It's Christmastime, which means Christmas trees, Yuletide fires and... nativity scenes.
The perennial Christmas favorite, the Nativity scene is the centerpiece of every small town's Christmas decorations, and towns across America pride themselves on the extravagance of theirs. This is a celebration of the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, after all – (or, at the very least, a very pretty decoration, if you're not into the whole Christian Christmas thing).
But not everybody is impressed by the importance of the Nativity scene. By everybody, of course, we mean cats.
No Room For Baby JesusThis is Felix. Felix is fat, has luxurious black fur, and is very, very comfortable. Does Felix care that he's taken Baby Jesus' spot? Heck, no! In Felix's eyes, this is his spot. He is master of his domain and everything that he sees. Also, Baby Jesus can sit allll the way down – according to Felix, that is.

And then the little baby Jesus was carried off by the Catosaurus. The end.
Feral cat mangerDear friends, you may not recognize this, but Christmastime is actually a period of great horror, and *gasp* bodysnatching. Look at this picture. Look at it closely. Notice anything?
And the angel said unto them "behold, a cat stuffed itself into a manger"
