That’s easy! Hallmark Channel’s first ever Kitten Bowl, of course!
On Sunday, February 2, 2014 starting at 12pm/11C, Hallmark Channel opens its stadium doors to the greatest feline showdown in cable television history, “Kitten Bowl,” a three-hour Hallmark Channel Original Special featuring the world’s most adorable – and adoptable – kittens in the mother lode of cat agility competition.
The event will be hosted by TV personality and activist Beth Stern, and emceed by John Sterling, the legendary radio voice of the New York Yankees.
Kitten Bowl, in association with North Shore Animal League America, the nation’s largest no-kill shelter and animal adoption organization, will have the most adorable kitten athletes going back-to-back and belly-to-belly at Kitten Stadium in the biggest feline showdown in history.
The competition will consist of a basic obstacle course of 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 allowed.
Cat agility competitions, which are modeled after the equestrian sport of show jumping, normally include rules which state that cats must complete a course in under 270 seconds, completing each obstacle in a prescribed manner. In a typical feline agility contest, a cat would complete between six and fourteen obstacles, with winning cats completing the course in ten seconds or less. In “Kitten Bowl,” however, the competitors are kittens and any form of cuteness is the key to the game!
