PSA: This is a dramati-cat-zation.
We all spoil our pets. They have no idea how harsh real life in the wild is and frequently bicker and whimper about things that really aren’t that big of a deal. Oh you didn’t get the canned wet food flavor that you wanted? CRIES. You need to be cleaned because you ran amok and made a mess? CRIES. Kitty doesn’t like the illustrious brushing and pampering? CRIES.
Cats have a special little twist of entitlement that makes them the fuzzy, bratty felines that we love so much. In fact, the brattier and sassier the cat, the better. This sort of drama and ridiculousness is the reason we squeeze and cuddle these tiny predators, while welcoming them into our homes. Oscar nomination or no, these kitties really bring on the drama with these performances.
