For all you crazy cat ladies out there, here's your chance to get even crazier with your feline. Santa Claus is coming to the Peninsula Humane Society specifically to let your pets sit on his lap and bark, meow, or hiss what it is they would like for Christmas this year.

If that sounds weird, it's because it really is.

Apparently, the SPCA has no limits on how it defines "pets," which means you are welcome to bring your goat, snake, or hell, a school of fish if you so desire, and get a "keepsake" photo of your loved one(s) on St. Nick's lap.

If you don't believe us that Santa is very animal-friendly, just check out this photo from last year's event:

Now we're curious. What does a snake want for Christmas? - THANKS TO THE PENINSULA HUMANE SOCIETY

Your pet's first chance to see Santa is Saturday, Dec. 1, from noon to 4 p.m.; he'll be there again Monday, Dec. 3, from 3 to 7 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 8, from noon to 4 p.m. Santa will be situated just inside the main entrance at 1450 Rollins Rd. in Burlingame, waiting to welcome your precious angels.

If this interests you, then bring a camera so you can record this amazingly bizarre Christmas moment. And please, send us the photo.

It'll cost you $10 per "sitting," all of which will benefit homeless animals. Multiple pets may pose in one photo as long as you can control them. Bring your dog on a leash and your cat in a carrier.

No reservations necessary.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
