Watch this Video, Feed Cats in Shelters
Mental Floss ^ | July 18, 2014 | Erin McCarthy

Grumpy Cat, Oskar the Blind Cat (and his buddy Klaus), Hamilton the Hipster Cat, and Nala Cat have teamed up with Friskies on a new song and video, "Cat Summer," in honor of their late friend Colonel Meow. Watch as Oskar enjoys the sprinklers on a slip 'n slide, Hamilton and Nala disrupt a game of croquet, and Grumpy Cat looks grumpy despite sitting in a pot of beautiful flowers—and know that you're doing it for a good cause: For every view through September 1, Friskies will donate one meal of its Grillers dry cat food to shelters across the country.

Charity angle aside, video is worth watching on its own.

If we watch it twice, will they send two meals, or is it one to a customer?

I didn’t see any caveats on the site with regard to this.

Watched. Such cute kitties. My AndyMan, a shelter boy himself, is jealous that those kitties have a sunny summer to enjoy. we are gasping for breath here from smoke from ghastly fires. Hope Smokey the Bear is making videos too.

Oh no, I could not tolerate living with the smoke from forest fires. I have been in Montana when it was burning up and I wanted to leave. Former asthmatic here. I would have trouble living up there because I know fires happen a lot.

I don’t know. FWIW, they seem to be going by YouTube view count.

My cats celebrate summer from the safe confines of indoors, but a good video anyway!

Colorado was on fire the last few summers. Grew tired of the smoke quickly!

I've been in the NW 18 years and have actually had very few days when the smoke was terrible. But last winter was so mild and dry, we knew we were in for a summer of fires. I keep my Honeywell air purifier on and it does a good job.

Take care of that asthma, Ditter

Thank you, dear. I watched it again, and there were a couple of things I missed the first time. It is really cute.
