There are few things more entertaining than laughing at terribly awkward family photos – especially those with pets involved. Luckily, it’s the most wonderful time of the year for those of us who enjoy the practice.
Why? Because the holidays always seem to provide a treasure trove of pictures featuring people posing with their pets, of course. We’ve even gathered up some of the best to share with you and your friends. Enjoy!
Ah yes, it’s a photo studio classic: posing in pajamas with cats (also in pajamas). This couple truly wins at the Christmas card game.
Or wait, no – this guy wins. We’ve heard the theories about cats looking like their owners and vice versa – all this cat’s missing is glasses and a cheesy grin. We’re not sure what the cat on the right thinks of this little photo shoot though.

Home for Christmas
We’re not really sure what’s going on here, but that monkey is definitely happy to be home from space.
Ok, for real, what’s the deal with monkeys at Christmastime?
The Holy Nativity
All we can say is the look on baby Jesus’s face is absolutely priceless.
Who can guess which one’s named Muffy?
We have to know where they found those sweaters…
Christmas is About Togetherness
Ok, woah, too much togetherness. Too much. Down boy.
Fondue by the Fireplace
Those boots, the matching turtlenecks, the roaring fire, fondue, wine and a cat that’s also in a turtleneck? How could anyone top this truly inspired photo? It’s not possible.
How cute, there must be some mistletoe right outside the frame.
Red, White, and Merry
Wait… That’s not a dog.
The Bale family is famous for their fabulous yearly Christmas cards, but this is next level. Look how strong that dog is!
Fluffy looks absolutely thrilled to be part of this festive holiday photo shoot.
“But I asked for a puppy…”
