Tonight on Hallmark – get ready for the Kitten Summer Games, a cat-tastic celebration of feline acrobatics and dexterity, all in honor of the forthcoming Rio Olympics.

Yes, humans aren’t the only ones who like to test their athletic prowess against each other.

Any cat owner will be well aware of classic events like the Jump to the Top of the Door or the infamous Climb the Curtains.

Cat-letes competing tonight include Kristy Yama Cat Chi representing the North and taking part in the Gymnastics.

Not to be out done, from the South we have Toffee who will be taking part in the Pole Vault, though for health and safety reasons the cute collar and name tag will have to go.

In the West we have another gymnast in the shade of black and white cutie Nadia Come n Scratch Me.

On the East Coast it is John Macnmeow…we don’t make these up…who of course is a tennis player.

The kittens have been taking this very seriously as you can see from the training clip below. A rigid regime of practice has been taking place, though that tabby at the window appears to be slacking a bit.

So if you want to get into the mood for the Rio Olympics or just fancy watching some kittens running about, tuna in.

You can also get interactive by voting for your favorite or snapping a selfie. Check out the official site for more details.

You can see the rest of the cat-letes (we prefer cattheletes) below.

Catch the Kitten Summer Games tonight August 5 at 8/7c on Hallmark.
