Cats tend to be cranky creatures even under the best of circumstances. So you can imagine how they might react to discovering that their homes have been inundated with up to several feet of water.
Or you can just look at the cat above, whose face really says it all.
Photographer Scott Olson captured this incredible image in Houston on August 30, in the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s tear through Houston.
The internet being what it is, it didn’t take long for this little kitty to get meme-ified. Turns out cute cat + angry expression = the ideal projection of our collective rage, whether it’s about the devastation in Houston or just about life in general.
One person turned it into a scathing indictment of the anti-science crowd that also doubled as an all-too-appropriate Saga reference.
Still others admired this kitty for his steely-eyed resilience.
Expect this meme to stick around for a while.
As for what happened to the original cat, KPRC 2 Houston believes he found his way to safety atop a car …
… But Scott Olson, the original photographer, doesn’t seem so sure.
Most of the people had been evacuated and the cat was in no mood to be messed with so he is probably still on his own.

Wherever you are, pissed-off Harvey cat, we hope you’re happy and healthy. And thank you for reminding us that sometimes, you just gotta rage in the face of adversity.
