These days, the holiday season is really about peppermint-flavored everything and cats. But mostly cats.

We have cats in Christmas trees. Cats in Santa hats hating Christmas. Cats in Santa hats loving ... you get the point.

But some festive felines in Red Hook, Brooklyn, are taking their holiday cheer to biblical proportions. That's right – they're turning a local residence's nativity scene into a cat-ivity scene.

The Daily Treat: You Don't Need a Christmas Tree When You Have This Dog

The Daily Treat: You Don't Need a Christmas Tree When You Have This Dog

Originally posted 12/06/2013 01:35PM

We're a week past Thanksgiving, so chances are by now, you've probably picked out your Christmas tree. Maybe even decorated it. But if you haven't, here's a festive new way to mark the occasion, complements of dog Scout.

See, Scout is no ordinary dog. Scout loves to balance things on his head, as seen on his Mom Jen Gillen's Instagram account or on his website, Stuff on Scout's Head.

The pit bull has had everything from a stack of DVDs to a wheel of brie placed atop his noggin, but we think this cluster of Christmas lights might be his best topper yet.

Ruff Day! Sunny Obama Takes Down 2-Year-Old Girl

Sunny Obama Takes Down 2-Year-Old, We Consult Bo

Originally posted 12/05/2013 11:40AM

We've all been there: Christmastime makes everything more intense and everything is just emotional and then someone's in your way and ...

Okay, we're not going to accuse junior first dog Sunny Obama of going all Grinch on a 2-year-old at Wednesday's White House holiday celebration. We would never imply that little Ashtyn Gardner was anything but lovely before she took the tumble to top all tumbles – the fall to dethrone Jennifer Lawrence as the Queen of Highly Public Falls. She definitely did not – just speculating – poke fun at his dark chocolate replica featured in the annual gingerbread display. She would never.

Either way, what went down at the decor unveiling could totally sabotage Sunny's approval rating. As the children of military families gathered for a day of crafts and festive fun, Gardner's well-intentioned run-in with Sunny turned into the stuff Michelle Obama's nightmares are made of.

To be fair, Sunny only startled the tot, who then stepped back and tripped over a walker (watch below). Still, we know you're new here Sunny. We know it's your first Christmas in the White House. But you're doing it wrong.

Channing Tatum sure is nice, and we could stare at Zac Efron's six-pack all day. And, okay, fine – sometimes we just look at a picture of the Hemsworth brothers in the morning because it's not unlike a cup of coffee.

But they're not the only sexy beasts around here.

5 Animals Doing Movember Right

5 Animals with Mustaches to Celebrate Movember

Originally posted 11/13/2013 04:00PM

We mustache you some questions. (Ha. Ha. Okay, we're done with the puns.)

How is your Movember going? Are you marking the month by growing out your handlebar with class, elegance and sophistication comparable to that of, say, a cat? And, if not, do you need some inspiration?

The animal kingdom offers plenty of ideas when it comes to participating in the monthlong November event, which encourages participants to sport their mustaches with pride while raising awareness for men's health issues.

Here are five animals who are doing it right (including Hamilton the Hipster Cat, pictured above).

The Daily Treat: Two-Headed Turtle Is Named Thor and Loki

Originally posted 11/13/2013 01:35PM

They don't have Chris Hemsworth's golden locks or Tom Hiddleston's smooth moves, but this Thor and Loki combo are still quite the package deal. The turtle duo, named after the popular comic book characters, are inseparable – literally.

The Daily Treat: The Hunger Games, as Performed by Cats

Originally posted 11/11/2013 02:00PM

There's less than two weeks to go before the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but if you're one of the three people on Earth who hasn't yet seen the saga's first hit film, released in 2012, here's a quick way to get you caught up to speed. And it involves cats.

That's right. While we normally wouldn't advocate skipping any film that stars both Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, there is something to be said for the way a feline can portray Cat-niss that Jennifer Lawrence just can't replicate (no offense to the Katniss Everdeen actress).

We think you should sit down for this one.

Corgis may soon make their way onto the endangered breed list, according to the Britain Kennel Club's breeders's association. There were only 241 Pembroke Welsh Corgis registered in Britain this year, AFP reports. That number needs to be at 300 to stay off the vulnerable breeds list.

Corgis: the unofficial mascot of the Internet, the Queen's favorite kind of pooch, the stuff our dreams are made of. Together, we can avoid a Corgi a-paw-calypse. Just follow these seven steps:

Forget the candy, parties and costumes – all we needed to see this Halloween is Bogart the maltipoo in this uh-mazing costume.

We can't get enough of this photo Allyson Busby (@MadeWithLove88) submitted to our weekly Twitter contest of her rescue pup dressed as the decorative planter.

"I don't think Bogart is too thrilled about being a Chia Pet," Busby wrote, and we can't say we disagree. Poor Bogart looks ready to leaves ... er ... leave.
