It all started with a simple tweet at 1:58 p.m.

Ben Simmons asked his Twitter following about the cat.

One hour and 19 minutes later, Simmons decided to participate himself.

For those out of the loop, Sixers fan @GipperGrove started the social media movement — one we can surely affirm is one the world has never seen before — in which fans raise their cats after each Sixers win, which there have been plenty of recently.

The Sixers won their third straight game on Friday night, squeaking out a 93-92 win over the Trail Blazers and are now 8-2 in their last 10 games. Joel Embiid is legit, and this team, in Year 4 of The Process, is making basketball great again in Philly. And all of this without Simmons, the 2016 No. 1 overall pick who's still rehabing a Jones fracture in his right foot.

To celebrate Simmons' cat-raising, @GipperGrove pinned this to his Twitter page.

#RaiseTheCat lives on.
