Soon Nadia Come ‘N Scratch Me and Tabby Douglas will be household names.

Both CAT-thletes are coming to a TV near you on Aug. 5 at 8 p.m., as the Kitten Summer Games commence on the Hallmark Channel — luckily, we have an exclusive look at what’s to come in the clip above (so the suspense doesn’t kill you)!

The inaugural event is hosted by Kitten Bowl cat-cuddler Beth Stern along with legendary announcers Mary Carillo, of NBC Sports fame, and David Frei , of (gasp!) Westminster Dog Show fame, and features the nation’s most athletic and adoptable kittens competing in a series of sporting events.

Balance beam, uneven bars, ring and floor exercises, and de-CAT-hlon (of course) are just some of the events included — and, don’t worry, the competition isn’t too stiff.  All of the 90 kitty participants have already struck gold since they were all adopted into loving homes, thanks to North Shore Animal League America, the show’s partner.

Think your cat has what it takes to become a champion?  Here’s hoping Bela Cat-Rolle will one day take your kitty under his paw, too.

Tune into the Kitten Summer Games on August 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
