wishing all the best to you and yours.
(and wishing you good luck getting THIS song out of your head…)
heading to the beach.
but first some cat memes:
“thinking of you…”
“as we make our holiday plans”
wait, that’s no christmas tree! uh, oh….
Merry Christmas, El Gato. Thank you for providing us with rational, analytical & amusing content all year. Your perspective has been invaluable to maintain sanity.
Stay safe, or “Screw them, I’m livin’!”
So much benefited from your unique blend of insightful analysis & whacky good humour.
Both are much in demand, now & always.
From Mike & Joanna xx
You are the best......talked me off the ledge many times :).........I wish you and all of us that do what we can to stay sane and optimistic the best Christmas you can haver and I'm lucky enough to be in Florida so I count my lucky stars every day.
Please keep fighting for us...you make such a difference for so many!
Yesterday morning my cat ignored his perfectly good tuna pate in favor of trying to munch the pine needles off our tree. I think he's reading too much messaging from this blog about becoming ungovernable.
Merry Christmas to all the bad cats out there... especially the one that visits my inbox every day. Heartens me and arms me and my friends and family to fight the good fight. Blessings! - Raptor. (haha almost put my real name! So duh!).
You brighten my inbox every day. Merry Christmas from the lockdowned not-so-great-anymore white North. Otherwise known as the woke state of Canada.
Ps we should be in Cozumel right now scuba diving 🤿 it’s clear waters yet we are banned from flying and can’t leave the country. 😢
Merry Christmas from one cat-loving, freedom fighter, to another! (Now, next time our ukulele group sings "Feliz Navidad" we will HAVE to sing it the "Iguana" way...and yes, get it out of my head!)
Merry Christmas to all of us who are staying informed, clear-headed and withstood pressure from every angle yet still living w kindness, compassion and hopefulness 🎄🎄🎄🎄😁
Ah, Gato! That fur tree!
Thank you so much for your wonderful, wonderful writing. Always laced through with wit and irony and mirth. I wish you and yours a blessed and joy-filled festive season.
Merry Christmas Gato! Thank you for providing sanity and logic!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. Glad I found this wonderful group of likeminded thinkers. Let’s me know I’m not alone. So happy I took my family out of PA and moved to AZ in May.
Merry Christmas from Spain.
And many many many thanks for all you are doing.
Best wishes for you and yours, from a human, a dog and 3 cats (2 good ones and one bad one)
Meowy Christmas to you and to all the cool cats here. Wishing you all Peace , Love, Truth and Unity. 🙏🌲😼
Merry Christmas & thank you for lighting up the dark places!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good life.
To all here, a Joyous Christmas and hopes for a Happy New Year. This was a very nice way to start this day. Thanks!
Merry Christmas from the canines!!
Christmas blessings to you, Gato, and to everyone on this list. You never fail to lift my spirits amidst the current darkness, and I'm grateful to be in the company of others who are committed to being ungovernable. I continue to see possibilities in the collapse of the old, corrupt, exploitative systems; and I trust that those of us who are awake will succeed in creating something better. May 2022 encourage us by bringing visible progress on that front. Love to all. 🎄💫🥰⭐️
Merry Christmas, feline friends.
May we all find peace and joy in whatever corner we call home.
May the earth reverberate with with purring.
Thank you for all your hard work this year! I very much look forward to your posts — they are invariably both informative and entertaining; a bright spot of sanity against the background of madness!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! All the best to you and yours!

And a Merry Christmas to you, and a Happy New Year to us all. El gato, you make me laugh. Bless you and thank you.
And Merry Christmas to the two Coolest Cats in the anti-COVID cabal, Gato Malo and Gatito Bueno, providers of most useful information and commentary on the crazy times we're in.
A blessed Christmas to you el gato from a cat (and bird) loving human, 2 black cats, one toothless tabby and Miss Poofy Floofers. Thank you for helping to keep us sane and non-compliant. May we all be ready for whatever comes in 2022 and not grow weary of the battle.
Hope there are some tasty Tuna Treats and a few catnip goodies in your stocking! Thanks for all the great info and excellent commentary. Looking forward to 2022 with you! Feliz Navidad!
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are working on getting out but are currently in a blue state. Without your data, analysis and humor we would have lost our minds. Many thanks!
And a very "Meowy" Christmas to you too. My BFF has never been an animal person, but after subscribing to your Substack, she's starting to admire my cat pics I share. Well done, Señor!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all the rational folk out there, and a big thanks to the Gato of Badness!
Una muy Feliz Navidad y recuerde lo que realmente cuenta ... la familia, los amigos y nuestro poder superior. Dejemos que la compasión y la apertura de todas las mentes se tengan en 2022.
A very Merry Christmas and remember what truly counts....family, friends, and our higher power. Let compassion and an opening of all minds be had in 2022
Feliz Navidad, bad cat.
