Hallmark Channel Rivaling Animal Planet with 'Kitten Bowl'

Step aside Animal Planet, because Hallmark Channel is jumping on the animal Super Bowl bandwagon by launching its very own “Kitten Bowl.”

As most know, Animal Planet is quite popular for its annual “Puppy Bowl,” which showcases dogs and pups of all shapes and sizes “playing” football. What’s great is each of these pooches is available for adoption.

Well, Hallmark is now airing a three-hour kitten special similar to Animal Planet’s. Its description reads, “[The Kitten Bowl is] the greatest feline showdown in cable television history.”

Kittens will show off their obstacle course skills by competing in “hurdles of varying heights, A-frame Alpine Scratchers, tunnels, hoop jumps, and weave poles. Lures, like laser pointers, and toys on a string will be used to get the kittens through the course, but food will not [be] allowed.”

All of the kittens will be from animal shelters and available for adoption.

Hmm . . .  sounds exactly like the “Puppy Bowl.” Animal Planet has released a statement saying, “You’ve GOT to be kitten me! With the record-breaking success of Animal Planet’s ‘Puppy Bowl,’ our famous Kitty Half-Time Show and the huge viewership for our new live Kitten Cam, we’re not surprised by a ‘copy cat.’ After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. We’re just happy that pet adoption is being promoted and more animals are finding their fur-ever homes.”

It’s nice to see Animal Planet has a sense of humor and is happy that more animals have the potential to find safe and loving homes.

During Super Bowl Sunday, the “Kitten Bowl” will air at 12 p.m. EST and show repeat airings at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. The “Puppy Bowl” will air at 3 p.m. EST and will repeat continuously until 3 a.m.

Which one will you tune into?
