NEW YORK – You may be used to having to battle your spouse for control of the remote — but soon you might have to fight your pet.
A long line of hopeful humans showed up at Chelsea Piers in New York City yesterday to try out for a gig on Meow TV — a new cable show aimed at an audience of cats.
Produced by (who else?) the Meow Mix cat food company, the series — set to air in the fall — will feature tweeting birds and bouncing balls along with tips on how to care for cats, for the owners who'll presumably be watching, too.
Would-be Meow TV anchor Colin Sygrove, 7, says he thinks the show should be packed with action for its feline viewers.
"Like mice chasing around, and a cat trying to get it," he suggested.
David Blanc, a 24-year-old actor whose cat, Coffee, likes to watch WWF wrestling, The Real World and the Cartoon Network, says he has plenty to offer a feline audience.
"I have a deep voice, which I think cats like," he said. "You might say I have animal magnetism."
