Sugar High

The cute little cat eagerly anticipated relishing some candy canes from the Christmas tree during the holidays, but, unfortunately, was disheartened upon realizing that all the ones adorning the tree were manufactured from plastic.

Santa’s Un-Helper

During the holiday season, our adorable pets have a tendency to display their negative traits. As an example, there was a dog who was quite fond of Santa Claus. He obtained a Santa Claus toy and in a single quick swipe, the merry toy was torn into pieces.
