Maybe this will help entertain?

I had one cat who would jump up and watch if I was flipping through channels and found an animal documentary. Her brother would come running to the tv if I flipped past...Teletubbies! (No joke.) He'd watch the whole show!

Has anyone purchased this? I'm curious if it really works. If it does, its a lot easier than rearranging the furniture to entertain them.

I haven't bought these particular videos, but I purchased a very similar one called "Video Catnip" years ago. The cats love it! My oldest is a little jaded now and watches it only a bit since she seems to know she can't actually catch the birds and squirrels she sees! I also bought a DVD, "The Kitty Show Video Toy" which shows fluttering moths and insects. Not as big a hit as the "catnip" video, but one of my cats is partial to bugs and can't get enough of it. It's a hoot watching the cats watching these videos! Perfect for a snowy day like today...

That is TOO COOL! Do the videos have bird/squirrel, etc. sounds too?

Another feline Teletubbies freak! I can't believe it. When Jamie was a kitten, he watched the Teletubbies every day, and seemed to know it was "time" for his show. I always thought it was the bunnies that attracted him. I taped "Walking with Dinosaurs" for him, because that was/is another favorite.
The "Mewvies" look interesting.

It seems to me that it depends on your cat. My kitten may be interested in it, my boyfriend's cats not so much. My question is if they are not interested in the tv without the video, then why would they be interested when the video's on. You could get the same affect by letting them look outside, or turning on a nature show. I wouldn't waste your money.

Hi Rockcat - Yes, the videos come complete with nature sounds - birds chirping, squirrels nibbling on nuts, etc. The videos get most cats' attention because they zero in on the animals/birds - the camera follows the movement and along with the audio, it's pretty irresistable to most cats. My cats aren't much interested in regular TV (with the exception of nature programs and sports like basketball!) but the videos grab them every time. I've had the "Video Catnip" for years now, and it's been well worth the $16 for the entertainment it's provided. It's especially great for indoor-only kitties, and cats who live in apartments.

Well, Oliver & Tri are indoor-only apartment kitties. The videos sound like great birthday gifts!!! Thanks for the info!

I know this an old string but I have to tell you I read about Teletubbies and tivoed it for my kittens, they are Teletubbies wackos. They run to the TV when they hear the music. I am amazed I want to show people but they are stll stranger shy so I am ging to videotape it. If you have new kittens try ths show for them.

I don't have that one, but my guys do have a kitty DVD, called 'birds gone wild' - it's all footage of birds. Meeko and Phineas absolutely love it (as soon as I turn it on, they come running, and they're glued to the TV, hopping up and trying to swat and chase the birds, until it's over), Esmeralda has some interest in it (she'll watch for a few minutes, wander off, then return for a few more minutes, etc.) and Henry has absolutely no interest in it, so I guess it does depend on the individual cat whether or not it 'works', but it definitely does for some (the pet supply store where I bought mine told me I could return it if my cats didn't like it).
