    She had opened the crate when the cat made one of his
    dramatic appearances, and she remembered that it was
    some time since she had last seen him; it was time that he
    went out. She straightened herself and set the front door
    open, saying, ‘Come along, puss.’ The cat took three steps
    in the desired direction and then jumped sideways, taking
    refuge under the gate-legged table.

    Does "dramatic" mean "sudden" here?
    The cat suddenly appeared again.

    Re: dramatic

    Yes but it also has a touch suprising, unexpected and the theatrical.
