20 Melodramatic Cats That Just Can't Handle The Real World

If you're a cat lover, you probably know their strange behavior well. When kitties react to things, what happens next is often unexpected. From pretending to die to meeting new babies, this collection of dramatic cats just shows that they deserve an Oscar for their overreactions.

1. Reenacting His Favorite Scene

This cat must have gotten inspiration from his feline cousins in The Lion King. He reenacts the scene where Mufasa falls into a gorge. The kitty is so dedicated to his performance that even his claws are out in an effort to hang on for dear life.

This cat obviously didn't know what it was getting itself into on this trip with his canine sibling and his human. The look in his eyes spells bewilderment, fear, and curiosity all in one. The completely unamused look on the dog tells us that maybe they're on the way to the vet.

3. Don't Look At Me!

The closer the camera got to this snowy feline, the less interested he seems to be. Perhaps the photographer should have spent more time comforting the snow-covered, freezing kitty.

Cats seemingly care less about your presence, but this kitty might suggest otherwise. Maybe she's unhappy that her owner had to leave for work all day, so this cutie decided, "Fine! Just leave me here to die!"

The look of sheer horror on this cat's face raises so many questions. What is he gasping at? What is that mysterious shard floating before him? Perhaps he just witnessed something… something bad.

7. Why Have You Forsaken Me!?

This howling kitty is bawling its eyes out after having an emotional day of being a cat. Perhaps her human left for work but didn't put out enough food for her!

The cat on the right seems to have a bit of an attachment issue going on. Just look at the way she's holding on to her sibling, who apparently has been over it.

9. You Had Me Fooled

Many pets are excited to get in their human's car for an adventure, but they aren't happy when the adventure leads them right to the vet's office. That is exactly what happened to this unsuspecting kitty, who couldn't help giving her human the stink eye on the way home. She can't believe she was fooled to visit the vet and get inside a pet carrier!

10. I Can't Believe My Eyes

This feisty femme fatale feline is every college girl who is sick of being hit on. College girls would be so much better off if they could just master this cat's side-eye. 

12. I Told You Not To Lock The Door

Before the downpour began, this cat walked outside and told his humans, "Meow," but what he really said was "Don't lock the door, I'm coming right back!" His humans apparently didn't listen to him and locked him outside in the rain. Not only is he upset that he's soaking wet, but he is also pretty frustrated that his humans didn't even bother to call him back inside!

13. What Are You Looking At?

This kitty looks incredibly offended at something her human did. Her human posted this picture saying, "My cat gives me this look sometimes," telling us that this is a regular occurrence. The cat obviously has some issues to work through if she gets so easily offended. Perhaps her human looked at her the wrong way, which was enough to trigger this facial response.

14. A Cat With Puppy Dog Eyes

Someone is obviously lobbying for Best Actress at the Oscars next year. Look at the way she emotes with her eyes! We're sorry, kitty, but you're no Puss in Boots from Shrek. We love your dedication though, so keep trying. With time, you'll probably be able to compel your human into doing anything with this perfect sad-cat look.

15. If You Can't Stand The Heat, Get A Personal Fan

20 Melodramatic Cats That Just Can't Handle The Real World_15

We're always so preoccupied with how humans are dealing with heat that we often forget to think about the pets. This dramatic kitty won't be beaten by the heat. If keeping yourself cool means splooting out all day in front of a fan, then so be it. This cat even has its tail moved to one side to allow for maximum cool breeze airflow. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.

16. It's Not Easy Being A Cat

20 Melodramatic Cats That Just Can't Handle The Real World_16

The life of a house cat is apparently not easy. After an entire day of doing cat things - staring out the window for 3 hours, bathing in the sunlight of said window for another two, grooming itself in the corner for 30 minutes - this cat is just absolutely exhausted. He then decided to end his laborious day with something on TV, but the boring news sent him right to sleep.

17. I'm Coming Out!

20 Melodramatic Cats That Just Can't Handle The Real World_17

Perhaps this is the sassiest dramatic cat on this list. Just look at the way it's sashaying into the sunlight, which looks like it's ready to take on the world! A cat with this confidence clearly knows where it's going in life and doesn't need anything to hold it back. You'd better not get in its way because this cat looks like he'll serve you a good helping of sass if you do.

18. You're Going To Pay

20 Melodramatic Cats That Just Can't Handle The Real World_18

The cat's owner made a huge mistake. Obviously, they accidentally knocked over her bowl of milk and didn't have any leftovers to replace it. When it's time for the human to eat dinner, this kitty sat across from them with this look on her face. She is clearly unhappy that you interrupted her milk time. Now she's just going to stare you into guilt for the rest of the day.

19. Looking For A Fight

20 Melodramatic Cats That Just Can't Handle The Real World_19

Someone is ready for a fight! One can only guess what this cat may be snarling at in the picture, but it should be pretty threatening to incite a dramatic fighting stance like this. You wouldn't want to be anywhere near this cat with such a look on its face. You'd better not cross paths with him because if you do, you have to be ready to catch these paws!

20. Don't Touch Me

20 Melodramatic Cats That Just Can't Handle The Real World_20

Cats are very strange. One minute they don't want you to touch them, and the next they ask for every ounce of your attention. They'll get you in the routine of petting them every night before bed just to switch it up one day for fun. Don't think about belly rubs unless the stars are aligned. Make sure to watch out for their mood swings when Furrcury is in retrograde.
