2013.12.02 141In the SF Bay Area? The San Francisco SPCA is once again teaming up with Macy’s for Holiday Windows, the annual event where adoptable cats and dogs are showcased in Macy’s windows in Union Square. This year the Windows will be unveiled by Grumpy Cat, who will be available for photo opportunities! It all starts tonight at 5pm. (PT.)

The 2014 Holiday Windows run tonight through January 4th…here’s a schedule.
