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 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!

Do you dress up your pet for Halloween?

Best Friends was curious about people dressing up their pets for Halloween, so they did a survey. More than 6,000 people responded, and the results are now in a fun video:

We love a cute costumed pet, especially if your pet enjoys it too! Not all pets do though, but if you happen to fall into the “yes, I dress up my pet category,” you may enjoy the online photo gallery, which you can check out here. Anyone can submit photos of their own pups by uploading them directly to the gallery or by using #BFHowloween on Twitter or Instagram.

Best Friends Halloween

Happy haunting!

Adorable baby aardvark

A newborn aardvark at Busch Gardens® Tampa is stealing the hearts of its caretakers, who are helping bottle feed the baby, which they characterize as unusual looking but adorable.

The baby aardvark was born Sept. 18, 2015. It is healthy and is currently being cared for by its mother Izzy. While mother Izzy forages at night, the Busch Gardens animal care team bottle feeds the baby and monitors its health through routine check-ups.

2015_BUSCH_GARDENS_TAMPA_BABY_AARDVARK_06This is Busch Gardens’ fifth successful aardvark birth and is part of the park’s participation in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan.

Newborn aardvarks are sometimes referred to as “ugly cute” with elongated noses, large floppy ears and hairless, wrinkly skin. After two weeks, the folds of skin disappear and, around three weeks, the ears will begin to stand upright.

The baby’s sex will be determined within the next few weeks, along with the team’s decision on a name.

The mother and baby are currently behind-the-scenes at Busch Gardens. The baby will be part of Busch Gardens’ animal ambassador program, helping to educate guests about this species and their counterparts in the wild. Get the first look at the baby aardvark on Busch Gardens’ YouTube channel.
