Icelandic Cat Reality Show – level 3

08-07-2021 15:00

‘Keeping Up with the Kattasians’ is an Icelandic reality show that follows the lives of some kittens. The set is a large doll house with many cameras so viewers can follow the ‘cat-athleticism’ for many hours a day.

The Icelandic Cat Protection Society helped create the show. The idea is that four rescue kittens move into the house for 3 to 4 weeks at a time, and so far, the show has been a ‘pawsitive’ success. Many of the kittens have been re-homed and as each one is adopted, another homeless kitten takes its place.

Difficult words: cat-athleticism (a combination of the words ‘cat’ and ‘athleticism’ because kittens are very fast and athletic), ‘pawsitive(a combination of the words ‘paws’ and ‘positive’ because cats have paws and it is positive that the kittens are getting new homes), re-home (move to a new home).
