The holidays lose some of their luster when you don’t have a lot of rah-rah Christmas spirit to begin with, never mind when it’s actually forced on you. Which is precisely the situation dogs, cats, ferrets and other family pets have found themselves in for centuries.
You can just see the wheels turning as they silently sulk, counting down the days til the Christmas season is over. Stupid costumes? Gone. Dumb family poses? No more! Tempting trees with all those twinkly lights and ornaments? Outta here. And kindly stop teasing us with the stringed popcorn.
Below you’ll find 30 photos of dogs, cats and other pets who put their own, decisive “bah humbug” stamps of disapproval on Christmas.
1. It’s you again! Take that!!!
2. This one speaks for itself.
3. You have 2 seconds to get this shot. Lickety split.
4. I’ve never been so humiliated in my life…
5. Who knows what evil thoughts are lurking in his mind right about now.
7. You idiot! Why’d you tell them I’d be okay with this?
8. Every year, I kill it. Every year, it comes back. What to do …
9. Please. Just pull the cap down over my face. I was sleeping.
10. I’m going to kill you for this.
11. Oops. But on another note, aren’t I cute? 🙂
12. Somebody needs to turn that frown upside down …
13. Hahahaha, poor little guy! And he has to know how ridiculous he looks.
14. Your fault. What’d you put those things on there for if you didn’t want me to play with them?
15. Busted, buddy. See that big chair back there? Make a run for it.
16. I think someone wants more of a low-key Christmas this year.
17. I’m a cat. What did you expect? Duuuuh.
18. I don’t need the lights or ornaments this year, just the catnip. Thanks.
19. He was trying to come down the chimney. What was I supposed to do, let him in?
20. All in a day’s work. Now it’s nap time. Again.
21. Hah hah, who’s looking down on who now?
22. The only good thing about Christmas as far as this cat’s concerned …
23. Just because I pull sleds doesn’t mean I’m part of Santa’s crew. C’mon. Just take the picture and get it over with.
24. I’m going to get you for this.
25. Does this dress make my butt lo- … Sigh. Never mind.
27. Well then. Guess who doesn’t get Christmas presents this year?
28. Santa’s “Naughty List” just got one more hash mark.
29. “I can’t get up. I can’t get up! RAAALPHHHHHIE!!”
