This vs. That: The Puppy Bowl or the Kitten Bowl?

For all you non-football fans out there, this Sunday's "Big Game"—or "Superb Owl," if you've been keeping up with The Colbert Report this week—isn't between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. It's between cats and dogs! (And one fish, if you're NatGeo Wild.) Which means its time for another round of TV.com's "This vs. That," where we pit two things against one another and you vote on which one should win... in whatever context you choose.

This one's for all the kibble/catnip, folks. 

Will these adorable pups fetch the trophy?

Or will these oh-so-cute kitties claw their way to victory?

That, my friends, is for you to decide:



Show your work in the comments! Bonus points for using cat and dog puns!


The Kitten Bowl airs this Sunday, February 2 at 12pm on the Hallmark Channel. 

The Puppy Bowl airs this Sunday, February 2 at 3pm on Animal Planet. 


PREVIOUSLY: This vs. That: Elementary or Sherlock?


Ed. note: If there's a specific battle you'd like to see, send it via PM to TVcom_editorial, via Twitter to @tvdotcom, or via email to mailbag@tv.com. (And thanks to those of you who've already submitted ideas!)

Puppies rule!
kittens are cute but like @DavidJackson8 said "Kittens can suck it. PUPPIES!

err, I really love both cats and dogs but love dogs more.
Do you see kittens in ads? rare but there are puppies everywhere. I think Wilfred even comment about the war between puppies/dogs and babies...I hate ads but if they have puppies (not babies) then I will watch them at least once.
My favorite cat acted like a dog...that says it all;-)

Kittens can suck it. PUPPIES!

Just look at the banner for this This vs That article. See those two kittens in the back just chillin all lazy-like? Terrible. Just terrible. I mean, sure, that sounds like something I would do... but it still sucks to see. Go puppies.

It must have been a day game, kittens are more active at night. The kittens at least know which team they are on. The puppies are every puppy for themselves, no teamwork there.

Is there anyway for people outside the US to watch either of these Bowls? For some reason these seem to be the least accessible of all US TV shows.

I've been wanting to see a puppies vs. kittens bowl where you literally have cats and dogs together. I wonder if they've ever tried that and would it work?

I wonder why thy haven't tried that!?
They'd just need to file the kitties nails down a little and should be fine. Kittens and puppies in socialized homes should get along fine.

No. Can't do the nail thing without PETA getting uptight. That could get bloody.

The puppy bowl has more traditional action, but the kitten bowl has more surprises and is cuter, so it gets the vote.

Puppies and kittens are both adorable to watch no matter what. Kittens though, do not poop on the playing field.

I'm very sad that the Fish Bowl wasn't included as an option as well.

Either way all those animals are freaking adorable. But if I have to vote for one of the two, I'd have to say the Puppy Bowl because I'm less allergic to dogs.

kitties already fished out whatever was swimming in the fishbowl lolz

This is a significantly more controversial This vs. That than the Sherlock/Elementary battle. I'll be judging you all appropriately.
