If someone calls you overly dramatic ever again, have this post ready at hand.

The truth is, DiCaprio has one single Oscar gathering dust on the shelf not because he got caught up in some cruel conspiracy or is simply not good enough (how dare someone think that!), but rather because they all got snatched by cats.

From taking things too personally and getting emotional all of a sudden to meowing their vocal cords out like Munch’s screaming painting, these are the same cutie pies, but on an emotional roller coaster.

Bored Panda has compiled a list full of the biggest drama felines ever that show just how throwing a tantrum looks in the animal kingdom. More feline drama awaits right here in our part 1.

Bored Panda reached out to Rachel Geller, a certified cat behavior specialist who agreed to share her expertise on why some cats are so into drama. Rachel explained that “cats are highly reactive to stress, even to situations that may seem minor to us.”

We may also perceive them as acting very dramatically because they use their bodies to communicate with us. “For example, a scared cat may puff out his tail. To us, this may seem dramatic, but from the cat's point of view, this is practical.”

If a cat is in fear of an invader or an unknown situation, “the puffed-up tail makes him appear bigger than he really is,” the cat behaviorist explained.

Rachel also said that from a human perspective, cats may look dramatic because of their “big, expressive eyes.”

Most often, humans tend to look at their pets from their own point of view and not the cat’s point of view. This is why we tend to misinterpret things.

“We think a cat rolling around on the floor is being dramatic and trying to tell us something, whereas that cat is merely getting a good stretch for her flexible body,” Rachel explained.

The cat behavior expert also said that cats are amazing communicators, but we need to pay attention to what they are saying. “You can learn how to read his signals effectively and develop a better relationship with your cat.”

We sometimes think that if cat is acting dramatically, it is trying to manipulate our emotions. But Rachel assured us that’s not the case.

“People do tend to respond to a high-pitched meow, much like we would to a crying baby, but your cat is not manipulating you.” She also added that “manipulation, revenge, and spite are traits we humans can call our very own.”
