DIY Gingerbread House for Cats is Too Tempting to Resist [Video]

Cats aren’t known for being gentle with Christmas trees. That’s why Cole and Marmalade’s parents decided to build a paw-some DIY gingerbread house for the duo!

It’s Christmas, and your crazy cat(s) hates the tree. Like really hates it, and you’re afraid she’s either going to take it out, or make your life miserable while trying.

Some of our favorite crazy cat parents Chris and Jess came up with a brilliant, cat-centered solution for YouTube stars Cole and Marmalade. Marmalade is a well-known tree-menace (or, ‘The Ginger Menace,’ as Chris calls him!) and instead of letting the cats take the joy of the holiday away, Chris and Jess made it all about them. (As per the cats plan anyway…)

Their video on how to make a DIY gingerbread house for cats has cracked me up, and I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve watched the video several times because I was laughing so much. (Also, I was wondering if it would be a project I could put my six-year-old on as a prerequisite for that cat he keeps harassing us to get.)

While no gingerbread is actually involved in the building of this house house, I’m pretty sure the kittehs have no issue. It still includes the basics of a gingerbread house: cardboard boxes for gingerbread walls, white paper as the frosting element and even paper towel tubes wrapped in paper for candy canes.

Be warned… though Chris and Jess make it look like they are professionals, the actual construction of this ‘gingerbread’ delight may make you lose your s*&t because it’s a lot of work for cats, who most likely have no f$^# to give about it anyway.

Also, glue guns burn.

So, no shame if you just enjoy the video a few times like I have and leave the actual work for the pros!
