Photographer Brooke Goldman was off-duty and walking her boyfriend to the train station early one morning when she happened to glance over at a neighborhood nativity scene. What she saw made her do a double-take, then delighted her all the way down to her toes.

A cat had stolen the most coveted and holy spot in the piece – the nice, warm manger. 

Like any good photographer (off-duty or not), she had her camera handy, so she squatted down to take a couple of pics. 

As you can see, the cat looks pretty unamused to be disturbed – or maybe discovered.

But that’s okay. We’re all amused enough for him.
