Christmas “cat”astrophe

We have a family cat and like most cats she is extremely curious. This Christmas Eve her curiosity got us and her into a bit of Santa trouble.

This is her as a kitten looking soooo innocent 😇

Our neighbour has two small children who are also extremely curious (especially when it comes to finding presents) and so our neighbour hides their presents at our house and collects them late on Christmas Eve. We leave them at the bottom of our stairs so she can pop in for them when they’re asleep.

So, we were sitting having our Christmas Eve dinner when suddenly the peace was broken by the unmistakable sound of breaking paper and much caterwauling. We rushed out to find the cat had jumped from the stairs onto the largest present which wasn’t solid and she had gone through the paper and got stuck inside. The paper was broken and this was the special paper that all the Santa presents were wrapped in. Nooooooooooo!!

Just at that moment my phone pinged and neighbour was texting she was coming around to collect the gifts. I did the only thing possible in the situation….

I sent my husband to break the bad news.

Hiding in shame 🤣

  1. Oh no! I guess their gifts this year came with a story about Santa’s kitty who wanted to help load the the sleigh but fell into the package instead. I hope your neighbor’s found humor in your kitty’s mishap.
