Purrvivor?

I am both fascinated and appalled…

In “The Real World” tradition, 10 cats are sent to live in a swanky apartment specially designed with felines in mind. It’s stocked with an aquarium, scratching posts, loft beds and even a backyard with barbecue. The “cat-testants” – picked from shelters and rescue groups in 10 cities and tended 24-7 by members of the ASPCA – compete in various challenges to prove they are Meow Mix Material, such as purring, catching toy mice and falling asleep.

Voiceovers add a splash of drama and fun, although any onscreen romances have been nipped in the bud (each pet is spayed or neutered).

(snip)

In the Aug. 18 finale, the judges’ pick of the litter is crowned feline vice president of research and development at Meow Mix in charge of taste-testing new products.

Viewers also can visit www.MeowMixHouse.com to vote for the Viewer’s Choice, who also lands a job with the company. And everyone leaves a happy kitty, because each former stray is sent home to a loving family with a year’s supply of Meow Mix.

This may be the first watchable reality show since 70s House. It probably doesn’t hurt that the episodes are only three minutes long…

    I am just appalled.
    I don’t even watch the “reality” teeeve shows with homo sapiens in them so felines are out of question.
    The onle reality is out there not on teevee.
