Honestly, I’m not a big enough football fan to really get too excited about the Super Bowl. Usually I’ll watch the half-time show and root for the team that is losing in the 4th quarter and get too emotionally invested in the last 15 minutes of the game. This year probably won’t be any different.
But the one thing I do appreciate about the Superbowl is the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. If you don’t know about the Puppy Bowl, allow me to give you the quick and dirty: Puppies. Running around. On Television. Sort of playing football but not really. Cats are the refs. This year, there will be penguin cheerleaders.
If this doesn’t appeal to you then clearly you need to get your priorities together.
In honor of this year’s Puppy Bowl, we want you to decide what is cuter: Celebrities holding puppies or celebrities holding kittens? Personally, I’m on team puppy but what about you? Check out these gifs and vote!
We obviously have to have Ryan Gosling and his dog George. Look at those socks…look at those dog socks.
Blake Lively with a puppy that might actually be a teddy bear.
Channing Tatum feeding a dog with a spoon for whatever reason.
Darren Criss with a very stylin dog.
Ian Somerhalder kissing a puppy.
Miley with a puppy before started to try her hand at twerking
Orlando Bloom. Orlando bloom scratching a dog. Orlando Bloom and a dog. I am crying.
Yeah, I know that all of the 1D guys did this puppy photoshoot but Zayn is the only one that I care about and he’s the cutest anyway so…I think that my sex organs just exploded thanks to this gif.
Zefron is another strong contender up in here.
I’ve never been jealous of Selena’s existence until looking at this gif.
And, of course, we have Queen Bey looking’ fly with this dog.
Anderson Coopers is a total silver fox…who has a lot of experience handling internet famous cats on live television. Rad, honestly.
Ariana Grande getting rejected by a cat. Rude.
Cee Lo showing off some serious Dr. Evil realness, right?
Yeah, okay, Crookshanks is technically a Kneazle but whatever, she and Hermione are still contenders because…because it’s close enough.
Say what you want about Ed Sheeran, but no matter what you think of him, you have to admit that this gif is cute.
Dave Franco lookin’ cute with a cat.
Older bro James Franco also lookin’ cute with a cat.
Jesse Eisenberg looking like a cute grandpa with this kitty.
Is there a celebrity more obsessed with cats than Taylor Swift? Probably not, but it’s almost a little endearing.
Natalie Portman and a beyond precious kitten. I’m not even a cat person but that one looks so cute.
I know that Ian was already on Team Puppy, but…how could I not include this gif of him with a cat? He’s playing for both teams, okay? Deal with it.
But honestly, if you’re indifferent towards both cats and dogs…here’s Aaron Paul hugging a lamb.
Which, honestly, deserves to win on principle. But I’ll keep things fair.
Are you more of a cat person or a dog person? Would you rather watch the Puppy Bowl or the Super Bowl? Tell us in the comments!
