Housecat Housecall is a weekly 30-minute television program that aired on Animal Planet in the United States and Australia. The show was broadcast from June 7, 2008 to July 10, 2010. It was hosted by veterinarian Katrina Warren.

Format[edit]

In each episode, people emailed Dr. Warren videos about the problems they had with their cats. Dr. Warren then (in seasons 1 and 2) consulted her colleagues and devised a plan of action. She then visited the people with cat problems at their homes, met their cats, discussed the problems, and offered solutions. She came back a few days later and checked to see if her suggestions worked. Usually they did, and the problems were solved. The show also contained a segment called "Dr. Kat's Corner" in which she gave general cat care advice.
