^^Why is it that (in general) so many of these types of posters feature cats? Why not other animals? A general question that often plagues me when I see these Smile

It's an Internet meme called Lolcats.

Internet meme
The term Internet meme (pronounced /miːm/, meem) is a phrase used to describe a catchphrase or concept that spreads quickly from person to person via the Internet, much like an inside joke. The term is a reference to the concept of memes, although this concept refers to a much broader category of cultural information.

Lolcats
A lolcat is an image combining a photograph, most frequently of a cat, with a humorous and idiosyncratic caption in (often) broken English—a dialect which is known as "lolspeak", "kitteh" or "kitty pidgin" and which parodies the poor grammar typically attributed to Internet slang. The name "lolcat" is a compound word of the acronymic abbreviation "LOL" and the word "cat". A synonym for "lolcat" is cat macro, since the images are a type of image macro. Lolcats are designed for photo sharing imageboards and other internet forums.

The term lolcat gained national media attention in the United States when it was covered by Time, which wrote that non-commercialized phenomena of the sort are increasingly rare, stating that lolcats have "a distinctly old-school, early 1990s, Usenet feel to [them]".

Cats don't like me Frown I always wanted a cat but almost every cat I knew ended up scratching me!
So I've got a dog who likes to curl up on my knee - best of both worlds!

Hmm... it seems like Tommy is jokingly trying to distract Roger.  It would be quite funny if Tommy actually held his racket over the net right over the ball to "block" Roger's shot from crossing over.  He was close enough to be able to do it.
