15 Shameless Cats Crashing Nativity Scenes


Cats are well known for their penchant for picking the most obnoxious possible spot to sleep. Whether it's across your keyboard when you're trying to work or neglecting the nice cat bed you just bought them for a cardboard box, if there's a weird place for a cat to squeeze into, it shall be squeezed into by said cat. 

And the latest victim to our feline friends' weird obsession with sitting where they're not supposed to? Nativity scenes.  

According to some stories, cats were actually there on the night of the Nativity. In fact, some say it's how tabby cats get their distinctive "M" marking on their foreheads. These kitties are here to show that they haven't forgotten the role they played in the Nativity scene. And neither should you!

    Because of the lamps and straw shining upon the Nativity it is only natural for kitties to want to be included; it’s the warmest place to be.

    HILARIOUS! Cats Always Make Themselves SO Purrfectly Comfortable WHEREVER THEY WANT. And Then They Look SO Annoyed When They’re Caught… Having Photographic Evidence Is Just Icing On The Mouse On The Cake!

    Cats still remember when they were revered as gods in Egypt, and expect to be treated as gods now.

    It’s so hard to look busy at work when you are doubled in laughter over cats in a manger.
