3. Keyboard cat is so 2009.

4. Lil Bub is way behind.

Sorry Bub!

5. Felix has been on a downswing for a long time.

He never really got the Internet anyway.


6. Nyan Cat had a good run, but now it's Grumpy's turn.

7. Garfield put up a valiant fight, but Grumpy eventually won.

8. Colonel Meow was never really a contender.
