The Nativity Cats of Brooklyn

Away in a manger no crib for a cat...

Sisters Annette and Sue Amendola have been putting up a manger outside their home in Brooklyn for the past ten years or so, but over the last few years, the manger has become quite a neighborhood attraction and not because it's so accurate. Instead, people come to see the neighborhood stray cats that have taken over the scene and claimed it as their own -and do so every year. 

The cats don't put up with the baby Jesus stealing their limelight either -when he's in the hay, they simply knock him out of the way and take over the most comfortable seat in the scene.

If you happen to live in New York, you can check it out for yourself. The great scene can be found at 344 Van Brunt Street.
