Thanks to a reader for sending:

“funny display outside the FCC that is pro-net neutrality [12th St SW at Maryland Ave.]”

From Save the Internet:

“Stroll by the FCC today and you’ll come upon an unusual sight: Cats rallying for Net Neutrality.

Felines ranging from Grumpy Cat to Colonel Meow (RIP) to the ubiquitous LOLcats have become the Internet’s unofficial mascots. According to some estimates, cat content accounts for a whopping 15 percent of all online traffic — making the average household kitty the Internet’s spirit animal.

And in the wee hours this morning more than 200 kitties gathered on the lawn outside FCC headquarters to thank Chairman Tom Wheeler for signaling that he’ll protect Net Neutrality.”
