If you love love, chaos, and the undeniably sexy energy that was Cats, then boy does Netflix U.K. have a dating show for you. The streamer announced Wednesday its latest foray into dating showsSexy Beasts, which questions: What if my nightmares and the Discovery Channel mated for public entertainment?

The concept (which shockingly isn't original—BCC Three and A&E have both done versions of this show in 2014 and 2015, respectively) asks attractive singles to don professional prosthetics while dating to force them to focus on personality over the fresh hell that is their dating partner's anthropomorphic faces.

Just watch the trailer. But first, hide your pets and phone your therapist.

It all screams The Masked Singer and Love Is Blind (remember when we thought that was wild?) but with the unhinged nature of our post-vax world. It's a hot furry summer, indeed.
