If you've ever had the pleasure of living with a cat, then you’ve undoubtedly already been informed that their entire race is, in a word: perfect. A truth proclaimed by kitty kind for years, cats have grown tired of being constantly doubted by humanity and have devised a way to prove their absolute flawlessness through the use of math. Here you'll find a collection of their findings, which they insist you now behold, admitting to feline perfection, via these Golden Ratio cat pictures.

In math, the cats explained to us, there’s what's known as the Golden Ratio, or Fibonacci sequence, which consists of a series of numbers. Each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. This sequence forms a design which is often found in nature and is - these Golden Ratio cats say - proof of their absolute and undeniable perfection. The perfect cats you’re about to feast your eyes on suspect you may not quite get it and assure you that not only are they not surprised, but that it’s okay.

Fear not, they assure you, even if you aren’t exactly a math genius, each and every member of kitty kind is a genius at all things ever. They are fairly sure they’ve made the following presentation simple enough that even we mere humans should be able to grasp it.
