It boils down to a ploy to unload a lot of Meow Mix on cats. A container of Meow Mix treats recently ended up in the trash here after Cats Working gave it 3 tails down so, for the sake of all concerned, I hope the food is a lot tastier.
Auditions are being held around the country to select 8 cat-human teams to compete on the show. Actor Vincent Pastore, a cat person who was aptly named Big Pussy on The Sopranos, was one of the judges recently in New York.
Every team who auditions takes home free samples and earns a pound of Meow Mix to go to a local animal shelter.
Here are some details on the competition itself, and it will be a miracle if all 8 cats cooperate.
They’ve made the chances of anyone getting the $1 million grand prize practically nil because it will take pure luck for a cat and human to pick out two random bags of Meow Mix containing identical winning cards.
Otherwise, the teams who win, place, and show will receive $25,000, $15,000, and $10,000, with an additional 10 percent each going to local cat-related charities (the only good thing coming out of all this). The winning cats will also get stuck with… uh, win… a year’s supply of new Meow Mix® Wholesome Goodness™ cat food.
The Meow Mix® Game Show airs on GSN November 15 at 8 p.m. Don’t miss it.
