Now it's Christmas
We got a perfect picture of both of the cats on Santa's lap at the Fredericton SPCA's "Pet Photos with Santa" fundraiser.
That was about, oh, five years ago.
Since then it's been a bit of a stickier wicket. They're older, bigger, crankier. They still treat the event with complete aplomb, ignoring great slobbering dogs and wriggling ferrets. But familiarity breeds contempt. They will not settle down and look at the photographer any more. They wriggle. They look all about. They are not impressed.
Here's this year's effort. They're endearing for their complete refusal to be adorable. Mojo looks positively pissed. Santa looks grimly determined, and is gripping them like they're his boarding passes for the arks escaping the apocalypse at the end of 2012.
Could've been worse. Could've looked like this.
Merry Christmas, all y'all.
