Feline “Big Brother”: How a reality show about cats is causing a stir
With the name “Keeping Up With The Kattarshians” (a spoof of Keeping Up With the Kardashians), this Icelandic reality show has been a big success.
In this version of Big Brother pets, there are five kittens. They live in an animal shelter and have hundreds of adventures. The idea of this program to show the “the real life of cats” is based on a show that follows the Kardashian family in the US (featuring Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and Kanye West, among others).
The format of the show is similar, but with very different main characters. The Icelandic project was carried out in collaboration with the local Cat Protection Society. The objective was to raise awareness among residents about adopting pets.
What it’s all about
It all starts with the story of an abandoned cat named Kattholt. She was rescued from the streets of Reykjavik. When they took her to a shelter for stray cats, they realized she was pregnant. In total, she had 5 kittens. But amazingly, they were all adopted (including the mother) by the same family. When the kittens were big enough, the mother “insisted” they leave.
The association brought all the kittens back together to see how they had progressed. Then, they created this reality series while they waited for someone to decide to take them home. The names of these kittens are Por, Bubbi, Vigdís, Katla, and Hekla. We can watch them live their lives while they have a great time in their gigantic dollhouse.
Without a doubt, Keeping Up With The Kattarshians revolutionized social networks, not just in Iceland, but also around the world. You just have to search for the “Live” footage to see what the kittens have gotten up to this time.
