Adorable “Christmas Cats of Instagram” Get Into the Holiday Spirit

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: when Instagram is flooded with photographs of its users’ most festive felines. While the social media site is always crawling with cute and comical cat photos, the silly snapshots are a bit more magical—and hilarious—during the holiday season, when “Christmas cats” arrive.

Uploaded with the hashtag #ChristmasCatsofInstagram, the jolly snaps serve as a festive reminder of why we love cats so much. From their apathetic (or adorably angry) expressions as they don Christmassy costumes to the way their eyes light up when they spot an unoccupied gift-bag or a not-yet-toppled tree, cats handle the season’s excitement exactly as one would expect—and we wouldn’t want it any other way!

You can scroll through some of the hilarious highlights below, or check out Instagram for more merriment. You can also upload your own photos of your furry friends’ hijinks using the #ChristmasCatsofInstagram hashtag.

During the holidays, lots of cats dress up in cute costumes.
