1. The start of the coughing cat meme
The start of the coughing cat meme as we know it can be traced back to Dec. 18, 2018, when @40ozAliah tweeted “this is how lil kids cough”. You know what? She’s still not wrong. Though, you know, teach your kids how to cover their mouths when they do cough.
2. Getting out of school pre-quarantine
Before lockdowns and stay at home orders were part of our daily lives, kids would try to get out of school by faking sick. This use of the coughing cat meme shows just how they would do it. Though by the time school is back in session and social distancing is lifted, kids will probably want to be in school and away from home for a little bit.
3. Today years old when you see the real face
This is what the coughing cat looked like pre-Photoshop, do you feel old yet?

Many memes are experiencing updates in this coronavirus world, it’s unsurprising that the coughing cat meme is one of them.
5. Coughing Pikachu?
Sometimes combining memes can be a good thing. But coughing cat and shocked Pikachu may have scarily similar faces. This match up, however, is just . . . disturbing to say the least.
6. Roasting OG live-action Sonic design
Oh, why does this nightmare fuel exist? Yet, we can’t tell the difference between this and the original live-action Sonic design for the movie.
7. Anime villain punches hero in the gut
Anyone who has watched Dragon Ball Z will tell you that this interpretation is not wrong.
