Christmas capers: Simon

Christmas capers: Simon”s Cat surveys a rather unexciting Christmas dinner scene

A new cartoon, released exclusively to MailOnline ahead of its general release tomorrow, shows the cat trying to sneak through a window to deprive his owner of his Christmas dinner.

The video opens with a cat peering in through a window, looking at a table set with Christmas crackers and decorations.

When his owner “Simon” walks into the room with a huge turkey, though, the cat begins to get more agitated.

He desperately tries to squeeze through agap under the window. And when he finally manages to get in, promptly replaces the turkey with his own Christmas dinner – a boring can of cat food.
