ANIMAL PLANET TO LAUNCH CAT BIG BROTHER SHOW
A US cable network is hoping to wow cat fans with a new feline BIG BROTHER show. Animal Planet bosses will air MEOW MIX HOUSE for 10 weeks this summer (06).
* The hour-long weekly show will feature 10 cats sharing the same apartment and competing for Best Purr and Top Post-climber.
* A panel of judges will vote a cat out of the house every week.
I didn’t actually believe this at first, but there’s actually a web site about the show at: www.meowmixhouse.com
