Cats That Regretted NOTHING When They Crashed Nativity Scenes

Reality is: cats are cats and they're gonna do what cats do. There are many reasons why cats may be lured in to the very center of nativity scenes. If you're unfamiliar, nativity scenes are common and popular Christmas decorations, depicting the birth of Jesus. The wholesome imagery often stirs happy feels in the folks who sometimes get a little too caught up in the capitalist components that Christmas tends to consume us with.

So, why do cats crash nativity scenes? Is it the cozy little bed? Is it the spot of light that shines on the cozy, little bed? Or purrhaps... it's because they simply cannot tolerate attention going anywhere other than them? We can muse over it while we giggle at a gallery of cats who decided, "I'm the reason for the season, now, Karen."
