Miette is an internet-famous cat who lives with poet Patricia Lockwood.[1] She is the subject of a meme that is used in all kinds of situations, including fannish ones.

On March 19, 2019, Lockwood posted the following tweet:

me, lightly touching miette with the side of my foot: miette move out of the way please so I don’t trip on you

miette, her eyes enormous: you KICK miette? you kick her body like the football? oh! oh! jail for mother! jail for mother for One Thousand Years!!!! [2]

The tweet became extremely popular as it humorously summed up the over-dramatic tendencies of cats, and quickly became a meme. It is often referenced simply with its first line ("you KICK [name of person/thing]?"), but many versions reproduce the entire tweet.

Miette is also the subject of fanworks, such as fanart and fancomics that reference the meme.
