"Talk about the cat's meow!" reads the official press release. Yeah, load up those feline pun guns, because the sheer catness of this story is as tremendous as any you'll read today. Purrfect the Cat, Cee Lo Gree's beloved and extremely photogenic companion on Season Two of The Voice, will be extending her breakout year to include TV commercials as well, lending her credibility to the Meow Mix brand of cat food. Purrfect will be involved in resurrecting the most famous ad jingle in kitty chow: "Meow meow meow meow / Meow meow meow meow / Meow meow meow meow / Meow meow meow meow"
"This is truly the 'perfect' opportunity to introduce the Meow Mix cat food jingle to a whole new audience of pet lovers," said Sue Resnicoff, Director of Cat Food Marketing, Del Monte Foods. "We're so thrilled CeeLo and Purrfect the Cat were up for the job of remixing this classic and memorable jingle." The Persian herself had no comment, but You Know Who was more than willing to respond on her behalf. "Purrfect was thrilled to hear about this new deal with Meow Mix cat food," Cee Lo said of his latest star creation. "That sultry purr of hers is perfect for a modernized remix of the iconic Meow Mix jingle. Watch out cats!"
