Instead, here is a story from the "Auckland Star" of April 17, 1907, describing the Boston Animal Rescue League's annual Cat Christmas Party. This seems to have been a tradition with them for some years, and I for one would take it over pretty much any other kind of party I know.
During this holiday season, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, don't forget to do an extra act of kindness for some cat, dog, horse, bird, or any other helpless creature who needs some love.
And not to fear; I'll be back with the usual creepy, blood-soaked mayhem on Friday.
