Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry took to popular social media platform Instagram today to show off her love of her feline friends -- and to engage in a longstanding internet meme tradition at the same time. Knowingly or not, Berry's sharing of a sweet snapshot showing her lovingly petting her furry friend on Saturday -- or "Caturday," as it is known to cat lovers the world over -- means that she has participated in a meme that has been going on for well over a decade, according to Know Your Meme.
In the image, what is ostensibly Halle Berry's hand is featured alongside a reclining feline, lying on its side. The cat, which appears to be a slender short-haired tabby, appears calm but alert as it rests on some stonework which is embedded by round rocks. Halle Berry's hand enters the frame and gently rests upon the cat's neck and collar, offering comfort to the feline in repose. Bedecked in expensive-looking jewelry, such as an ornate oval-shaped turquoise and red ring emblazoned with gold filigree, Halle's hand acts as a display for some of her more unique accessories.
Resting on her wrist are a number of delicate bangles of varying description, one half a tawny, flat-finished bronze or copper and the other half a bright silver.
