There's the Super Bowl. And then there's the Su-purrr Bowl.

If you don't know your Cowboys from your catnip, we're going to assume you're just as excited as we are for this year's Kitten Bowl, which airs Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015, on the Hallmark Channel (and is hosted by animal advocate and North Shore Animal League America spokesperson Beth Stern). Basically, who would you rather root for: more than 90 adorable and adoptable rescue kittens or a bunch of sweaty guys?

Terminally Ill Man Seeks Home for Beloved Cat

Terminally Ill Man Seeks Home for Beloved Cat

Originally posted 09/03/2014 02:30PM

Labor Day weekend turned into a labor of love for one terminally ill Utah man.

He walked into the Humane Society of Utah with his best friend of 13 years – a cat named Nefertiti – and did something that would break any pet owner's heart: He gave her up.

The man, whose name is being withheld by the shelter, told a rescue worker he was dying and that his biggest fear was passing away in his home and leaving the cat uncared for, be it several days or more.

Somebody deserves free pizza for life.

Because this idea – the one we're sure some people laughed off when it was blurted out in a brainstorming session, about cats starring in Pizza Hut Japan's new ad campaign – is now the stuff of legend.

In one of the new spots available on YouTube (and there are many more should you need a break today!), a group of seemingly annoyed cats sit at a table wearing Pizza Hut hats, waiting for their pizza delivery.

The Daily Treat: See Why This Sad-Looking Cat Makes Us So Happy

Originally posted 08/19/2014 07:10PM

There are lots of things to be sad about these days (example: We're not having Ryan Gosling's baby) but Pixie the cat isn't bothered by any of them.

This 2-year-old feline, who resides in the U.K., has the eyes of a girl who just spent hours crying over a broken heart. But she's really as happy as a mid-nap cat – meaning her looks are purely for the benefit of others, like us.

"She's happy most of the time," the Persian cat's owner, Sophie Batt, says in an interview with the U.K. Daily Mail. "She's always playing or eating."

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Boots, a handsome 6-year-old tabby who is destined to be an Instagram star.

This adorable guy has been at the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover, New Jersey, for quite a while after being plucked from an overcrowded shelter – and no one can figure out why.

"He is incredible: laid-back, friendly, affectionate, and likes other cats. He gives the best headbutts and loves to get massages," says development coordinator Abby Berenbak. "He has a fan following at the shelter where he is adored by the masses."

'We Are the World' Feline Style: Internet Celebri-Cats Band Together to Save the Tigers (VIDEO)

Originally posted 07/29/2014 03:00PM

It's International Tiger Day, and some very special Internet stars are here to meow all about it.

Lil Bub, Princess Monster Truck, Pudge and more famous web moggies recently joined up with Greenpeace to create the video "Cats Save Tigers." Think of it as a "We Are the World" with more yowling.

In the clip, the kitties explain (with a little help from captions) that while tigers are the largest felines in the world, their numbers are rapidly declining. There are only 3,000 tigers left on Earth today, a depressing figure these cats hope to change.
