Christmas can be a joyful time of year, especially if you're a cat. The humans bring in a big, fluffy green climbing tower/secret hideout into the house and decorate it with all kinds of shiny, moving things that look a lot like toys. Then there's the wrapping of presents -- bows, ribbons, crinkly tissue paper and boxes! What cat doesn't enjoy the fun those things can create?!
Just be warned, kitties, your human might get some wild hair up their ass and decides to dress you up in a Santa suit or some other hideous holiday ensemble... Don't tell them you got this idea from us, but you could get your revenge by climbing the Christmas tree and "accidentally" knocking off a few special ornaments along the way up. Oops!
Is that not the cutest version of Santa you've ever seen?!
The elf costume on the kitty on the left is very fitting.
Someone better invite this little guy to their ugly sweater party.
And this pair...
What do you mean, Santa isn't real?!
Kittens make cute Christmas tree decorations.
You better make the dog do this, too, human.

Someone must have just broken the news to these kitties that Santa's not real...
This kitten is terrified of Santa. Who could blame him?
This kitty is really sorry. He thought the tree was a giant scratching post.
The beard is real, okay?
When you wrap a cat, it's important not to forget the tail.
Nom nom nom.
Christmas lights can make a really warm napping place.
Does this sweater make me look fat?
