Thanksgiving might be a widely anticipated date on the human calendar, but growing evidence suggests that cats really aren’t that fussed with the holiday. Instead of embracing the turkey-tastic shenanigans of the season, many felines prefer to show their finicky side and affect a totally non-plussed approach to the day. Not convinced? Check out these felines giving a classically cat-like shrug to the whole Thanksgiving shebang!

Universal feline law dictates that any unattended table decoration officially becomes a new lounging spot.

This grey-and-white kitty looks aghast at the gross lack of gravy on offer with this Thanksgiving spread.

It is always good to have an absolutely hilarious human around to dress you up for the holidays.

The artsy black-and-white treatment on this picture suggests the cat is pondering the essence of futility with the eternal conundrum, “Of what possible use is the mini-squash?”

You think the look says “formal,” but the expression says, “not amused.”

Remember, napping is a daily discipline and not just a post-Thanksgiving feast pursuit.
