Compared to the often onerous demands made by young humans around this time of year, these cats seem easy to please.
"All I want for Christmas is someone to look past my age and love me for who I am," writes one cat, apparently, in the Blue Cross' Dear Santa campaign.
Another writes: "My Christmas wish is to find a lovely warm lap to sit on."
Cheap. Refreshingly non-materialistic. All they cost is compassion.
