Sioma the fearless feline proved he's one mean moggy after he chased away a curious fox after it slinked onto his territory near his home in the Kronotsky Reserve in Kamchatka, Russia.

The amazing chase was captured by Sioma's owner and photographer, Sergey Krasnoshchokov.

"Sioma started guarding our house as a tiny fluffy kitten and has always been brave from day one," said Sergey Krasnoshchokov. "He got a strong and difficult character, but we knew this from the moment we got him. I don't think he was looking for a fight, but he loves guarding and keeping watch. He takes his duties seriously."

The fox certainly had a fright. As soon as things got too serious, he ran off.

Cat from Vancouver {USA}

This cat of Vancouver is the main inspiration behind Melissa McClone's Christmas novella MISTLETOE MAGIC. When the author was asked to write a short Christmas story, she'd been dealing with a couple sick cats that not only meant trips to the vet but trips to an emergency animal hospital. Shasta was one of those cats.

"Unfortunately, Shasta didn't survive, but for the last weeks of his life, he was comfortable, warm, had plenty to eat and was loved. For me, that's what's animal rescue and fostering senior cats is all about," Melissa McClone says. "But I'm a romance writer and prefer happy endings. Christmas is a time for magic and miracles so in MISTLETOE MAGIC I wrote the ending I wanted for Shasta."

Cats from New York {USA}

This Christmas nativity scene in Brooklyn, New York, has become a home to a colony of feral cats over the years.

During the warmer months, the creche which houses the scene is placed in the back of the lot so the cats can stay. Once it's time for Christmas, both the nativity scene and the cats come out for everyone to see. It has become a popular attraction in Brooklyn.

Behind this Christmas nativity scene are two sisters, Annette and Sue Amendola. They live next door to the lot and started with the project about a decade ago.

The traditional nativity features statues of the Virgin Mary and Joseph kneeling in front of a hay bale that serves as the manger. When the two sisters put out the statue of the baby Jesus on December 25, the cats oust him from his manger and take his place on the hay.

"People love it, but they really get a laugh out of the cats," Sue Amendola said.

Traveling cats spotted in Fez, Morocco. Street cats are overabundant here. There are cats everywhere. That's because Moroccans don't keep cats at home the way they do in many other countries, and because they believe that neutering cats is cruel.
