Something strange is going on with these animals, is it because of the music? The song is a remixed version of Nyan Cat song, the gif's are mostly from 4chan and 4gif.
Origins - On April 2, 2011, Chris Torres (PRGuitarman) posted the original animated gif on LOL-COMICS, a comics site. - On April 5, 2011, "saraj00n" posted a YouTube video of the image, set to Daniwell Aidn's UTAU song Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya. A popular theme on Japanese video sharing site Nico Nico Douga is to set anime figures bobbing to the song, which was uploaded January 31, 2010. - Sometime afterward, Huy Hong created the Nyan Cat website, essentially a loop of Nyan Cat with Daniwell Aidn's Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya.
Currently the newest sensation of memes. The original video was off Youtube on the morning of June 28, 2011, but it got put back up that afternoon. Huy Hong and Chris Torres currently dispute the origins of the meme, with Hong claiming responsibility for the meme's popularity, and Torres claiming that Hong is "SINGLE HANDEDLY STEALING THE WORK OF OTHERS", proving, once again, that internet cats are serious business.
On June 27th 2011, Saraj00n's Nyan Cat video got DMCA'd by someone posing as PRguitarman. This poser filed a false copyright claim to YouTube which caused the Nyan Cat video to removed. Immense butthurt was caused and many lulz were had. Shortly after the video was taken down, PRguitarman shat himself over the hate comments he was receiving on his channel and videos. When he realized what happened, he made [this blog post crying about how he was being impersonated and that he was being wrongly accused of flagging down the video.
On June 28th 2011, the video was restored after Prguitarman, Saraj00n, and DaniwellP got together and filed counter-DMCAs.
