Pudding the Christmas cat loves to be a Christmas helper. She thinks she is a wonderful Christmas helper! Today she thought she would help my other Christmas helpers: the elves in the toy workshop.
The elves were being good little Christmas helpers and were very busy wrapping up presents. There were piles of wrapping paper stacked high. There were heaps of gift tags to be written. And there were rolls of sticky tape lined up ready to be used. It’s a lot of work being a Christmas helper!
Pudding sat on top of the wrapping paper pile. She thought it was a good way to make sure it stayed nice and flat. But the elves kept pulling pieces of wrapping paper out. So, she moved.
“I know,” she thought to herself. “I’ll get the sticky tape ready!”
Pudding pealed out the sticky tape from the roll. Uh oh! It was stuck to her paw. She tried to bite it off with her teeth. Oh no! Now it was stuck to her nose. She tried to scratch it off with a back paw. Yikes! Now it was stuck to her back paw and her nose AND her front paw!
So, she tried to roll herself free. Ho! Ho! Ho! Now she was a big Christmas pudding-shaped ball of tape. Pudding was in a very sticky situation!
The elves were so busy being Christmas helpers they did not notice. Pudding was picked up and wrapped up in Christmas wrapping paper!
“Meow!” she cried. “Let me out!”
The elves all laughed. “Look!” Clumsy the elf said. “Pudding the Christmas cat is Pudding the Christmas present!”
Pudding decided she had been helpful enough for one day. She thought she would leave the wrapping to the other Christmas helpers and “stick” to snoozing instead! HHHOL!
