These nice thank-you memes were made with pictures of my current cats, cats that I have fostered, or cats from my yard. Some of the cats are ear-tipped (missing tip of one ear) which means they have been through a trap-neuter-return (TNR) program.
I used my own cat pictures because I have thousands of cute cat pictures and am the copyright owner of them (so I didn’t have to worry about where the pictures came from like on meme generator sites). If you use one of the images on your website, please link to this page as the source.
Using a meme is a quick way to say thank you and express your gratitude. If you decide you want to write a note, check out the 5 steps to writing a thank you note here or get A Modern Guide to Writing Thank-You Notes on Amazon.
Do you already know how to write thank-you notes but need help with the wording? Check out the list of example posts by topic (wedding, graduation, money, boss, funeral, etc.) covered here.
Should a thank you meme replace thank you note?
No. But not everyone will write thank-you notes and a meme is better than not saying thank you at all. Express your gratitude! And memes are not appropriate in all situations. Use your best judgment!
The memes are loosely divided into sections which you can jump to below. Some of them are cuter than others, and the cat teapot may be considered creepy by some!
These memes could be used at work and there are some included that say boss on them.
Please and thank you memes
These memes were inspired by Ron Swanson on the show “Parks and Recreation”.
Memes to thank your boss
You might want to include a meme when thanking your boss for a gift, raise, promotion, or lunch! This is only recommended if you think your boss will appreciate it. You could also email the meme and follow up with a handwritten thank-you note (or do the note first!).
Thanks for lunch memes
Normally, I would not say “thanks a bunch for lunch” in a thank you note, but maybe it’s funny in a meme!

Memes with more words than thanks or thank you

There are many images below. The first one of the cat in space is my favorite of them all. It features my cat Lina who is not ear-tipped, but looks ear-tipped because the original picture didn’t have her full ear in it.
