"Merry Christmas, you filthy animals!" Name the best Christmas movie of all time... we're both thinking of Home Alone, right?  If not that's OK, we're all allowed to have different opinions after all. 

OwlKitty, the cat parody legend is back and this time has made her way into the classic Christmas film, Home Alone. OwlKitty has been in parodies of various films and popular ty shows over the years, and each parody is simply incredible. Including this one. Not only is this parody of re-imagining what Home Alone would be like if OwlKitty was involved, but it's filled with Holiday spirit and we're definitely feeling that this week! But let's be honest with ourselves, Home Alone would be such a different movie if Kevin had a cat. The Wet Bandits wouldn't have made it out of the kitchen.

For those of you wondering who OwlKitty really is, her name is Lizzy, and she is a three-year-old cat living in Portland, Oregon.

Cat Medley: Cuteness Galore, Funnies, Holiday Cheer And More

It's been a long, weird year and we have to say thank you. A huge thank you to our beloved cats for keeping us sane during all these super weird times. What would we have done cooped up all day and night in lockdown without our animals to provide us with comfort? We don't even want to think what this year would've been like without them. 

This is a thank you to all the cats out there who didn't have to do anything but just be there. This medley consists of cat funnies, cat cuteness (naturally), some holiday cheer, and other adorable and silliness in-between. 

Give your pets some affection today to show them just how much you appreciate them. And to those who lost a pet this year, our hearts are with you and we are thinking about you. Your beloved pet may be gone but never forgotten.

Miniature Gallery Of Bats In Tiny Santa Hats

It's absolutely no secret that we are a tad bit obsessed with seeing animals in various hats, it's just cute on cute and that double cuteness is too much to handle. This holiday season, we came across a very adorable tweet in which a Twitter user, @lenavalkyrie, accidentally googled "Santa Bats" instead of "Santa Bats." This little mishap led her to discover the cutest and most wholesome little gallery of tiny bats donning tiny hats!

Someone should tell the Grinch that all he truly needed to grow his heart was to look at these images because our hearts just grew 10x just looking at these images of bats!

Cat Medley: Cuteness Galore, Holiday Cheer, Mourning And Loss

All cats are beautiful! Every single one of them, even if they're missing an eye, missing a limp, or born with a rare defect. We celebrate all cats here at I Can Has Cheezburger and dedicate each cat medley to them. 

Once a week, we gather up a bunch of adorable and gorgeous cats doing what they do best - being cats. Some photos feature humor, others may share mourning and loss, but all have an undeniable beauty. It's always a heartbreaking and devastating moment if a furbaby crossing over the rainbow bridge. Those animals were such a large part of our lives, hearts, and ourselves. 

Our hearts go out to all those who have recently a beloved one. They may be gone but never forgotten.

Australian Family Discovers A Koala Chilling On Their Christmas Tree

We're calling it the greatest Christmas gift ever! One lucky family in Australia had quite the unexpected visitor this holiday season, all thanks to one unusually large and furry ornament hanging from their Christmas tree - a real-life koala! 

The McCormick family discovered the koala tangled in the lights and the plastic branches of the tree last Wednesday, Amanda McCormick shared in a Facebook post, "Well that's something you don't see every day... we just came home to a real-life koala up our Xmas tree in our lounge room!"

McCormick told The Guardian how she believes the koala found its way into their home and tree, "must have crawled in when the doors were open. It would have been in our house for at least three hours." 

So, what do you do when you happen to find a koala in your Christmas tree? The family called the local Adelaide and Hills Koala Rescue, and when the rescue first heard their story, they thought it was a prank call. Adelaide and Hills Koala Rescue wrote on Instagram, "But no, a koala desperate to get in the Christmas spirit had wandered into Amanda McCormick's house and decided it wanted to be the fairy on the Christmas tree. Tis the season to be jolly... Koalalalala Lalalala."

And this past Friday, McCormick's daughter shared a video of the koala on TikTok which has since gone viral because let's face it -- a koala in your Christmas tree is pretty darn special!

Cats vs Christmas Trees: The Endless Struggle Continues

'Tis the season! Thanksgiving is over and the holiday season is well on its way! We're seeing people put up their trees everywhere! And those who have cats know more than anyone how this next month will be.

The age-old classic, cats vs Christmas trees. It's a yearly segment that we never get tired of because there's always new and hilarious content out there of cats destroying or plotting to destroy that highly decorated tree. Will the humans win this year and have their tree up all season? Or are they simply doomed and their cats shall be the ones to decide their faith?

Sweet darlings cats, if there's one universal truth is that they have this need to be within that tree, they have a desire to attack those ornament, to take down the tree entirely. They can't help it, they are programmed to destroy that tree. Who was it that programmed that function is not known to us, but we have reason to believe it was a higher power.... ceiling cat, perhaps?

Friendly Holiday Reminder That Pets Are Not Toys

Thinking this might be the year you gift a loved one with a pet? You should really think about that gift decision. Animals are a commitment, they need constant attention and love and if you're not equipped to fully take on that role, along with multiple responsibilities, then you may want to take a moment and think about what you're getting yourself into. 

We're not saying that one shouldn't adopt an animal, we believe having an animal in your life enriches it but it's important to realize everything that comes with a pet. Yes, it's hard work, and it is extremely rewarding if you put the effort into it, but if you don't have the time then perhaps now is not the right time. 

The holidays are coming up and here is a friendly PSA when it comes to gifting animals! 

thumbnail includes a backdrop image of a corgi and a snippet of a post "the holidays are coming up, and as someone who works in a pet store there are some things i want everyone who plans on getting animals as gifts to remember"

Wholesome Pupperino Snaps Embracing The Cold

Brrr... it's getting colder and colder! Winter is well on its way and there's no stopping it. At least one thing we can look forward to is seeing all the different reactions animals have towards wintery things, such as snow and Christmas! 

Those moments of dogs seeing snow for the first time are magical. Or when cats see their first Christmas tree! Granted, they'll end up destroying it but we're talking about that magical moment where they take in all that beauty they see and all you can see is pure excitement. 

Dogs are already pure enough as they are so when you capture them in a moment such as a first-time experience, well, it's simply too much for the heart to take in! Not only do we have first-time experiencers here but we also have quite a few senior doggos that just make our hearts smile! 

We hope you have a wonderful day!

Cat Gets Money For Christmas And Sparks Wholesome Thread

Getting gifts is great but giving gifts feels a whole lot more fulfilling! In this insanely adorable Twitter thread, user @averagediana shares a series of photos of her family giving their pet cat, Gus, a Christmas gift of $5. 

And even though, yes, Gus is a cat, and cannot do anything with the $5, it's the thought and sentiment behind it that counts. 

After the the tweet went viral, other users began sharing what their furbabies received for the holidays and it's simply too precious. 

Other users simply shared pics of their pets due to their uncanny resemblance to Gus himself! 

Either way, we're not complaining. We can look at cat pictures all day. And we do.
