For us humans, 2020 has been a bleak year filled with devastation, sorrow and existential dread.
But cats, collectively as a species, took the red pill long ago, seeing though the Matrix at the mess that this world has always been.
So, in honor of News Year’s Eve 2020 — a day in which “Jumanji” trended on Twitter with its users begging for humanity to utter the word at midnight so we can “end this year’s game” — here are 24 tweets about cats who, perhaps like many of us, just want to see the world, or 2020, burn.

My younger cat goes into the spare bedroom every night when it’s entirely dark, like, completely pitch black, can’t see a thing dark, and she sits on the dresser and just screams into the void. No idea why, but very relatable.— Brooklynn Dean (@LadyBrooklynn) December 31, 2020
