Russell Brand will be buying Christmas presents for his cats.

The comic actor and his wife Katy Perry own three pussies Kitty Purry, Morrissey - who gets his moniker from the former Smiths frontman - and Krusty - which is a combination of the pop star's name and the comedian's nickname Rusty - and intend to spoil them over the festive period.

And the 'Get Him to the Greek' star is looking forward to having some down town over the holidays with his equally busy spouse.

He told Big Issue magazine: "I like doing normal things for Christmas - watch the TV , sit down, relax, look out the window, play with the cats, give presents to the cats, expecting that they'll somehow understand he concept of nativity, that sort of thing."

The 35-year-old star intends to spend some of the festive season with his mother Barbara and his family in Essex, East England, and some time with Katy's parents Mary and Keith at their home in California but isn't sure where the couple will be on the big day itself.

He added: "I'm going to spend the holidays with my family and my wife's family. We'll certainly be together, but I don't know where yet."
