Cat's Dramatic 'Death' Branded Academy Award-Worthy: 'The Drama'

A cat has gone viral for her "Academy Award" performance, after appearing to dramatically pretend to faint on camera, leaving the internet in stitches.

In a video shared on Reddit by the cat's owner, who goes by the username C47L1K3, the cat, a small Norwegian forest cat called Sidney, can be seen performing her outstanding act, pretending to pass out in her garden.

Sidney's performance was so credible that further down in the comments, her owner reassured some worried users she was fine, and went back to grooming herself after the Oscar-worthy performance.

The post, which has so far reached about 15,500 upvotes and over 100 comments since Sunday, also featured a caption that says: "My cat died a Hollywood death."

Norwegian forest cats are very playful and intelligent creatures, according to data by website Dailypaws. They are very active, sociable and affectionate, and this makes them really good with children, seniors, dogs, other cats and families.

They are very easy to train and behave very friendly with other pets and humans, even with strangers. They love company and tolerate being picked up, unlike many other cats.

Their weight usually ranges between 12 to 16 pounds, depending on sex and age, and their life expectancy is usually around 14 to 16 years.

Most users were impressed by the cat's performance. One user, Vrcekpiva, commented: "The drama." And Revenant62 added: "This cat clearly deserves an Academy Award for Best Meow. while kitty is being introduced at primetime before the whole country, give 'em some tuna and catnip, and then those human actors and actresses can make themselves useful by giving a standing ovation to the real star of the show."

Another user, TecTazz, joked: "Oh, the humanity!" Iced-coffeelvr said: "Did anyone else do a finger gun to add the drama, or just me?" And Not-yourName added: "Watched it a hundred times."
