15 Cats That Are Overly Excited For The Holidays

October means Halloween, and once that spooky holiday passes, it’s all about Christmas. Thanksgiving is but a blip on the holiday radar these days since the major focus is always Christmas time. And with Christmas comes all the fun holiday decorations that come with it, especially Christmas trees.

Everyone puts up a tree in their home for the holiday season. But if you happen to have a cat or two who live in your house, then you know that your Christmas tree and all its decorations may not always be safe. Cats are mischievous animals. They will get into trouble year-round, but there is something about Christmas that makes them extra naughty, particularly when the tree goes up.

And below are 15 images of cats who have definitely made Santa’s naughty list with their tree-climbing antics:

1. I am the star.

You can almost hear this cat saying “worship me” as he sits atop the Christmas tree. He didn’t even let them put up the lights or decorations first.

2. Oops

This cat didn’t even wait for it to be up five minutes. That is typical cat behavior.

3. Peek-a-Boo!

This cat clearly has found himself a fun little hideaway for the holiday season.

4. Let Me at the Tree!

This is not a happy kitty. He wanted to destroy the tree and he got interrupted. Better luck next year!

Look at those claws. They’re ready to defend his new hideout to the death!

On close inspection, it’s probably not as innocent as it appears.

15. The Paw is for Destroying Christmas Ornaments

This picture would almost make a cute season’s greeting card were it not for the fact that the cat is so going to break something.
