Christmas Cats Kalypso

The cats wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas. All three of them: Sgt. Pepper, Desmond, and even Kalypso.

Merry Christmas, From Sgt. Pepper and Desmond

Here’s to a day full of friends, family, love, laughter, and delicious things. And being a good sport no matter what: even if someone plops you on a sheepskin blanket and forces you to wear a wee Santa hat.

Merry Christmas Cats

Because that’s what the holidays are all about, right?

    how in the world did you ever get cats to sit for that? Julie’s right, they do look like a J Crew Ad. Have a absolutely Merry Christmas and have a wonderful holiday!

      Ha! Don’t let one good shot fool you – they were did everything but sit still. I’ve found that with cats, it’s about sheer quantity. The more photos you take the better your odds of getting a good one. :)

      Merry Christmas to you as well!!

    Hi Lindsay. Love the photos, the blog, and your super delicious cookbook! Your cats are adorable! What breeds are they?

      They may look fancy but they’re all just domestic shorthairs. A tuxedo, a tabby, and a dilute tortie. :)

    These photos are hysterical! Ah, poor creatures, they should know this is de rigueur for the holidays, dressing up your pet and taking embarrassing photos to share with the world. My Corgi makes his ears go flat to defeat my photo endeavors. Merry Christmas and thanks for sharing your recipes and photos!

    Aw I love it! Mine would never sit still long enough for a hat, but she might tolerate a scarf! Merry Christmas to you, Taylor, and the cats!
