Millions have been gripped by boxsets and have devoured documentaries over the past year. And it turns out, humans weren’t alone. While viewers settled down to watch, our beloved four-legged friends were equally enamoured.
With eyes glued to the likes of Our Planet, Seaspiracy and Springwatch, to The Game Changers and Greta Thunberg, over 500 cat lovers from across the country have submitted snaps of their engrossed eco warriors entranced in environmental and nature programmes
The hiss-terical pictures were compiled by sustainable cat litter brand Natusan, as part of a competition to find the country’s most eco-minded moggies captivated by programmes around protecting the planet and curbing climate change.
Rachel Andre, Director of Natusan said “After a tumultuous year of feeling helpless, many of us have turned to our televisions, not only for entertainment, but also inspiration – looking for ways we can make a difference in the world and play our part to improve our environmental footprint. With sustainability at the heart of Natusan, we wanted to find fervent felines who are as passionate about the planet as we are. Cats are highly visual creatures that love visual stimulation – so it’s no wonder our cats are captivated by television programmes which show the natural world.”
Kiki Tsoulouhopoulos, from Cheshire, says her cats Esme and Ziggy are engrossed when watching wildlife programmes – so much so that nothing can distract them! Kiki won an entire year’s supply of Natusan’s 100% natural and biodegradable cat litter.
Victoria Winchester, 37, from Swansea, says her five-month-old kitten Delilah loves to playfully paw at the big cats on screen whilst watching David Attenborough’s documentary The Year Earth Changed – going as far to knock the iPad over!
Joe Tipton, 32, also has another David ‘Cat’tenborough’ feline fan, and admits he is too scared to check the television for scratches, as his one-year-old moggie, Ziggy gets so excited watching Our Planet – and also insists on watching from on top of the television.
Ramona and Beezus, the domestic shorthair cats, give their undivided attention to the television when watching Dancing With Birds, says Cathryn Harvey, 25. They are also devoted to the David Attenborough series, Planet Earth.
Olly, the domestic shorthair cat from Cardiff, spends his days ‘chattering’ peacefully to parakeets which he watches on the television, says Fran Parsons, 68. Mesmerised by the movement of the birds and their song, Olly often gently paws at the screen too.
Not only is The Lion King a favourite film with us humans – but it turns out that our feline friends are also fond of the Disney classic too – finding the big cats captivating. Kelly Flood, 43, from Whitley Bay, says her black tabby cat Midnight is so engrossed by Mufasa that he often falls off the sofa when watching.
