If you’ve ordered a kitten from Amazon for Christmas, chances are it will arrive a few days too early, thanks to a computer glitch at the online retailer’s fulfillment center.

“Ideally, we wanted the kittens to arrive on Christmas Eve,” says Wanda Triller, a spokesperson for “But we’ve had a lot of complaints that they’ve arrived three to four days early.”

“I ordered Baloo as a Christmas present for my wife,” customer Sean Ninan tells The Fluffington Post. “But he came too early and it’s not like we could have left the box unopened until Christmas day. I’m all for priority shipping, but this is ridiculous.”
