Kittens in a Window


Kittens in a window at the holiday time are sure to draw a crowd. And that was totally true when Mom and Dad visited The City on the Bay the last week of November.

San Francisco’s downtown Macy’s store has a holiday tradition of giving a few windows over to the San Francisco SPCA. Their windows in the front of the store are impressive.

But the windows in the side and back are set up to house available kittens and puppies. They only display the youngsters because they are not distracted one bit by all the commotion and traffic outside their little window world. Adult cats and woofies could not tolerate this as you can all understand.

For your delight I asked Mom to share the kittens she and Dad visited on their short get away. Please forgive some of the window glare, Mom doesn’t have a proper camera so ya get what she gets. Na’mean??

Mine! No! Mine!!

Mine! No! Mine!!

And the little orange tabby boy was confused to say the least. He kept on looking up above his enclosure wondering what fabulous thrills awaited his discovery!!

Holy Ceiling Cat! This is way fun back here!

Holy Ceiling Cat! This is way fun back here!

No so fast young man!

Ohhhh—wonder if I can get up there?

Ohhhh—wonder if I can get up there?

You are gonna have to take your turn.

What do ya mean "wait"?

What do ya mean “wait”?

And then he called on the big guns—I’m still waiting to learn if Santa Paws answered his request.

Whoa!! Thanks Santa Paws for my new home!!

Whoa!! Thanks Santa Paws for my new home!!

Of course Mom cannot turn away from a kitty with gray furs like mine.

Mom Linda, where do you want me to look?

Mom Linda, where do you want me to look?

Mom finally got through to her.

Oh! You want me to look over here!

Oh! You want me to look over here!

I am sure these kittens in the window put a little smile on your face on a Monday. Rest assured that they have all been adopted. Who can turn down such a deal at a Macy’s, right?


Remember Momma Kat. She still waits. Thank you for your purrs and POTP. I have no new photos to share, so sorry.

  15. YAY to Macy’s for that wonderful window display which resulted in some FOREVER homes for the kittens!

    Hugs, Angel Sammy

  16. What a cool idea for Christmas decorating. Let’s face it, mechanical Santa’s elves in their workshop have been done to death!

    Thanks Savannah! Our HuMom enjoyed seeing the kittens, especially after celebrating our 8th (Hitch) and 13th (Me) “Gotcha” days last week. It’s hard to imagine I was ever a silly kitten…no so much for Hitch since Silly should be his middle name! We hope all those kittens, Momma Kat and her youngsters and every kitten everywhere are as lucky as we are in finding forever homes where they are loved and respected for the wonderous animals they are.🐾

  18. This a real Christmas story, thank you for telling this. Oh, they are so cute.

  19. WOW! That store is quite a sight! And as for kittens in the window, heck I don’t think I’d be able to tear myself away. That is a fabulous thing to do, and clearly had great success. The kittens sure did seem to be enjoying themselves too, and all home for Christmas! Now all we have to do is get Mommakat a home, I wonder if Macy’s could help? 🙂

  20. The little kitties are so purrty.
    But Our Hearts are breaking at the thought of Momma Kat still waiting and waiting…

  21. What a wonderful idea! And how fun for the kittens.

  22. Thank you Macy’s fur being so kind to helps kittens find home fur Chrissymouse.

  23. that is too cute… I would watch them for hours… who wants to see shoes and perfume and nerd stuff in window displays when there are much better things to watch?

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
