ICELAND’S new reality TV show could be the purr-fect guilty pleasure TV.
Rather than focusing on socialites or D-list celebrities, this show is an adorable livestream of kittens going about their daily business.
Filmed on three GoPro cameras, you can watch the foursome padding about their doll-house. Like the hugely successful US reality show, the kittens are dubbed the Catdashians (the Kattarshians in Icelandic)
As well as being ridiculously cute, there’s a great purpose to the show. All of the cats are orphans, who are staying in the house for 3-4 weeks until they’re adopted by someone. Once the furry critters have found a new forever home, more homeless kittens then take their place.
The show was created in collaboration with The Icelandic Cat Protection Society who help take care of the kittens, making sure they get enough food, love and human contact.
The show has become an unexpected sleeper hit, with all four of the original kittens being adopted in the first week thanks to the huge popularity of the livestream.
The show says of its success: “Their characteristics, actions and relationships are what make this show such a success. In its first 24 hours the show generated approximately 3,000 shares (Iceland’s population is 300 thousand) and Icelanders have turned to social media regarding their adoration.”
What do you think – a reality show too far, or the perfect feel-good viewing? Let’s see if the ideas comes to the UK…
