About This Quiz

Close your eyes and picture yourself as a cat. Are you a big cat? Are you a small cat? Are you fluffy or smooth? Now, answer our questions, and we'll let you know if your spirit animal is most like a lion, a jaguar, or a house cat. 

Although it's nice to imagine ourselves as cats, the only real way to figure out which one is your spirit animal is to get to know you better. As we go through this quiz, we want to know about all your cat-like and your not so cat-like traits. We will also be nosy enough to inquire about the way you get through your days and the foods you find most tempting.

While different humans have different characteristics, the same is true for the world's cat species. After we get to know you and your habits better than your credit card company knows what you like to buy, we'll be able to compare you. Once we figure out which cat you have the most in common with, we'll let you know if you are more of a lion in the jungle or a cat in the litter box. You've always wanted to know, and meow's your chance!
