15 Cats That Ruined Christmas
As a popular fizzy dark soft drink manufacturer keeps reminding us – the holidays are coming. Christmas is around the corner and it’s time to wrap gifts, decorate trees and down enough eggnog to drown a reindeer. Nice, isn’t it, the festive period? The family get together and all enjoy the food and ambiance. And it’s nice for pets too. All their family are around, spoiling them and dropping bits of turkey their way. But some cats, we know, are evil. They make it their mission in life to ruin things. And Christmas can be high up on their list of priorities. For some reason, most felines have Christmas trees and things as their number one mortal enemies. Let’s see…
Here’s our first example of a pusscat trying to ruin the holiday season. And almost succeeding too. This cat has decided to attack the Christmas tree. Like many a cat. And it’s done a pretty impressive job. The tree has been felled. And just look at this moggy’s little face. She’s totally been busted. Absolute guilt. This cat should go sit on the naughty step and think about what it’s done. Bad cat!
What an action shot this is, huh?! Another example of a feline feeling fine as it goes nuts with a Christmas tree. This one seems to be going down the double agent spy route and taking down the enemy from within. Literally, in this case. Although it appears that this cat hates Christmas and wants to mess up the tree, it could be argued that the only reason we see this pet in such a position could be to get hold of that Christmas candy cane. Greedy puss.
More Christmas tree naughtiness from the cat world here. But this time it doesn’t look as though there’s any theft or destruction going on. In fact, it looks like a little bit or perversion’s happening. Hey, we might be wrong but to us? It looks as though this cat is looking up the angel’s skirt… See what we mean? What’s all that about? Cheeky cat. Trying to cop a look up the Christmas angel’s skirt and at her business. Perv.
This is a lovely scene this, isn’t it? Someone has clearly dedicated a lot of time, money, thought and patience into creating this Christmas scene in miniature. And we think it looks just swell. Except for the giant Godzilla-like feline lording it over the little town. Admittedly, this ginger tom is just sitting and chilling, but he’s still messing things up. And you know what? We reckon that he’s doing it on purpose.
WHOA. This is one big fat pussycat, isn’t it, huh? How many tins of cat food does this chunker get through a day? Anyway, enough of their waistline (hang on, do cats have waists?). This cat’s main offence has been to unwrap all the presents. And we doubt they were all for the cat. Maybe one or two, sure. But we can see by the guilty look that this fuzzball has broken the rules. And been caught out. Big time.
Christmas morning comes round and the family run downstairs excitedly. Everyone wants to rip open their gifts. In their minds, there’s wrapping paper everywhere as well as great big smiles everywhere too. But when they actually get downstairs? The damn cat’s lying all over them, snoozing! So they have to wait for when the cat wakes up and gets up. And when cats sleep for between 18 and 22 hours a day? Christmas day could be on Boxing Day. Or New Year’s Day.
Look, we’re not ashamed of this, but we will give you fair warning – we’re about to make the most obvious pun you’ve ever heard. Right. Are you ready? Okay. Here we see a – wait for it – cativity. Yep. We went there. We said it. It’s a terrible joke, we know. Even the cat’s groaning – look. Anyway – it was Jesus that was born in a manger, not a feline. So there’s no excuse for this pet to be sitting here.
One cat trying to ruin Christmas can be opposed and fought. Not literally, of course. But we mean you can go toe-to-toe with them (or toe-to-paw, at least) and come to an agreement. But when it’s a pack of cats… You’re in trouble. You can’t go up against a whole gangs of felines and hope to win the argument. It just ain’t gonna happen. Just look at them. It’s like the opening scene of The Warriors. But with more cats.
Quite simply, here is a cat attempting to eat a Christmas light. Why? Well, why not? Cats get hungry just like the rest of us, don’t they? And when you’re hungry. What do you do? You eat! Okay, so maybe you grab a sandwich or a bag of potato chips and most cats chow down on some kibble or something, but each to their own. It is Christmas, after all. Let him enjoy himself.
This puss isn’t eating lights, but wearing them as some kind of fashion statement. That’s what it looks like. Either that or it’s just another cat dedicated to spoiling the holidays for everyone. But taking up all the Christmas lights like this? That’s beyond the pale. So let’s just hope that this pet’s just trying to be a living part of the decorations and is, instead, a big lover of this time of year.
Here’s an action shot from a cat fiddling around with a Christmas tree and causing untold damage – look at this smashed up Christmas bulb. Baubles strewn across the floor, smashed to smithereens. That’s the path of destruction left by this pussycat who clearly hates Christmas and everything it stands for. What’s the matter with these damn animals? Why are they so intent on ending the festive season?! After all we do for them…
So we’ve seen plenty of proof that all cats hate Christmas and want to ruin it for the rest of us. So we now have no choice but to fight back. But how? Well, before we start actively trying to defeat them, we have to start by defending ourselves. And the best way to do that is to make cat-proof Christmas trees. And here’s a great way to do it! A little imagination can go a fair way…
Don’t want to cut half of your tree away in order to make it safe from brutal cat attacks? Well, there are other options. Like this special Christmas tree cage. The ultimate way to ensure that your moggy can’t jump all over your tree, eat our lights and smash your baubles. It’s quite an extreme measure, but these are desperate times that we’re living in. We have go the extra mile to defeat these pesky felines.
If we don’t start acting against these Festive-hating cats, we’ll never be able to put up Christmas decorations again. Look at this tree-spoiling cat. Not only is that cat quite happy to scale the thing – he’s so relaxed about doing it that he’s more than prepared to start sleeping in it. Probably for about twenty hours too. Dang cats. Still, this one does look pretty cute all sleepy like that. They always get us with their cuteness. Bah!
This is how cats see Christmas. They don’t like seeing tinsel and baubles on them. They only want to see cats in them. And the more the merrier. As seen by this lovely festive scene here. It looks like an easy style to copy at home. It might not be quite as festive, but – provided you’ve got access to a whole bunch of cats – you’re well away!
