Christmas Eve dinners with humans are overrated. Instead of making awkward small talk with your nosy uncle or holding on for dear life to your iPad while a random niece pulls determinedly at it, have a Christmas Eve barbecue on the beach with cat-lovers (and cats!) aplenty. Make your way to Cat Beach at 6pm for the annual general meeting of the Cat Lovers International Society Penang, and then tuck into the potluck barbecue on the beach at 7pm. Spread the cat love with gifts of cat food, cleaning supplies and anything useful to the cats and people at Cat Beach, or volunteer and get lots of kitty cuddles.
