What Type of Cat Do You Become When Hungry?

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Waterloo chapter.

Fall: apple cider, time to rake leaves, hot chocolate, pumpkin pie, time to start studying for midterms, apple pie, and, of course, turkey dinner (the most important part being spending time together with friends and family stuffing). However, with great appetite comes great risk – many people, myself included, abruptly transform when hungry. Read on to find out what type of cat you become when you’re hungry.

1. Sleepy Cat

When you haven’t eaten all day, do you have trouble keeping your eyes when reading your textbook? Have you lost the energy to listen to your professors drone on? Do you find yourself fantasizing about falling asleep and having a nice dream only to wake up and realize that you were dreaming about falling asleep and having a nice dream? If so, you’re Sleepy Cat, who believes the best way to cope with stomach pangs is to curl up in bed.

2. Sad Cat

When you forget your lunch on the bus and don’t have time to go to Tim Hortons between back-to-back lectures, do tears start forming in the corner of your eyelids? Do you whimper when you accidentally drop food on the floor? Do you howl when you spill your first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season? If you nodded your head to any of these questions, you are Sad Cat, who can’t be consoled by anyone, cat or human, when hungry.  

3. Grumpy Cat

When you realize that you’ve run out of food and a) don’t want to have to cook, but b) have no more money to buy food, do you start to bear a resemblance to a meme-worthy certain feline? If so, no further explanation is needed – your face says it all, Grumpy Cat.   

4. Scary Cat

When you realize that your roommate stole your leftover takeout, the kind you had been looking forward to having for dinner all day, do you abruptly morph into a horrifying and perhaps bloodthirsty being? Do you want revenge? Are you planning to bite your roommate with your new-found fangs? If you caught yourself agreeing with this description, you’re Scary Cat, who believes in an eye for an eye, or, more appropriately, a life for a box of leftovers.  

5. Happy Cat    

Are you just so used to be always hungry that you don’t let your hunger affect you? Do you simply carry around a bag of snacks to munch on all day (and night) long? Do you even become happy when you find yourself hungry, as that means it’s time to eat again? If you answered in the affirmative to any of these questions, you’re Happy Cat; the cat who never lets a stomach pang or two wipe the smile away from his/her/their whiskers.
