Puppy Bowl and Kitty Halftime Show

The only turnovers you'll see in this game are four-legged furballs flopping on their backs so a ref can pet their tummy. It's doubtful Ray Rice will do that at the Super Bowl. But it's par for the canine course during Puppy Bowl IX. Also featured -- because felines can't be left out -- is the Kitty Halftime Show. Here's a preview of the starting lineup and a look at the kittens who will melt your heart in between halves. The Puppy Bowl airs on Feb. 3 at 3 p.m. on Animal Planet.
