Cats Destroy The Holidays ... And Get Adopted For It

Cats can get a little rambunctious around the holidays - they've been known to knock over a Christmas tree or two and generally wreak havoc. But this mischief, while catastrophic, can also be pretty adorable - so much so that it has actually gotten a few lucky cats adopted.

The Humane Society Silicon Valley dressed up some of its "hard to adopt" dogs in holiday attire earlier in the season and got almost all of them adopted. They knew dressing up cats would only end in disaster, so they decided to give them some holiday stuff to play with and just ... see what happened.

As Finnegan Dowling, social media manager at HSSV, put it "Four hours, four cats, two boxes of trashed ornaments, several instances of bodily harm: Kitty Christmas!"

Indeed, the four lucky cats that were treated to a holiday extravaganza had a lot of fun and brought on a LOT of destruction.

There was tree climbing ...

... and just general stuff-wrecking. One of the cats decided to calmly sit in a box most of the time - with her butt in the air.

Classy.

The most amazing part of this catastrophe? The display got two of the cats who had been the shelter for months adopted, and got the other two some much-needed attention. Who knew destruction could actually be a good thing?

All these cats had to do was show off their sassy, mischievous, stuff-breaking selves and they were instantly embraced for who they are.

Cats are just too charming. Happy holidays, guys - enjoy your new homes!
