Popular animals this time of year tend to be of the barnyard variety (probably because Jesus was born in a barn). But if you’ve seen a kitten in a Santa hat, you know that felines can be just as festive as sheep, or even flying reindeer. International burlesque artist Meow Meow figured that one out, and has taken her sex-kitten metaphor to new heights in Meow to the World. The batty, über-flexible songstress can fly as high as Rudolph—and belt out a cabaret standard in four languages. Baby Jesus would be proud to have Meow Meow headline at the manger.
