Seek and You Will Find!

I was looking for a painting of The Nativity to add to my collection. Sounds easy, doesn't it? After all,there are so many beautiful paintings of this event!
Ah, but I was looking for something a bit different; I wanted a painting with a
cat in it, because of the beautiful legend about how a tabby cat purred the newborn
Baby to sleep and was rewarded by Mary with the "M".
(That's a VERY short version of the story!)
Well, "Seek and you will find."
Here is the painting
I found. I think it is a purrfect addition to my collection!
