Christmas Meows

Time to get out the cats! The Christmas cats, I mean. I collect Christmas picture books with cats as the main characters!

So, every Christmas, I get them out, read all of them again, and then decorate my house with them. The book covers are so festive with the reds, greens, blues, silvers.
