Tues­day Jo Brand’s Cats And Kit­tens 8pm, Five

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - TELEVISION & RADIO -

IF you like Jo Brand (check) and you like cats and kit­tens (dou­ble check), there’s a good chance you’ll like this new se­ries, although there’s also quite a lot here that will leave you de­pressed, an­gry and frus­trated. Made in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the RSPCA, it is, of course, an­other show in the style of Paul O’Grady’s For The Love Of Dogs, as Brand – cat­tier than O’Grady – joins forces with some of the in­spec­tors, vets and vol­un­teers work­ing to res­cue the na­tion’s mog­gies from harm, ne­glect and down­right cru­elty. Tonight, she’s in Liver­pool, where the first in­ci­dent is a fairly sick­en­ing case of aban­don­ment, in­volv­ing two cats left locked in a flat af­ter the owner has moved away. Dis­cov­ered af­ter many days with­out food and wa­ter, it’s touch and go whether they’ll make it. Mean­while, Brand rolls up her sleeves to as­sist the vet op­er­at­ing to save Saba, a poor wee crit­ter who’s fallen from four floors. Else­where, Lola has been stuck up a chim­ney four days, and, look out, there are some su­per cute stray kit­tens jump­ing around.
