In funny clips found by Daily Star, cheeky felines help their owners get into – or perhaps out of – the Christmas spirit by doing everything in their power to bring the fir trees down.

Whatever their motives, it's definitely impossible to be bored in the holiday season with a zany cat creating havoc.
