Yeah, we really, really, really needed this.

Thank you, Hugo, Ivan, Jiggle, Clara and Cookies. You have done your job well, of spreading some pawliday cheer.

And now it’s time to do our job of getting you guys into great homes. These festive felines are up for adoption through BARCS, in Baltimore.

Hurry on in — they’re the gift that keeps on purring!
