Cats love to attack anything that’s shiny, so during Christmas, the target is pretty obvious. The funny thing is that cats are one of the few creatures on this planet that can completely destroy your Christmas and make you go 'Aaaw' at the same time.

That’s why we compiled a list of cats who failed adorably at being little Santa helpers. Do you also have problems making your Christmas tree cat proof? If so, submit the evidence for an investigation or vote for and comment on your favorite pics below!

This is just basic instinct. It's natural for cats to climb trees. Cute though.

It's a charlie brown Christmas tree. : ) I didn't even want a tree, but my mother insisted I put one up. It's an itty bitty tree. (She tried to talk me into a bigger one) But I was hoping I could just go to her house and look at her Christmas tree. At least on Christmas day, in the evening, I can put up my little tree and any other decorations in less than five minutes.
