Yes, Santa Will Let Your Pet Snake Sit on His Lap

Categories: Animals, WTF?

Thanks to the Peninsula Humane Society for this gem
Your other option, Santa, is a bunch of screaming kids
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?

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.
