Last night on The Daily Show, correspondent Aasif Mandvi met with a bird conservationist, along with several cat enthusiasts in an effort to resolve the long standing conflict between "immigrant cats" and "America's birds."
Weighing in on the dispute from the cat's side was "monied lobbyist" Becky Robinson of Alley Cat Allies, along with our friend Layla Morgan Wilde and her cat Odin of Cat Wisdom 101, and rock star cat behaviorist, Jackson Galaxy. Unfortunately, in the end not much was resolved, except that leaving a cat and a bird alone in a room to work out their differences is probably not going to end any wars.
In a bit of TV trivia, I feel fairly confident this is the same kitty who played Liz Lemon's cat, Emily Dickinson, on 30 Rock. [Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C.]
