Vancouver Christmas Cats of Instagram

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Two things that I, and most of the internet-using population around here, love dearly are cats and Vancouver — a reason why we recently hosted an Internet Cat Video Festival and funded a Cat Cafe. As such, during this busy holiday season I thought I would spread some lighthearted cheer by introducing some incredibly adorable local cats of Instagram who have plenty of Christmas spirit:

Found using this #CatsOfVancouver tag, elliot_sheldon is one well-behaved feline in this Christmas card-worthy pose:

Scout of TheScoutChronicles is a very social cat, sending out Christmas cards to many friends on Instagram who also posed with their cards:

While it’s not Christmassy per se — and I have no idea how they did it — but BestFriendsPetCareVancouver got this little one to not only wear a hooded sweater but also stay in it long enough to snap this photo:

A pet food and supply store on East Hastings, LongLiveCatsandDogs recently featured Ritchie in a festive Santa hat:

The Vancouver Canucks get a mention for their BCSPCA and cat-themed Christmas cards this year including this photo of Kevin Bieksa and a kitten:

Gary of HisNameIsGary is the only cat I actually follow on Instagram. He had me hooked ever since he appeared in a Yoda costume and this Santa Claws getup is just as good:

Finally, while not all cats they feature are local, the popular CatsofInstagram account is actually run by Erin Filtness of Vancouver and it’s the go-to Instagram cat photo account for more than half a million people worldwide:
