Dogs, cats, fish -- on (and in) TV

Out: Buffy The Vampire Slayer

In: Fluffy, The Squirrel Slayer

Meow Mix cat food is introducing a new show devoted to programming "by cats, for cats and the humans they tolerate". Hosted by Annabelle and her feline pal Stinky on the Oxygen network, premiering tonight. Look for segments such as "Cat Yoga" and "Squirrel Alert".

On the other side of the coin, NPR's weekly This American Life spoke of an exciting new cable channel on the horizon: The Puppy Channel, which according to their website is just "puppies, puppies, puppies," accompanied by little more than relaxing, instrumental music. Nobody talks at you. In fact, you rarely see people, other than an occasional visit by a little child, or a heartwarming visit to a senior citizen.

Lastly (and least-ly) in our televised menagerie, Fish-TV, which frankly just looks all wet.

(Thanks to Dave for the MeowTV submission!)
