For as long as I've had a cell phone, its lock screen has been set to an image of a cat. Cats I know IRL, viral cats I'd like to meet, meme cats who only exist in the collective consciousness: All have taken their turns occupying this prime slice of real estate on my mobile device.

Curiosity piqued, I recently took to a popular Facebook forum where I asked others to share their kitteh-themed lock screens β€” after posting mine of course (because cat tax)!

And the resultant thread, which spawned more than 100+ submissions, was both mind-blowing and relatable. From portraits and Photoshops to illustrations and funny macros, it was evident I was not alone in my dedication to the cause.

Assembled below then for your scrolling pleasure: 25 of the cutest, funniest, and most a-mew-sing (sorry, not sorry) cat-themed lock screens!
