The City Creatures Blog is on a holiday hiatus, entering a period of torpor, as it were. We'll be back toward the end of January with fresh posts to meet your creaturely needs. In the meantime, may I suggest you nuzzle up by the fire (or, if you're a denizen of the southern hemisphere—or have migrated there as many of my winged kin tend to do this time of year—nestle into a favorite beach chair) with this excellent selection of urban animal stories? You'll be glad you did.
As you can see from the photo above, Santa Claus isn't the only one watching.
Merry Meet, Merry Part, and Merry Meet Again,
