Meet the kittens, pigs and bird of Puppy Bowl

This Sunday, puppies from shelters and rescue groups will take the field for Animal Planet’s eighth annual Puppy Bowl. (Meet some of our favorite players!)

Animal Care and Control of NYC brought the 20 Kitten Halftime cats.

But they won’t be the only Petfinder alumni there. Five piggy pep squad members will squeal their delight, 20 kittens will play during halftime and Meep the Cockatiel will “tweet” the game from the stadium. (Follow @meepthebird on Twitter.)

Can’t wait for Sunday? After the jump: a sneak preview of Puppy Bowl’s kittens, pigs and bird — some of whom are still adoptable!
