Cats Wanting Fruit Loops refer to images showing cats seemingly yearning for bowls of the breakfast cereal Fruit Loops. Variations on the concept began growing popular on Twitter in July of 2018.
On August 7th, 2017, Imgur user hugmind posted an image of a cat sitting on its hind legs, appearing to be begging for a bowl of Fruit Loops (shown below).
The image was later used in Brother, May I Have Some Oats? variations. An edit appeared on Imgur from user WeylandNZ on August 28th (shown below, left). Another edit more closely following the "Brother May I Have Some Oats?" template later appeared on Starecat.
The image and variations on the concept began surging in July of 2018. On the 8th, Twitter user @HeckinCades posted a Slaps Roof of Car variation that gained over 670 retweets and 1,700 likes (shown below, left). A photoshopped variation inserting the cat into a shot of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild tweeted by @TightEndTeen gained over 3,400 retweets and 9,400 likes (shown below, right).
On September 26th, 2019, Imgur user hugmind, who posted the original image and claims to have been friends with the owner of the cat, made a post in which they announced that the cat has passed at the age of nine, with the post accumulating over 125,100 views in one day. According to hugmind, the cat died from heart disease. The Imgur posts were subsequently deleted.
In the hours following the announcement, numerous memes honoring the memory of the cat were posted online on Reddit (examples shown below).

On September 28th, Facebook user Tayler Marchment published several posts claiming that the cat was her "mom's boyfriends cat" named Tank and that she was still alive. Shortly after, Marchment posted a screenshot of the original loops picture posted on Instagram the same day it had gone viral on Imgur (shown below, right).
