It was easily the silliest story of late last week, but an undeniably cute one nonetheless when iiNet employees spent their spare time setting up a camera pointing at a Perth cat rescue shelter. It’s a story which has two potentially great endings as well.
Firstly, there’s the good news that the existence of #Kittycam led to a record 59 animal adoptions at Cat Haven over the weekend. Given what usually has to happen to animals in pet shelters nationwide, that’s a solid result as long as the animals are sensibly looked after.*
Equally excellent, in a release iiNet said it was looking into ways to make #KittyCam a permanent installation, which means the next time I’m stressed out at work (give it, say, five minutes or so) I may be able to get a dose of kitteny goodness. [iiNet]
*Cats are natural predators, and introduced predators at that; I’m a cat person, but my cats live indoors, because I like Australian native wildlife too…
