Christmas Cat Pictures! Here’s Gabriel with his Present

I’d like to see some cats at Christmas photos if at all possible 😉 . If you have one please upload it to a comment. I may be able to dish out a prize for the best one.

I don’t do Christmas! Hardly, anyway. I have booked a Christmas dinner with a friend at a pub! That is more or less it. I don’t have a Christmas tree so it’s a bit tricky to create a decent “Cat at Christmas” photograph.

I do have a well wrapped Christmas present, so all I can do to create a “Christmas cat picture” is to capture Gabriel with the present. The photo on this page is what I came up with.

However, there will be more attempts to come because I love photographing him 😉 .

Note: the marks leading from his eyes down his nose are not due to eye secretions. They are actual markings in the fur.

Please search using the search box at the top of the site. You are bound to find what you are looking for.

  1. ‘Spending money is not necessarily a demonstration of love.’

    To turn this inside out, is refusing to part with a thin dime on behalf of the ‘loved one’ a way to demonstrate love? ‘Tough love,’ perhaps?

    Sidney’s ‘owner’ takes pride in declaring how much he loves him. Yet he allowed him to become infested with every parasite; denied him shelter during the winter winds and rain; and fed him cornmeal pellets whenever the thought crossed his mind – such as it is. Sid weighed seven pounds when he first came knocking at this door.

    To date, he has cost @ $1,600, which breaks down into his food ($70.00 per month and generally more, seeing as how he refuses canned food that is less than extraordinarily pleasing to him); his $43.00 per month dietary supplements; his $28.00 per month cat litter; his Advantage; his vermifuge; his ear mite drops; his one vet bill to date; his new heating pad; his new snuggy-loo, fleece blankets, toys, etc. Although he is pet and massaged, played with and made much of every day, there isn’t the faintest stirring of love generating any of this. There’s only the resolve that he be spared the brand of love – if that’s what it is – that offers nothing but neglect.

      Although spending money is not necessarily a expression of love, generosity is a good way for a husband to keep a marriage on the rails.

  2. While we DO give presents to the cats (of course), yes, Michael, they wait eagerly for the boxes containing our presents to be unwrapped! They always seem to prefer those to their gifts.

    But just as a reminder to all these great kitty lovers here to please be careful with ribbons, tree tinsel (don’t use it please) as they can be very harmful to cats who love to chew on them. That goes for wool and strings also!

  3. I so look forward to seeing Gabriel grow up .I get all my cats new toys at Christmas.i gave all my kids and grands a small gift and put up a tree. I am giving the cats and dogs at our shelter my extra money this Christmas.And someone left Mama cat and a kitten down the road .I found them today.I cant catch them yet ,but i took food to them.

  4. Those eye markings make it easier for the cat to see during the day. Anyway, love the photo. Gabriel seems to love the camera and the camera loves him. I love the photos. Keep them coming.

  5. Wondering what is in that beautifully wrapped box? Well dear kitty you will just have to wait a little longer. But I am sure it will be purrfect:)

    If not however, be reassured that the box is often far more exciting itself than its contents- pssst- my cats asked me to send you that message:) LOL

    Meowmy Catmas beautiful kitty.

  6. very lovely!!! Michael, I haven’t decorated for Christmas for about 12 years — mainly because of the kitties — I have a small apartment, and it would be a disaster waiting to happen — MOL!!! I do get them gifts — and of course, my son too. . .but we don’t really do Christmas either except to celebrate the true meaning of it — the birth of Jesus. . . I am usually working anyway!! Casinos NEVER close!! looking forward to more pics of Gabriel!! ♥♥♥♥♥

    • Well, we are similar perhaps for slightly different reasons. Christmas is massively over commercialised. I don’t like commercialisation. If Christmas was much more about about treating each better I’d participate more. The true meaning has been somewhat lost.

      • I agree Michael. It is way over commercialized. I do agree that we need to treat each other better — and it’s not about the gifts. I’m not big on gifting or even sending cards — plus I couldn’t afford it! My son Tyler and I get each other things all year long, so we don’t really designate a day of gifting. But that’s me anyway — if I see something someone likes or needs, I get it. I don’t need a special occasion to get something for someone. I do things on a “thinking about you” basis — albeit, it usually involves Tyler or the kitties — MOL!! Christmas is all about love and caring — not “what can I buy for you”. . . ♥♥♥
