Meet the Adorable Cat-hletes of the Feline Olympics | Kitten Summer Games 2016

Purrty Paw-some Cat-hletes!

What’s more lovable about the Kitten Summer Games 2016 is all the competitors are sheltered kittens. These ex-abandoned cute furry balls were rescued by North Shore Animal League America. The group helps to connect these kittens to an adoptive family.

Banking on the success of the Kitten Bowls, Hallmark Channel decided to hold a feline spoof the Olympics. Its goal is to raise animal rights, adoption and shelter awareness. Beth Stern, who is North Shore’s goodwill ambassador will also be playing an important role in this pun-filled event.

 

Here are the top cat-hletes and their coaches!

Pounce De Leon is another tough coach for the volleyball team. He does not rely on his cat’s nine lives and insists that practice is the key to his team’s success.

 

Check out Olympians Nadia Come-N-Scratch Me, Hissimone Biles and others as they compete in the gymnastics during the Kitten Summer Games! Thanks to Kitten Bowl for this video:

There was a lot of crazy cat fights during the Kitten Summer Games 2016. It can’t be helped that some did cat naps in the middle of their competition. Still, some cats really outshined the others with their purr-fect cat-hletic skills in the scratch-free gymnasium.

It is the organizers hope that after the event you would want to take one of these cute kitties back home.

By the way, catcalling is allowed in the Kitten Summer Games 2016!
