Super Bowl for pets: Watch dueling Kitten Bowls in Palm Beach County

Are you ready for some…..Kitten Bowl?

While we love any excuse to show you gratuitous cuteness in the form of cat photos, this time it’s for a good cause.

This weekend, kittens go head to head (and tail to whiskers) in a contest of adorableness.

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control will both host the feline free-for-all, inspired by Hallmark Channel’s Kitten Bowl, as they compete to see which organization can adopt more kittens on Saturday and Sunday.

The teams will take the kitten-sized playing field (any resemblance to a litter box is purely coincidental)  complete with field lines, penalty flags, goal posts and itty bitty footballs. Referees will monitor the inevitable biting and scratching.

Players succumbing to sudden naps will be benched.

Like the moves on the field?  There’s no draft for these players.  Each is a free agent looking for a new home team.

Owners can even name their adoption fees (try that, NFL.)

The Kitten Bowl takes place at both locations Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Or watch the live stream on the Peggy Adams website.

Killing with cuteness appears to be this pair's winning strategy. (Post file photo)
