Earlier this month, The Hallmark Channel announced that it will give the beloved Puppy Bowl some four-legged competition by airing the first Kitten Bowl on Super Bowl Sunday next February. In the past, cats have served as halftime entertainment at the Puppy Bowl, but now they will have their own spotlight. Great news for feline fans.
Here at JoyHog, we believe there’s room for a Pig Bowl.
Anyway, Sue Manning of the Associated Press, wrote about the Super cats and dogs… and we’d like to share:
It’s a Super Bowl matchup for the ages: cats vs. dogs.
The Puppy Bowl, a fixture on Animal Planet during the Super Bowl for nearly a decade, will have new competition next year from the Kitten Bowl, the Hallmark Channel announced this month.
“We would like to own the day,” said Bill Abbott, president and CEO of Crown Media Family Networks, which is home to the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.
“Copycats,” chided Animal Planet in a statement.
Win or lose in the ratings, all the animals stand to benefit. Hallmark will use between 50 and 100 kittens from animal shelters around the country, and Abbott vowed to place each one in a home.
