Big game, small kittens


Super Bowl visitors to Minneapolis are pretty aware that everything seems to be costing a lot of money.

Businesses are taking advantage of the well-off clientele in town, because they can afford to make the trip.

All week there was one Super Bowl exhibit that drew more crowds than most and was also free to attend!

People were standing in line to see the stray kittens brought here for the Kitten Bowl, which is the feature of the Hallmark Channel, set to air on Sunday afternoon before the Super Bowl.

The kittens were kept inside the Dayton's Project Building where they were able to relax in the locker room and get ready for the big play -- the "Tail Mary."  

They were also able to roam around the field itself, often jumping up on the glass or the stadium to try to get out.

"This is bigger than the actual Super Bowl. The cats are unpredictable," said Rodney Peete, Kitten Bowl Play-by-Play Announcer. "The kittens are so beautiful. I can't say that about all offensive lineman. They're not beautiful. The kittens are beautiful so you're rooting for everybody."

The crowds of moms, dads and kids, of course, just wanted to get a glimpse of the kittens and dream about taking one home.

The whole goal of the exhibit was to encourage adoption of stray cats and kittens.
