It's a well-known quirk of every weird cat that they love to squeeze themselves into the middle of things. Whether it's a box, a jar that's way too small or simply just sitting on your computer keyboard while you are trying to get your work done if there's an awkward space to be occupied a funny cat will soon come along and seize it.

Can you imagine then, the attraction of the nativity scene for our feline friends? All those tiny people to trample over, a manger to lie in, a little straw to sit on, Christmas decorations to knock over and most importantly, to be the center of attention. It's a feline paradise!

We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of times when these cute cats couldn't help but crash the nativity scene. Scroll down below to check out the stubbornly, proudly awkward kitty cats in all their glory and don't forget to vote for your favorite funny photos!

well we all know the story of Mary, Joseph, the ox the donkey and the cat in the barn in Jerusalem, they just do not give that Cat enough credit for ceeping the rats and mice away from poor Baby Jesus. So this courages Cat had to correct the error. Good for you Cat, good for you!
