Animal Planet has issued a response to the Kitten Bowl news. “You’ve GOT to be kitten me!” reads the statement. “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.”

Next a hamster or a guinea pig show, pretty soon people will ‘forget’ to watch the superbowl itself.

I think it would be hilarious if they fed all the kitties catnip at the start of the program and soaked all their kitty toys in it too.......

Kittens buzzed on catnip, what a hoot that would be....

Even better- I won’t have to deal with Super Bowl traffic in real life if I’m home safe and sound and get my munches the day before!!!

The same. Looks like a lazy weekend ahead, and that’s always good. I haven’t checked in yet, but I bet there’s a list of Honey-dos somewhere around here.

Oh, Baseball Season’s started! Always something on the tube for a few hours daily, now. :^)

It’s beautiful here, but COLD——only around 50.
