This is probably the worst sequel ever made. Its crappiness partly stems from how really good the original ID4 movie was – the chasm between the first and second in this franchise is wide enough to land a cat on the moon in. The tagline is, “We had twenty years to prepare.” The revised tagline needs to include, “and yet we threw a bunch of cutting room floor footage together over the long weekend and called the results a movie.”
Here’s what the kitties have to say:
Baker — My humans were laughing so hard at this parody that I had trouble sleeping through it. Wait, what? It wasn’t meant to be a parody? Two paws way, way down!
Lance — I had to go into the other room. It was fine at first, but there was this part with a dog in it and all that yapping got on my nerves. Two paws enthusiastically down.
Butters (our intern Kitty Meowvie Critic) — There were things moving on the screen. Whizzy lights and Jeff Goldblum. I can’t think of a better way to spend Saturday night with my humans. I can’t count, but I raise all my paws and even my tail to this masterpiece of whizzy things.
This Eid holiday, Spot the Kitty took a kitty-spotting trip to Sri Lanka.
Kitty spotting is not easy in Sri Lanka, as there are so many places for a kitty to hide in this lushly forested country.
Our first kitty was spotted in the town of Kegalle, home of the Kurulu-Kele Bird Sanctuary. Can you find him in this picture?
Can you spot the Kegalle kitty?
If you had difficulty finding this kitty, here’s a close-up:
Kegalle kitty spotted!!
The next kitty we spotted was in Pinnawala, home of the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage. She actually spotted us before we spotted her, and she joined us for lunch, so I wasn’t able to get a photo of her hiding. Here’s a shot of me holding the sweet little Pinnawala kitty:
This kitty in Pinnawala likes egg sandwich and broiled fish.
Do your cats listen to mewsic? Do they dance with you when you have a house party? Do you have little cat iPods for them? If you answered “no” to all of these questions, it might be because cats have different musical tastes than their humans.
The website www.musicforcats.com claims that they are developing music that is scientifically composed to appeal to cats. Throughout history, according to Music for Cats, music has been composed by humans for humans, but this composer has studied the sounds that appeal to cats and produced music that stimulates cats’ emotions.
The music is available for purchase on the website , but before we forked out $15.00 for the digital download of “Album 1”, we thought we’d give the kitties a listen.
Here is the reaction to “Music for Cats” at Spot the Kitty HQ:
Baker seems rather nonpussed, but Lance is somewhat curious as to where the singing cat might be found.

Marmalade Endures Cone of Shame

Back in February, Cole and Marmalade’s human reported that Marmalade was strapped into an inflatable cone of shame. It seems that Marm let curiosity get the better of him and ended up with a scratched eye. Luckily, Marmalade’s humans noticed his condition straight away. Unluckily, Marm was forced to not only wear a cone of shame, but to endure eye drops twice a day for two weeks!
Read all the grisly details of Marmalade’s misadventure on their website, here.

Click to find out more about the original zombie movie from IMDb!
George Romero and John Russo were definitely pioneers in Hollywood. Produced in 1968, “Night of the Living Dead” was the first ever zombie movie. Nearly fifty years later, The Walking Dead is one of the most popular shows on television, continuing the story of flesh-eating, slow-moving undead originally conceived by Romero and Russo. Not only do the “Night of the Living Dead” zombies have staying power, but the film was filled with Hollywood firsts: an African American hero doing his best to save the white heroine, a fully nude zombie, a young girl zombie eating her parents… if anybody didn’t run out of the theater screaming in 1968, I’ll eat my pizza!
Baker: “This movie made my fur stand on end! Two paws up!”
Lance: “Humans should not be allowed to watch Night of the Living Dead while petting their kitties. The excitement lead to faster and faster scritching, and made it difficult to sleep. But I did get a pretty good head massage out of it, so two paws up!”
If you don’t think you can stomach all ninety-six minutes of fear and gore, Baker and Lance have produced their slightly tamer, definitely shorter version: “Night of the Mewing Dead.” Click to watch it on YouTube.

CSI is an ingenious show that has run on CBS for fifteen years. It has three spin-offs and has given countless aspiring actors opportunities to show their stuff. CSI may not always be realistic (“Can you bring that up a little?”) but it is always entertaining to try to solve the crime along with the team. On September 27th, CSI shared their series finale, bringing back some of their best-loved cast members for an intense two-hour search for the bombers of a Las Vegas casino.
Our kitties enjoyed CSI Immortality so much that they decided to dedicated this week’s Spot the Kitty Presents to their own rendition of the show.
Baker: “It was a lot of fun to pretend to work with my partner to solve a crime. Of course in the end, we knew the dog did it. Spot the Kitty Studios were generous enough to provide some very high-tech equipment for this particular show, like a laptop, and a camera.”
Lance: “I don’t know why I always have to play the girl. I drew inspiration from Sara Sidle. Sara’s endearing habit of always explaining things that are already somewhat obvious makes the show easier to follow for those of us whose brains are the sizes of walnuts. So I guess in this instance, there was a certain element of challenge to bringing one of my favourite characters to life under my own interpretation.”
Gone Girl is based on a best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn. She wrote the screenplay, too, so unusually for movies based on novels, you don’t come away from this one saying, “The book was better.” Unless you’re a real stickler for booksarealwaysbetterism, in which case, don’t even bother watching movies, you nerd!
Baker — My human watched Gone Girl on an airplane, while I was crammed in my small carrier under the seat in front of her. I was fine, by the way. Don’t worry about me.
Lance — Me too.
For meowvie buffs, Baker and Lance have produced their own version of this film, Gone Cat. You can watch it here:
