So much cuteness — and amazing cat puns! The Kitten Bowl returned for a second year on Feb. 1, and with players named Richard Purrman and Aaron Pawdgers it’s safe to say that the three-hour event was nothing short of amazing. Did you enjoy the Kitten Bowl as much as we did?
Kitten Bowl 2015: Second Annual Game Shows Adorable & Adoptable Felines
The claws have officially come out! This year the cute kitties were divided into two teams for the first game, the Northpole Panthers vs. the Hallmark Channel Hearties.
While the game is definitely action packed at times, the highlight has to be all of the great cat puns that the announcers come up with for their commentary and the cute names that the kittens have. Our favorite names have to be, Joe Montuna and Ryan Fitzcatrick.
During the second quarter, Regis Philbin joined the announcers in the booth to call the game with Mario Lopez and Kevin Nealon who were both on hand to reveal how the participating kittens can be adopted.
At the end of the first playoff game, the Hearties took home the victory with a 58 to 24 win over the Panthers and will be moving on to the Championship game.
The second playoff game was between the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Mountain Lions vs. the Good Witch Wildcats. After a claw biting game, The Wildcats walked away with the win with a score of 36 to 25.

Finally it was time for the championship game between the Good Witch Wildcats vs the Hallmark Channel Hearties.
The Wildcats started strong scoring several touchdowns early on in the game, but the Hearties were not going down without a fight! In the end it came down to an overtime match where both teams had a chance to show off their cuteness to decide the ultimate winner.
After plenty of cuteness, the Good Witch Wildcats claimed victory thanks to Joe Montuna‘s signature look — so adorable!
