What is Kitten Bowl About?
‘Kitten Bowl’ is an annual event featuring lively, agile and smart kittens who compete with each other in a football game at Hallmark Stadium. Full of vigor and mischief, the kittens log heads at the game of gridiron and score goals, tackle their opponent, and are also penalized for fouls and receive penalties for display of violence.
Not just that, the players undergo training sessions and are also supplied high energy meals to keep their spirit up. We also see small puppies as cheerleaders. ‘Kitten Bowl’ is a team effort of Hallmark and one of the best shelter organizations in America, Animal League. You can readily adopt a feline from their shelter. In case you are not able to adopt, you can volunteer or donate funds for the welfare of the kittens.
In case you don’t know, kitten factories, also known as kitten mills, exist in many places across the globe. The kitten mills are places where kittens are kept for breeding in unhygienic and detrimental conditions, where many are crammed in a box/cage with feces on the floor, overflowing litter boxes, infected eyes, matted fur, etc. It is not only unfavorable, but can also cause death. Therefore, the show asks people to adopt from shelters and never ever shop.
