Howard Stern may have been labeled a “shock jock” for his blunt and often controversial style, but it looks like the world-famous radio personality, television host and actor may have a soft spot that has long gone under the radar.

While discussing the Hallmark Channel’s upcoming “Kitten Bowl,” Beth Stern revealed that she and her husband have fostered a grand total of fifty cats in their own home since June, 2013.

And the feline-friendly couple didn’t stop at simply giving the cats a warm place to stay; Howard and Beth have permanently adopted five of the animals they fostered in their home – including a blind cat named Bella and the gigantic, 22-pound feline they call Leon Bear. While he may be a black cat, the Sterns insist that Leon Bear has only had a positive effect on the household. “He only brought our family good luck,” Beth Stern said, “so I say black cats are good luck.”

This Superbowl Sunday, Beth Stern will be hosting the Hallmark Channel’s first annual “Kitten Bowl.” The event will feature several adorable kittens who are up for adoption as well as the organizations who are helping them find new homes. Beth said “[i]t’s a celebration of kittens. We’re hoping to inspire people. Go to your local shelter and give one of these guys a home.”

The “Kitten Bowl” will air on the Hallmark Channel this Sunday, February second, at 12:00 pm EST.
