The highly anticipated four-legged game is hosted by Beth Stern with play-by-play announcers John Sterling (iconic radio voice of the New York Yankees) and Mary Carillo (award-winning reporter, sports analyst and commentator) and special guest appearances by Commissioner Boomer Esiason, Kevin Nealon and many more. This year, the half-time show is cuter than ever when the feline players will be introduced to a team of puppies for the first time.

Additionally, Hallmark partnered with Snaps to launch Kitten Bowl III emojis, available on the Apple Store and Google Play store. The keyboard includes emojis of the cat-letes including Rob Gron-Cat-Ski, Howie Longhair and Coach John Hairball.

Angela Megrey, Vice President, Social Media, Crown Media Family Networks said “the shareable and adorable keyboard emojis not only connects our fans to the Kitten Bowl franchise, but also helps spread increased awareness for ‘Pet Project,’ Hallmark Channel’s advocacy in pet adoption”. We love that it helps spread the word for pet rescue, and the emojis are really fun too!

You can also see cute Cat Center updates like this one by visiting Cat Center! Hallmark Channel’s CAT CENTER shares weekly FFL highlights and updates hosted by John Sterling and Mary Carillo. You can get to know some of the players before the big event on Sunday!

Beyond being super cute, Kitten Bowl also helps spread the word about animal rescue! All adoptable kittens were provided by North Shore Animal League America and Last Hope Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation and have since found forever homes.

We hope that you tune in Sunday!

BEST CAT-HLETE

Move over, Peyton Meowning, Fur-ena Williams, and Tiger Woods – there’s a new kind of athlete in town, one that can run 30 miles per hour, jump up to seven times their own height, and chase a red laser dot like nobody’s business. I’m talking, of course, about cats!

Meow Mix is honoring the year’s most incredible displays of feline physical prowess – and all the irresistible moments that make cat-human bond unique – in their first ever Cat’s Meow Awards.

Over 25,000 cat lovers submitted their remarkably talented kitties for an award, and though choosing was near im-paw-sible, the voting committee of Meow Mix fans ultimately crowned a winner for Best Cat-hlete (as well as the other awards cat-egories, Best Cat Cuddle and Wild Cat Card).

Check out the Cat’s Meow Awards clip recognizing some of the Internet’s greatest four-legged athletes:

These incredible feats really make you ask yourself, “Who needs professional football or soccer when you’ve got a cat?” In fact, that’s why Meow Mix created the Cat’s Meow Awards – to help us appreciate all the little ways cats make our lives GREAT.

If you’ve got a cat worth showing off (and really, who doesn’t?) submit your own irresistible cat moment at irresistiblemoments.com and get a FREE bag of Meow Mix Irresistibles treats, created to make kitty-human bonding time even more delicious. With real meat, a wide variety of flavors, and both soft and crunchy textures, there’s no telling how quickly your cat will sprint, jump, or pounce to get one.

And don’t forget to check back soon to find out the winner of the third Cat’s Meow Awards cat-egory: Wild Cat Card!
