Photogenic felines have purr appeal during holidays

Oklahoman Modified: December 24, 2009 at 6:11 am •  Published: December 24, 2009
Our shelter-adopted "home” cats are Kitty and Sissy. They enjoy dressing for the holidays. Each year since 1988, our cat or cats have been our Christmas card photo.

In 2008, we also became parents of kittens born on our deck at our law office. We named the kittens Huey, Dewey and Louie. Louie was adopted, and Huey and Dewey became our "office” cats. They live in our law office in midtown Oklahoma City.

Huey, pictured, enjoys dressing for the holiday, but his brother, Dewey, could care less about the holidays, dressing and photographs.

Christmas trees are cat's meow for Edmond family

Our cat, Sambo, thinks Christmas trees are the greatest idea ever -- an indoor tree all to himself. He climbs the center pole and peeks out to see what else is going on. When it comes time to take the tree down, he takes part in that, also jumping in and out of the storage tubs. What fun!
