Susan Calman finds out why our feline overlords rule cyberspace. In an age where celebrity cats star in films, host talk shows and have lucrative book deals, Susan tries to make her own fur babies into viral internet sensations.

Fellow comedians Vikki Stone, Angela Barnes and Pippa Evans advise Susan on what she should film her cats doing - for maximum comedy value.
