These Naughty Kitties Aren’t Concerned With Being On Santa’s Nice List

When it comes to our feline friends, destroying our Christmas decorations is often high on their list of favorite festivities. Our trees sometimes don’t stand a chance as they launch themselves inside of it—and don’t even get me started on those shiny and tempting ornaments. But, like the dedicated cat people that we are, we endure their shenanigans year after year and don’t make too much fuss about it…or the cleanup.

Some naughty kitties aren’t too concerned with landing themselves a spot on Santa’s Nice List, and these silly kitty cats are proof of it. And I’d like to give a special “thank you” to all the awesome Cattitude Daily Facebook fans who shared photos of their naughty Christmas kitties with me!
