How to Wrap a Cat for Christmas

Pet Services 101: How to Wrap Your Cat


We all remember the scene.


The one from “National Lampoon\’s Christmas Vacation. You know the one I’m talking about. The one where the extended Griswold family is filtering into household and Aunt Bethany and Uncle Lewis first appear. Aunt Bethany gives the family a present that meows and shakes inside the box. I think it’s a first in fictional pet services, but it seems the senile Aunt Bethany has wrapped the cat up and gifted it to the Griswold family. This is what happens. Hilarious debauchery ensues.


We at Splash and Dash Groomerie & Boutique would never do it. But we have often wondered how one would go about the pet services of getting a cat wrapped in a Christmas present. Is such a thing even possible? How would the cat react, and what is the proper methodology to properly perform pet services? All of the above are answered in today’s viral video aptly titled, “How To Wrap A Cat For Christmas,” which was uploaded by the folks over at YouTube channel MoreFlippyCat, a partner of course FlippyCat— a leader in comedic pet services and antics.


The video begins with first selecting the right wrapping paper. You and your cat need to have a thorough discussion about patterns, thickness, and overall likeability before selecting the right wrapping paper to use. Once this is complete, you will need to comfort your cat, then get them into place. A few petting strokes will do, and over petting your cat may get them to lose interest preferring to chase the laser pointer instead. Once your cat is in place, begin wrapping. Important for pet services, do not begin with the tail. Begin with the main body for best results.


Once the main body is comfortably folded and taped over, then it is time to progress to the tail. Begin folding origami-fashion until the entire surface area of the tail is taped over. Tuck thoroughly up to neck area, and place a bow on your cat’s head. If your cat looks grumpy you know you did a good job.


Congratulations! You have performed your first pet services and successfully wrapped your cat.
