The kittens (and a few pups) are back for another much-anticipated sporting event. This time it's basketball, just in time for March Madness. This year's games are hosted by animal lover and advocate Beth Ostrosky Stern in association with North Shore Animal League America and Last Hope Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. John Salley, a four-time NBA champion, and Mary Carillo, award-winning reporter and sports commentator, are the official "Meow Madness" announcers for 2017.
Meow Madness airs on the Hallmark Channel on Monday, April 3 at 8 p.m. Don't miss all the action and let the games begin!
This match will surely go down in hiss-tory.
What a paw-some shot from the 3-point line!
"Sorry guys, I got distracted."
"Wait... this isn't a ball of yarn."
"Not in my house."
What an amazing display of tail-ent!
"Who's making bets?"
"Don't just sit there, help meow-t!"
What a paw-ful display of defense!
What a ruff life for this pup!
"You weren't supposed to slam dunk me!"
Is this considered a technical foul?
This pup is certainly a fur-tastic player.
"And that's how I beat Shaq..."
"Ref, I think that's a double dribble!"
"I'm wide open."
"Playing against these kittens is im-paws-ible."
