How Cats Do Christmas

In this pictoral display, we follow the adventures of a typical house cat at Christmas, reenacted by many cats from Creative Commons licensed Flickr photos you probably haven't seen before.

What is this? Out of the blue, the humans bring a tree in the house!

This tree is the perfect place to hide!

And they got out all these cat toys to hang on it!

Hey, keep your hands off. That’s MY ornament!

Hmmm, which one of these is my favorite?

Not only are they fun to play with, but they are delicious, too!

Underneath the tree is a great place to stretch out after you've played with it a while.

Yep, I've played so hard I need a nap now.

This tree is really beautiful. I almost hate to destroy it.

Can all this be beauty be real? How do I test it? By eating it or ripping it apart?

Don't mind me, I'm just straightening the lights.

The lights at the top are a little crooked, too, I'd better get up there.

Oh no! I'm all tangled up!

Now I'm almost to the top. Still tangled.

Whoops! I was just having a little fun. I swear I didn't know that was going to happen!

Many cats will be glad to help in wrapping gifts.

This one is looking for Santa Claws. He should be here by now!

What is the best part of Christmas? This little guy says it's the gift wrap! 

(Image credit: Flickr user Melissa Lyons)

No, the the ribbon is the best part! Look how much fun it is!

We beg to differ, the bags are the best.

After all of the holiday festivities, you will probably be exhausted, and in dire need of a nap.
