15 Things All Cats Do At Christmastime

Feline Navidad.

1. Taste-test the tree to make sure it's still fresh.

2. Embark on their annual scaling of Mt. Christmastree.

3. Single out one ornament and suspiciously eye it while trying to figure out how to thwart said ornament's evil plan.

4. But also wage feline warfare on all available ornaments.

5. Put up with all your holiday photography. Which always seems to involve hats engineered to piss cats off.

6. Look at your holiday decorations and changes in the house in complete confusion.

7. Explore the climate changes.

8. Open up all your presents.

9. And cats will always get inside any boxes or bags under the tree.

10. Which also means if you get them a present, they will assume the box it comes in is the actual present.

11. Get tangled up in the lights. Like, really, really freakin' tangled up in there.

12. Get dressed up for Christmas parties.

13. Invent new cozy sleeping places with holiday accessories.

14. Invade your Christmas stockings.

15. And, like humans, cats will also get impatient about Christmas's arrival. And so they may act like small children in the days leading up to the holiday.
