On TV

Critic's pick: The miniseries opens with Julius Caesar (Jeremy Sisto) young and idealistic - he has married the daughter of a populist leader and suddenly Rome has a dictator. It's Sulla (the late Richard Harris). Only the intervention of Pompey (Chris Noth, left) saves Caesar. Caesar, 8 p.m., TNT, repeats 10 p.m. and midnight, concludes Monday.

• This miniseries is a solid look at the JonBenet Ramsey murder case. Perfect Murder, Perfect Town, 9 p.m., Channel 12, concludes Wednesday.

The goods

Cat control: Cats are usually easy to litter box-train. But sometimes, well, they aren't. That's where Cat Attract enters the picture. It's a litter blended with a natural herb that draws cats to the box. And that's not all: Once there, kitty will find the litter's texture and size are formulated to encourage use. It's sold at pet stores all over the place, $10.99 to $15.99.
