Stop Everything & Watch This ‘Kardashians’ Spoof Starring Cats
Meow, you slore.
Are you sick of Khloe Kardashian’s revenge body conquest? Tired of Kourtney and Scott’s bickering? How about debating whether or not Kylie got lip implants? For new, wholesome entertainment to fill your cold, dead heart with glee, look no further than Iceland’s hot new reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kattarshians.”
The show, streamed by Icelandic broadcaster Nutiminn, stars 9-week-old kittens, Guðni, Stub, Bríet and Ronja. Living in one gigantic dollhouse, they roam from room to room (with hidden cameras in each!) to sleep, eat, play and wrestle for the top bunk bed. Four kittens, one dollhouse? Just imagine all the cat fights and cuddles that will explode on your screen. Three cameras provide different viewing options, so you’ll never miss a moment of the kittens napping, grooming or using the litter box.
Inga Lind Karlsdóttir is the mastermind behind the internet’s first kitten reality TV show, which has already taken off. She told Broadly the show was created in partnership with the Icelandic Cat Protection Society, and the kittens all came from a local animal rescue shelter.
“It took about a year to put together, because we wanted all the animal welfare authorities to approve it,” Karlsdóttir said. “And here we are, a year later, with the first reality TV show starring kittens. All the people who were laughing then aren’t laughing now.”
Karlsdóttir added the show led to the highest-ever traffic to Nutiminn’s website—an indication of just how much the internet fawns over cats.
“We like everything they do,” Karlsdóttir added. “It’s fun when they go crazy and ruin the house, but it’s also calming to watch them sleep. It’s good for the soul.”
The show has already helped increase the number of animal adoptions in Iceland. In fact, the four cats currently starring in the show have all been adopted. They’ll soon leave the house to make room for a new set of Kattarshians.
