It started out so beautifully – a grown man is overcome with joy as he unwraps a PlayStation 4 (who wouldn’t?)
But Andrew Woodard’s festive spirit was short lived after a domestic cat decided to maul him – and he has the scars to prove it.
Footage shows the senseless attack, which resulted in the man, from Georgia, needing stitches on Christmas Day.
Oh, and if you laughed – you’re destined to join that cat in the land of fire and brimstone.
The video and pictures of the aftermath were posted on Facebook by Andrew’s friend, Jessica Freeman.
Despite the cat being a ‘jerk’ – Jessica’s words not ours – they could all see the funny side.
She wrote: ‘This has resulted in a trip to the doctor and stitches. We love him and genuinely hope he feels better. It’s just nice to be able to laugh with your best friends.’
Jessica also confirmed the cat is not hers and responded to commenters who claimed the animal must have been ‘abused’ to react in such a way.
‘A human was attacked here, not a cat. Only in 2016 would people blame a person who didn’t touch an animal for getting attacked by said animal bc they were excited,’ she added.
The two have since made up – but Andrew should probably sleep with one eye open, just in case.
