Mum Does Elf On The Shelf Snow Angels Prank Which Her Cat Uses As A Litter Tray

Mum Does Elf On The Shelf Snow Angels Prank Which Her Cat Uses As A Litter Tray

Cats have once again gone and proved themselves to be the d***s that we all know they are, this time, by ruining 'Elf On The Shelf' for one kid.

Not content with sabotaging Christmas trees every year, this time, one has literally s*** on the joy of the festive season. When one mum decided to a cute 'Elf On The Shelf' snow angel display for her son, it didn't quite go to plan, when her cat decided that the sugar she'd used to replicate snow was actually suitable to use as cat litter.

Katie Wright, 34, has started doing the Christmas trend for her four-year-old son Oscar, and thought the elf's antics would really get him excited for Santa's arrival.

Speaking to LADbible, business owner Katie said: "It's our first year doing 'Elf of a Shelf'. Oscar is only really just seeing the magic of Christmas. I've kept the scenarios pretty basic; aware that I have a decade of elf placements to deliver!"

But, deciding that she'd get creative was ultimately poor Katie's downfall.

"Last night I decided to do a snow angel. Just a simple sugar shower and a 'Hi' message from the elf. Easy. This morning when we woke my son was eager to race downstairs to find the elf."

Sadly though, it wasn't as easy as that, with Katie's cat deciding that it wasn't just going to sit by and let people enjoy the festivities.

Mum Uses Elf On Shelf To Prank Her Partner Into Thinking She's Pregnant

She added: "As we walked through the dining room I could smell it. I picked my son up, concerned we were about to stand in something brown and smelly. As I entered the kitchen the smell was overpowering.

"I approached the oven and there, next to the elf was a huge - I mean HUGE - cat s***. My cat had obviously confused the pile of sugar for a litter pile."

To Katie, it was anything but funny, but little Oscar found it hilarious, thinking it was the elf who had done the dirty business.

Katie said: "He was screaming 'elf poo', but what I was facing was like a scene out of an awful, low budget horror film and all these thoughts were racing through my mind - 'will Oscar tell his school teacher?', 'will my daughter, when she wakes, see the funny side?', 'will my cat forever shit on the elf? Or worse... on my kitchen side'."

After it had time to sink in, and after Katie had the delightful job of cleaning up her cat's mess, she eventually managed to come to terms with the horrors she'd seen.

She added: "We all saw the funny side a few hours later, but I'm in no hurry to reproduce elf scenarios that the cat might confuse for a litter tray."
