I started to wonder if there was any reason cats were so popular, but didn’t know if, with all the problems in the world, anyone else cared about why.

That’s just the start of it. It’s fascinating because cats are stereotypically antisocial. But maybe that’s why.
That New York Times article points out that cats are naturally unpredictable hunters, which leads to some of their viral behaviors on the internet (staying still, staring, etc.). Turns out, this makes them overall funnier in videos and memes than dogs (sorry pups!)
Regardless of the reason, the love for feline fame continues. Something I’m purrfectly fine with.
