Pretty soon we'll start to see tons of photos of kids going to visit Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas. It's super cute, I always loved to go see Santa during the holiday season! But what about those of us who don't have kids? Well, if you're a crazy pet person like me, you may want to bring your pet to get a photo with Santa. You're in luck, there's a spot in Rochester, MN that can make that happen!

Should I Bring My Cats to See Santa?

Do you think my cats would cooperate and let me take them to see Santa? The answer is probably a big heck no, but I'm such a crazy cat lady that I would absolutely love to have a picture of my cats with Santa, that would be the best. This event, however, maybe be just slightly easier for dog parents.
