Animal Planet Crazy for Cats
Though cats have been intertwined with the narrative of human history at least as far back as the earliest days of the Egyptian Empire, it is no understatement to say that our feline friends had been playing second fiddle to their canine counterparts until recently, that is. With the birth and rapid expansion of the World Wide Web, cats have managed to entrench themselves within the modern cultural environment to an extent unseen since Cleopatra was on the throne! Growing from a handful of hilarious viral images and videos, it is safe to say that the Cat-crazed phenomenon has officially gone mainstream.
Even network television wants in on the action! Animal Planet has been providing quality animal entertainment for years, but their program only truly shone the spotlight of the feline set recently. Now, Animal Planet boasts 3 shows exclusively devoted to the fun, adorable, quirky, and sometimes infuriating nature of that mysterious animal known as the house cat.
Check out Wendy, Lucky, and Pasha’s guide to this kitty cable experience and decide for yourself which one looks good enough to sink your claws into.
Cats 101 celebrates cats of all breeds shapes and sizes. Exploring history, temperament, physical attributes, and unique quirks, Cats 101 features a new breed every episode and is jam packed with information that is as entertaining as it is enlightening. Cats have recently over taken dogs as the most popular pet in the country, and thus it should come as no surprise that human fans are ravenous for the inside scoop on these fabulous felines.
Join the larger than life, self-proclaimed “Cat Whisperer” Jackson Galaxy as he restores harmony to the homes of some hapless humans and their infuriating felines! Galaxy knows that working with Cats it’s not always a walk in the park, but he is dedicated towards opening up the line of communication between these purring pugilists and their pet parents. And Galaxy doesn’t always play by the books. This animal empath by day is a rock star by night and has the guitar case full of cat therapy toys to prove it! The cats featured on this show range from timid to aggressive, but Galaxy is always up for the challenge. Watch as homes and families on the brink of feline fallout are repaired, revitalized, and revamped.
Musician and avid cat lover John Fulton hosts this whimsical romp through all of the country’s fantastic feline finds from kitty couture in Texas to a very special brand of coffee beans that are scooped out of cat poop! Fulton visits cats and their humans (much like Wendy he never says owner as he understands that a cat can never be owned) and brings their stories to the small screen while writing some meow-worthy music along the way. Join Fulton as he uncovers the nation’s most unique displays of feline affection.
