Now that this year’s Super Bowl is set to take place in Arizone between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, we can all star to focus on the game that really matters: Kitten Bowl II will premiere on the Hallmark Channel on Super Bowl Sunday! This is the biggest showdown in feline sports, and you don’t want to miss the cuteness!
TV Personality and North Shore Animal League America spokesperson Beth Stern will be back to host the championship game, alongside legendary, iconic radio voice of the New York Yankees John Sterling as the game’s official play-by-play announcer. North Shore Animal League America and Last Hope Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation will provide over 90 adoptable cat-letes to participate in the event. All kittens who are part of the Feline Football League will be adopted out immediately following the games.
The teams will consist of the cutest, agile and, most importantly, adoptable kittens. The kittens will be joined by celebrities and personalities from all facets of the entertainment world as the kittens compete on obstacle courses filled with lures such as yarn balls, lasers, and toys on string.
But you don’t have to wait for Super Bowl Sunday to get in on the fun. You can meet the players, watch live footage from Kitten Bowl Training Camp, get to know the players, and just generally get an advance look at the over the top cuteness that is Kitten Bowl. May the best team win, and let’s hope there won’t be any catnip scandals this year!
We’re not big football fans here, although Ruby has been doing some trash talking about the Seahawks (she says how hard could it be to take down a bird?), but we’ll be watching the Kitten Bowl for sure!
