While it’s true that cat memes are the currency of the internet, non-cat-owners might forget that all those adorable cat pics mask little monsters that people actually live with. They shit in your house, scratch up your sofa, climb on top of the refrigerator, and demand food on a regular basis, often several hours before you were planning to get up. (This writer’s tabby cat spends an awful lot of time walking across the keyboard, sending cryptic late-night instant messages to co-workers.) Even if you’re deathly allergic to cats, you can now know what it’s like to share your life with one: A guy named Will Herring, sick of his cat waking him up at 3 a.m. every day, created a game called My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up At 3 a.m. Every Day. The player, as the cat, knocks over everything in the bedroom, and can meow and knead its paws to deplete the owner’s sleep meter. Thus deprived of sleep, the owner wakes up and insults his cat. Note that cat owners may find this game too close to real life to actually enjoy, but you can play Garbage Cat… here.
