Oh my gosh! I forgot all about this! I hope it's not too late. 50 bucks is 50 bucks.

Even Chandler couldn't distract the kitten for long.

When I just now returned to my computer, Whiskers was sitting in my chair with her attention focus on the screen where the aquarium was running.

I tried emailing the official tech support, but the email that was on the contest page isn't working. Is it officially still going?

Nice one Patrick. Wonder if an older cat could be fooled

EDIT: Saw other vids with old cats, apparently any cat
can be fooled...

That happened to me too. Don't fret. Someone from Prolific will see this and get back to us reasonably soon.

The email should be working now.
I don't know the status of the contest.
It was meant to be catlovers at prolific com, so both catlover and catlovers should work.

Patrick just made an easy $50! With his “Stray Cat Strut” kitty video on YouTube.
You can do it too! Just post your cat video to YouTube and add our website address, www.SereneScreen.com. We will give you $50. How easy is that?
Does your cat swat the screen? You get $100!
Thanks Patrick!"

Sweet! Now, how about those cookies?

I never really liked that cat anyways, hes really fat and only knows how to eat and bite people. Also, the conterst only stated that it had to be a cat and the screensaver, people just assumed that the cat had to be interested.

I think I read once that not all cats can see a television/monitor screen due to some genetic differences. If I remember correctly cats that see the screen have or lack a rod or something. I know, my information is vague. I’ll see if I can find it on the web but I am sure it was in a book.
