7/22/2002: Possible TV show for cats



Insanity: The company that makes Meow Mix cat food did a study, found that there are 85 million cat owners, and 22% of those will watch TV that they think their pets will enjoy. And so they are setting out to create "Meow TV", a 30-minute TV show just for cats.

"There will be squirrels, bouncing balls, birds and all the things cats love to watch," says the Meow Mix CEO.

OK. Be sure to outfit your TV with a complete 5.1 Dolby Surround system so that your cat is truly fooled into believing the projected animals are real.

I was watching a nature show about lions one evening, and my cat started staring intently at it, then walked over and sat right in front of the set, watching, just like the cat in the image. He especially liked the shots of the lions hunting. But this has only happened once.
He used to watch the weatherperson, and especially liked the arm waving in front of the weather map which would appear, wave around, and then disappear off the edge of the screen. He tried to jump at it a few times.

So cats do watch TV. But mine, at least, gets bored with it, knowing that it is not interactive.

My former next-door neighbor's cat (she's my former neighbor, Rio is probably still a cat) used to hang out in my house all the time. He especially liked watching Animal Planet. While they aren't IOTD quality, I think these <a href="http://www.synaesthetic.net/~elemental/visual/photos.php?who=rio&page=2">pictures</a> are pretty good.

My cat will watch anything on TV, especially if there's a lot of motion. I don't think it's that she cares about the images so much as the color and movement.

The pictues of Rio are quite good. I have some somewhere of my cat Pewter batting at the set while the weather report was on, but don't know where they are. Yours show what Rio was watching.
