VH1 unveiled four upcoming TV shows focusing on cats for a new programming day called Feline Fridays. These aren’t just any cats, though. They’re sassy cats.

In a statement shared first with Mashable, VH1 President Tom Calderone, explained how the network will milk the Internet’s fascination with cats.

“We know that crossing our proven hit franchises like Mob Wives and Love & Hip Hop with feline characters and storylines will be catnip to our viewers.” he said.

OK, so this is an April Fools’ Day joke, but it is for charity. If you post a photo with on Twitter or Instagram with #VH1CatCasting for any of these fake shows, VH1 will really donate $1 to an animal-support organization.

‘Mob Cats’

‘Love & Hip Hop: Catlanta’

‘Love & Hip Hop: Meow York’

The four shows are spinoffs of the three of the network’s popular series. They’ll be promoted with the hashtag #GetCatty because cats like hashtags as much as they like laser pointers.

Behind the Scratch Board: Kitty Purry is the final fake show. We’re done. Bye.
