In this episode

  • How much does Sachi know about cats in scripted television comedy since 2013? We find out in today’s Cat Quiz!
  • [Cat Quiz Spoiler] Here’s the SNL sketch from question 1.
  • [Cat Quiz Spoiler] Here’s the cat poster sketch from question 4.
  • There’s girl code, and there’s guy code, but is there… cat code? Either way, consent is important!
  • Sachi explains her feminist awakening to cats. (Longtime listeners will recall that in episode 5 we determined that cats are inherently opposed to the patriarchy.)
  • I won’t lie, things take an emotional turn as Sachi tells us about Corn’s sudden death last summer, how that affected Magoo, and why she and her husband decided to adopt a new kitten (Pudding) the very next day.
  • Plus! Photo ops for cats with food names, letting cats absorb tears and a frankly disturbing anecdote about Magoo suckling—EXCLUSIVE video below!
