Game Show


So last night...really late last night, my Human watched this show on the Game Show Network called Meow Mix Think Like A Cat. Here's my synopsis of the show: There were a bunch of stupid humans who had their cat with them. Chuck Woolery was the host. The 8 of humans put their cats in a box thing and then the cats were supposed to run to the other side of the box where their humans were. Now, cats are somewhat like Siberian huskies in that they don't always do what humans want them to. In other words, cats are smart. 3of the contestants advanced to the next round. Each of the 5 loser contestants got $1000.

The next round was trivia with a big Jeopardy style board. I kept falling asleep, so I don't exactly remember what all the questions where. There was one about what polydactyl meant, though. At the end of this round, another human/cat got eliminated, who got $10,000 and a donation to the animal charity of their choice.

The third round had the humans choose which of maybe 5 toys their cat would run to first. They'd then watch a video of their cat. The guy who guessed first when to the final round. The bad guesser got $15,000 and $1500 for their charity.

The final round had the cattestant choose a bag of cat food and the humantestant choose another bag. If each bag had a card that matched the other, the contestants would win $1,000,000.

The contestants didn't chose the matching bags so they left with $100,000.

The show wasn't as good as I'd hoped it would have been. I was hoping that the humans would have to compete in cat games. Games like, I don't know, maybe chasing mice, cleaning themselves, and batting dangling things.

The show would have been better, of course, if there were huskies destroying things.

Too funny. I hope your human didn't need that. I can't tell if that was a newspaper or a book! You look pretty pleased with yourself. You should meet up with me....my human calls me a "termite".

The cats in our house make us play stupid games all the time. So far, the only prize has been their amusement.

We love the photo on this post--it looks a whole lot like ones we ran this week, too. Is that Dr. Meepie working on some medical files?

Cats and humans...can't figure them out.

Sounds like a howling good time. but we think the show would have been better with siberians.

I'm glad we didn't stay up to watch that. It doesn't sound so good. My catbrother would have sat and stared at my mom until she came down to her to get him.

We think your idea of a fun game would have been better too!

Or better, Siberians chasing cats. The prize would be built in. Oops - we have just been accused of cruelty to cats.
