    Having kittens?

    What does that expression mean? And the person who said it was of course not referring to a cat having babies :). Maybe it means being shocked? Upset? Angry?
    Thanks for helping :)

    God Bless!


    It means, to be very anxious or upset about something.

    Thanks!

    Re: Having kittens?

    Usually it's used in this way:

    You left my car in a mess after you used it!
    Well, don't have a kitten about it.

    Other expressions are:
    Don't get your shorts in a knot
    Don't have a hissy fit about it.
