Christmas Cat Traditions

Christmas Cat Traditions

I had a cat who used to do this—every Christmas. <Sigh> Sometimes several times a Christmas—fortunately never when we had presents under the tree.

Thanks and many helpings of eggnog to my pal Mike Pascale for revamping Diego’s art to give it a Christmas theme!

Artist unknown. From the story “Chip on Her Shoulder” in Ten-Story Love #196, 1954.

Sorry, Santa!

Sorry, Santa!

I’ve used this art (with different gags) many times over the years. I have no idea why so many (mostly male) readers love it so much.

By the way, there’s no original art to compare it to because Allen Freeman drew it from scratch. Of course being a world-famous photographer of beautiful women, I guess he had lots of reference material.
