8 Cats Who Look Like We Feel After Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time to hit pause on our busy lives and finally practice some of that #gratitude we’ve been talking about all year. It’s our favorite feel-good holiday that doesn’t come with the expectation of romance, presents, or high glam. We can just  bask in the love of our family:  biological, chosen, furry, or a combination of all three. 

And then there’s the food — have we mentioned the food? Another thing we’re thankful for is yoga pants, because between the gravy, the pies, and five kinds of carbs, we’re going to have our Fitbits working on overdrive next week trying to make up the caloric difference.  Not that that’s a bad thing, of course. If there’s any time to stuff your face with three desserts, Thanksgiving’s it. But after that last sliver of pie is gone, the food coma hits.

These cats have nailed the highly relatable post-Thanksgiving meal stupor. They even bear a striking resemblance to certain family members.


Cousin Gene knew he shouldn’t have scarfed up the pool of leftover gravy from Grandma’s plate, but he just couldn’t help himself, and no one was really surprised.

Little Leon’s eyes were bigger than his stomach. He would later blame tryptophan for the sleepy face plant into his food.

Everyone knew that as soon as Grandpa Gus hit his favorite chair, he’d be out in a matter of minutes.
