A Christmas Party Standoff: Baby Proofing vs. Feline Freedom 🎄🚼🐾

In a tale of Christmas party planning gone awry, our unyielding host refuses to bend to a coworker's demands for baby-proofing and a cat-free zone. Despite pressure from the boss and colleagues, the host stands firm, insisting that the party was agreed upon as an adults-only event with no restrictions on their beloved feline friends. With tensions rising and the coworker storming out in tears, the office is left divided and searching for a new party location. But will our host's unwavering stance on their terms ultimately lead to a lonely Christmas celebration? 🍷🎅
