The world has experienced all kinds of cats. We've seen house cats, lolcats and Aristocats -- but since the time of Cleopatra we've never seen kittens thrust into head-to-head football battle. Until now.
Sunday gives us the Kitten Bowl. A chance to see four teams take out their aggression on balls of yarn, stuffed mice and feathers, all while running up and down a small-scale faux football field. That's not all folks, the rosters are chock full of some of the best player name puns you'll ever see.
There's a little more to the event than simply watching cats run around. The event is meant to support animal adoption, with all the competitors being rescued animals.
