This Is What Happens When Starving Cats Meet Christmas

A Humorous Warning to Pet Lovers From Temptations

Editor's Pick

Underfeed your cats on treats at Christmastime and they'll do a wrecking job on your home. That seems to be the message of this entertaining spot by Mars Petcare's Temptations Treats, in which a bunch of overexcited felines are let loose on a holiday display.

Catflaps are opened and moggies are unleashed on a (somewhat clinically arranged, it has to be said) collection of food, decorations and holiday gaudiness. Before you know it, baubles are broken, trees pulled over and wrapping paper chewed, and there's plenty of yowling and clawing to go with it. The tagline is "Keep Them Busy" as we finally see the destructive kitties disappear to the sound of Temptations Treats being proferred.
