Reader Stories: Winter Holiday Cats


Cats generally enjoy holidays, and Christmas and the other Winter holidays are no exception. Enjoy these pictures of holiday cats lounging by (or in) the Christmas tree, sometimes dressed in Christmas finery.

Your own winter holiday cats photos are welcome here, including Hanukkah and Kwanzaa pictures. The only rule is "No Photoshopped cat photos." We want to see cats in their own natural holiday beauty. An easy to use form is provided for your convenience
