How the Jinxx Stole Christmas

The Jinxx hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right.
It could be that it gave him too much of a fright.
But I think that the most likely reason of all,
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

Jinxx: There is exactly five bickies left in the food bowl. This will not do. I scream to make the human come fill the bowl. Phew, that was close, almost empty. Almost.

Am I just eating because I’m bored?

The humans replaced the hanging toys on the tree again tonight. Do they not realise how much effort it takes to get them all off and on the floor? I need a new plan. A plan to make sure the tree doesn’t go up again. A plan to break the human, and break Catmas. Bloody Catmas, the one time of the year where my brother goes crazy, and the humans are away regularly. And those stupid shiny balls, and that stupid scratchy tree-

Then he got an idea. An awful idea. The Jinxx got a wonderful, *awful* idea!

Jasper: Jinxx is up on the ledge knocking shiny toys off the Catmas tree again, I love this game! Shiny balls flying here, shiny balls flying there. But wait, what’s he doing now? I think he’s trying to climb the tree, trying to reach the unreachable. But brother, you’re not a good climber! CRASH.

He’s done it, the tree is down. All the hanging toys have scattered around the room, there’s so many to chase! Oh, this one doesn’t roll, I think it’s wood. Maybe I’ll chew on it. Jinxx is calling in celebration, I can hear the humans coming. I must hide quick, he’s going to be in trouble! It was all on him I swear.

Jinxx: I’ve done it! I have finally stolen Catmas. I hear the humans coming, I must try and conceal myself, under the table I go. “JINXX!!” The humans have noticed and they are not impressed. What is that they are saying, I tilt my ear out to hear them better. “Look at what this boy has done!”

He has always hated the Catmas tree. His heart must be two sizes too small. In fact, I think he has no heart at all.

Jinxx triumphant. Asshole.
