The local news site Nútíminn has teamed up with humane society Kattavinafélagið (“The cat-friendship society”) to produce a webcast to raise awareness of stray cats and help find adopted homes for homeless cats. The series titled “Keeping up with the Kattarshians” tracks four nine week old kittens, Guðni, Stubbur, Briet and Ronja who are living in a small dollhouse.

The four kittens were discovered along with their mother in an industrial area in Reykjavík. The family was taken to the shelter Kattholt, where the kittens and their mother were given appropriate care before the kittens moved out to start their new career as reality-TV stars.

One of the kittens, Stubbur (“Shorty”), had suffered a serious injury to his tail at the house where the litter was found. The veterinarian therefore had to amputate a part of the tail. Despite his injury Guðni has become the pack leader, Nútíminn reports.

Nútíminn assures its readers that the kitten home as well as the entire project was reviewed and approved by the Icelandic Humane Society, as well as all appropriate public animal welfare authorities and veterinarians.

One of the stars has already been adopted, Nútíminn reports, and we have no doubt that the other two will soon find a home!
