What’s the naughtiest thing your pet has done at Christmas?

Has your pet been in disgrace for causing Christmas Day chaos? Did your dog polish off the turkey before it had been served? Or perhaps your cat climbed the Christmas tree and fused all the lights?

Last year while we were enjoying the Christmas festivities and having a small tipple or two, we heard an almighty crash from the kitchen. Our beloved spaniel, taking advantage of our momentary lack of supervision, had managed to pull a serving plate full of profiteroles from the kitchen counter onto the floor and wolfed the lot before we were able to stop him. luckily the chocolate sauce wasn’t on them or it could have been a trip to the emergency vet!

Can you top our story?

How did your pet manage to spoil your Christmas? Or have you got a story from a friend or family to share?

How does this make you feel?

We'd love to hear your comments

We had a cat, a stray brought home by one of my many children, to join the substantial menagerie already causing chaos on a daily basis. But this cat was something else. Female, capable of morphing from a purring pussy on a child’s knee into a snarling terrorist, all without warning.
She ate the turkey.
Yes, it was locked in the kitchen, yes we all kept an eye on it, but between its preparation and the oven she chewed a bite from pretty much the whole surface...no chance of cutting part off and carrying on...she’d wrecked the lot.
As I started emergency planning involving sausages and the ham meant for Boxing day, my wonderful husband and oldest child quietly disappeared, avoiding the ructions I thought.
But no, they returned bearing a fresh and un damaged turkey. They’d knocked up a local turkey growing farmer who took pity on them and prepared a left over bird just for us....at no cost.
We became friends with that family and are to this day, although my husband has passed away and most of the children are fledged. The cat brought love and kindness as well as disaster.

I remember as a child my family had a dog who decided to eat half a box of Turkish Delight and then promptly regurgitating it in my Dad's garden pond which was his pride and joy!

Our dog ate the Sky remote, the guy on the phone at Sky was very understanding and we got a new remote next day

My friend's dog decided to eat all the tinsel one year .... very festive poo eventually emerged! I did comment that this was taking Christmas decoration a tad too far in my opinion LOL

My cat, at the time, climbed my christmas tree. It kept falling over. I put a large screw into the wall and tied it to that. Visitors always asked, " why have you a big screw in yor wall"?

Well, this one's got me stumped and I've been a Collie man for fifty years.
