How do we keep our HDTV safe from our cat?

We are ready to buy an HDTV. We need help figuring out how to anchor it -- not to the wall, but down to the shelf where it will live.

We have built-in bookshelves with a special nook for a TV. The TV will sit on a slider (it pulls out and rotates, I can't think of a better term for it, sorry). We want to anchor it down so that our cat, who enjoys testing gravity and is stronger than he looks, isn't able to get behind it and knock it off.
I know there are kits to anchor flat screens to the wall, but I've googled around a bit and haven't found anything that tells me if there are kits to anchor these puppies down. Are there? Can you give me some suggested search terms to use to find out about them?
Alternatively, do you have any tips, tricks, or hacks that will help keep our TV safe from our bloody-minded pet?
I'll put up a pic of the cat as soon as I can find one. In the meantime, help?
