The Kitten Summer Games 2016 Are Coming August 5th!
27 July, 2016
While all the athletes are getting ready to compete in the summer games of 2016, the first ever Kitten Summer Games, on Hallmark Channel, is getting a leaping start. The Kitten Summer games are a way to see our adorable felines compete in the different Olympic events while promoting adoption. What could be cuter!
Hallmark was so successful with the Kitten Bowl that they started the Kitten Summer Games!
Hallmark Channel will be debuting the Kitten Summer Games at the same time as the Olympics’ opening ceremony. More than 90 felines will compete in a series of gymnastics, tennis, wrestling, volleyball, and track and field events, and, don’t you worry, the cuteness overload it ready! In an effort to bring awareness and adopt more kittens, the games will be fun with the goal of finding these kittens homes.
The Kitten Bowl was so successful with helping kittens from high-kill animal shelters get adopted that the Hallmark Channel is planning to premiere Kitten Summer Games on the network in summer 2016.
North Shore Animal League and Last Hope Animal Rescue are sponsoring the event
Ninety super sporty cats from North Shore Animal League America and Last Hope Animal Rescue are getting ready to play in the Hallmark Channel’s inaugural Kitten Summer Games.
The cat-letes will be competing in gymnastics events, a “de-cat-hlon,” tennis, wrestling and volleyball matches.
There will be big competitors in the Summer Games
Like the actual Olympics, the games will include big-name competitors like Cat Lewis, Hissing Bolt, Nadia Come N’ Scratch Me, and Pawdre Ag-Hissy. If you understood even half those references, a sporting event centered on cats may be right up your alley.
Beth Stern, actress, author, animal rights activist, and wife of Howard Stern, will serve as the host of Kitten Summer Games, which is designed to promote feline adoption. Mark your calendar and let the feline games begin!
