards others. People who have been mean to cats will be told to GTFO and will dwell in the darkness below with Basement Cat for all time. Those who have shown kindness to cats (and humans) will live on in bliss in Cat Heaven.” (From Encyclopedia Dramatica)

Basement Cat arrives upon our mortal plane...

Of course, it does not end there. Ceiling Cat gives us commandments:Ceiling Cat Commandments

And even has his own Bible! No joke, see? You can even buy your own copy on!

So, in conclusion, repent for the end is nigh! Ceiling Cat is a vengeful Catgod! And so on and so forth. If you wish to learn more about the awesome Ceiling Cat, Google is a friend to the faithful.
