Ever heard of Sleepycat Software? Only known as the maintainer of Berkeley DB, but it was actually an offshoot of BSDi, the original commercial BSD vendor.

which itself is a offshoot of CSRG - the original BSD team at UC Berkeley,

which received funding from DARPA, mainly for adding a networking stack to Unix, TCP/IP in particular, which they delivered in 4.3BSD,

which powered many important Internet sites, and its TCP/IP code is used in all major operating systems. It played an extremely important role in Internet history,

Therefore, the Internet is for cats. QED.
