Tweeting may not just be for the birds anymore, but Animal Planet's Meep the Bird would argue otherwise as he joins Puppy Bowl VIII with his own Twitter account in hand-or, rather, claw. Follow Meep (@MeepTheBird) for his behind-the-scenes tweets offering a puppy play-by-play from the Animal Planet Stadium as the two teams of dachshunds, chihuahuas, terriers and other breeds try to score a chew-toy touchdown. And for the first time at the Puppy Bowl, a pep squad of piglets will cheer on their fellow furballs from the sidelines. To give the pups a much needed break, the felines take the stage during the Kitty Half-Time Show, which will feature adorable kittens pouncing and playing, culminating in a confetti shower. All this cuteness will air Super Bowl Sunday Feb. 5 from 3-5 p.m. ET on Animal Planet, prior to the big game on NBC.
