BBC describes the short story as “being shared widely online as social media users discuss how much it relates to modern day dating”. The Washington Post describes it as unique among the content in The New Yorker, because it resonated with a younger audience commenting, “for one of the first times, something in the magazine seemed to capture the experience not of print-oriented, older intellectuals but of Millennials.” The story is the year's most downloaded fiction published in The New Yorker, and also one of the most read pieces overall of 2017. The Atlantic notes that "The depiction of uncomfortable romance in “Cat Person” seems to resonate with countless women," and describes it as a “literary adjunct to the latest #MeToo moment.” Personal reactions have been largely, but not entirely, along gender lines (roughly akin to those to Jane Austen), and for many readers, it captures what it is like to be a woman in her twenties in 2017, including “the desperate need to be considered polite and nice at all costs.” Following the story's success, Roupenian secured a seven figure deal with Scout Press for her debut book, and was the subject of a bidding war in the American market, with offers exceeding $1m.
