Knife Cat refers to an edit of Smug Cat's face photoshopped onto a picture of a cat being threatened with a knife. The image has been frequently used in photoshops and artwork.


The image of the cat being threatened by a knife originates from a post on pikabu of a scared cat being threatened by a knife with the title "threats will not work".[1] The image was first posted on July 9th, 2014 by user kimax06 and has since gained over 1 thousand likes.

The "Knife Cat" image is a combination of the above image and Smug Cat. The first instance of the two pictures being combined is in a gallery on Imgur entitled "Scaredy cat", posted on March 12th, 2015 by Imgur[3] user SnapTucker. In the gallery, the first photo is a merge of the two images, and the second photo is the original body image with a second knife (shown below).
