Want to Watch Cute Kitties Play? Of Course You Do!

It's true...cats are curious by nature, always interested in what's happening around them. Humans are curious too and, starting today, can peek in on and interact with the ten cats living in the one-of-a-kind, two-room Friskies®Plus Playhouse! 

Beginning today, for two weeks, fans of the Friskies®Facebook page will have the opportunity to watch all the adoptable cats from MeoowsResQ (a non-profit rescue in Orange County, CA) romp and frolic alongside the built-in pond, Friskies® Games for Cats on the touch-screen floor, unique climbing spaces, and custom aquarium! How cool is that? I had to hide in a secret room to type this post because my cats would be so incredibly jealous if they were reading over my shoulder. They pretend they can't read, but you know... 

Aside from the residence features mentioned above, each day Facebok fans will vote on a new "extra" or engagement feature. These could be anything from a tunnel system to a bubble machine! In addition to simply watching the cats play, which could easily distract me for hours, The Friskies® Facebook community will have an opportunity to interact in real time by way of three mechanical toys. Last year, I tried one of these features via a rescue site in Oregon, and it was amazing. I was thousands of miles from the little kitty on the screen, but was controlling the wand toy and making the cat jump and roll. For rescue cats who don't get a ton of interaction (and humans like me who can't get enough kitty-play-time), this is wonderful!

So, here's what you need to do to participate in the Friskies® Plus™ Playhouse:

  • "Like" the Friskies® Facebook page
  • To watch the cats live, visit the page from 3-6pm EST/noon-3pm PST daily, beginning today and running for two weeks. 
  • If you miss the window of live viewing, visit the Friskies®YouTube channel for highlights.
  • Remember to vote on the "extras" you'd like to see added to the Playhouse.

How fun is this? It's kind of like a Real World for cats, with more fun and less cat fights!
