Last August, I was contacted by a British production company making a special for National Geographic called “Wild Side of Cats.” The program looks at the behavior of domestic cats and examines how that compares to big cat behaviour in the wild.
The production company came across a video clip that I shot of Allegra testing the Imperial Cat Scratch ‘n Shapes Sofa Scratcher Chaise. I always knew Allegra was a world-champion scratcher, but apparently, her technique in the video clip is so perfect that they ended up using it for the special they’re filming.
The special will air this Sunday, May 19, on Nat Geo Wild at 8pm Eastern. For more information about the show, visit Nat Geo Wild.
Allegra is taking her impending fame in stride. Please direct all requests for interviews to her manager – I mean, loyal servant – aka, yours truly.
Here is the video that will make Allegra a star:
