CATastrophes Web Series Makes Us Laugh, and Helps Cats!

If you read Catladyland, I'm pretty sure you've got a great sense of humor and are all for cats finding great homes. Well, my friend Alana Grelyak of the Cat in the Fridge blog has teamed up with filmmaker husband Michael Gabriele to create a new humorous, cat-centric web series called CATastrophes. And Discovery Digital Network's has picked it up! This is good news for humans and cats alike!

CATastrophes stars Alana and actor/comedian Kris Flanagan, and each episode features adoptable cats and a couple who has to deal with comedic situations surrounding the cats. What's so cool about the series -- aside from the fantastically fun storylines and outstanding production quality -- is that these cats in need of homes get extra exposure. Win-win, right?

Kris and Alana are simply CATastrophic.

Between the longer features, Alana and Kris will offer tips on living with cats, showcase harder-to-adopt kitties and even reenact viewers' stories. And within the features are critical messages about important topics like spaying and neutering. The CATastrophes team has really figured out a way to use their medium to entertain and educate the public. And I much prefer their style to the hard-to-watch commercials and videos that feature the darker side of the subject.

Cats in tie = good entertainment.

The episodes will air weekly on and YouTube, and today's new one stars the one and only Lil BUB as a cat who has the power to take humans back in time! Also featured are adoptable cats from Tree House Humane Society in Chicago. I'm a big fan of The BUB, and thoroughly enjoyed this clever story. I'm planning on subscribing to the channel so I don't miss an episode. I'm sure after watching the current episode, you'll want to do the same thing. Plus ... BUB! Here it is:

Catladyland loves to support anything funny that also helps cats. This is exactly what CATastrophes does. I hope you'll join us in enjoying and sharing this fun and thoughtful new project.
