This Parody of 'The Hunger Games' Starring Cats Is Just Purr-fect!

As the saga's latest installment Catching Fire hits theaters on Nov. 22, refresh your memory of the original with this feline-filled spoof

Catniss Everdeen volunteers as tribute!

Even if you are feeling like you need to catch up before Catching Fire hits theaters, here is a way to save yourself some time. Why sit through the two-and-a-half hour flick all over again when you can refresh your memory of The Hunger Games with a laugh-out-loud cat parody?

The video by the Pet Collective uses cardboard to display the scenery, as the felines, portraying the roles of Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne) amongst others, stick their heads through cutout holes with actions narrated by hysterical voice-overs.

Like the original, Catniss makes an impression with fire, overcomes a hoard of bees and outruns dogs alongside Peeta. As part of the cat twists, other participants are sprayed with water and are stabbed with 9 swords (so much for having 9 lives!).

Watch Catniss prove that she isn't a scaredy-cat below:
