Church Cat Evicts Baby Jesus From Manger to Take Nap

Pips the cat, who spends her days prowling around All Saints Church in England, recently found a cozy new place to sleep: in the baby Jesus’ manger in a Nativity set up inside the church. When children arrived recently to rehearse their Nativity play, they were surprised to find the doll playing Jesus on the floor, and Pips curled up in the straw. The cat was put outside for the rehearsal, but “we let her back in so the children could fuss over her during refreshments,” said the Rev. Christine French. French shared a photo of Pips napping in the manger on Twitter, and it went viral. — See more photo at People Pets
