For nearly 10 years now, two sisters have maintained a nativity scene in the same lot in Brooklyn, NY. A group of feral cats have always lived in the lot and they don’t seem to mind the holy set-up one bit.

Now that the temperatures are dipping, these homeless cats are in need of warm shelter, so they’ve been snuggling up in the manger and cuddling up to Mary and Joseph and the rest of the gang. According to the sisters, the cats tend to knock Baby Jesus out of the way for optimum curl-up space.

“People love it,” says one of the sisters, Sue Amendola. “But they really get a laugh out of the cats.”

This cat-tivity scene truly spreads the Meowy Christmas message.
