You are reading this on a web page so the odds are near certain that you’ve seen a HTTP status page at some time of your browsing life. The dreaded “page not found” uh, page, is HTTP status 404. Basically, a HTTP status is a 3-digit number (depending on the error/info) that a web page ‘replies’ to requests from other web entities, which is often a web browser. There are probably a few hundred of them and we only actually see a few in our normal travels and travails on the intertubes.
It was inevitable that there would come a melding of cats and HTTP status codes. (is there anything a cat doesn’t make better?)
The following error is actually part of the Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol (HTCPCP/1.0)

More great HTTP status cats can be found at GirlieMac’s Flickr page.
