As it’s now December, it’s likely that you’ve already put up your Christmas tree. It’s also likely that your cat has decided to make the tree his or her new home/toy.
My boyfriend and I are still debating about whether or not to put up a tree. Though we had enough room to do so last year, we decided to forgo it. But this year I feel like we should make an attempt at bringing some festivity into our home, and I’m thinking that we really probably ought to get a tree. I need something on which to hang all the adorable cat ornaments I’m going to start collecting, right?
I’m a bit nervous, though. Chris’s cats were exposed to a tree several years ago, and Persy took quite a liking to it; my cats, however, as well as Creamsicle, have never seen a full-size tree, and I really don’t know what they’ll do to it. They’ll definitely pull off ornaments—they did that with the mini tree I’ve put up before, and they love playing with things they shouldn’t play with—but will they decide to climb it? My cats are fairly large, and I can already see the tree toppling over…
How does your cat react to the Christmas tree? I’m sure some of you have had your share of merry mishaps. Here’s a collection of 25 cats in Christmas trees—fortunately no cat-astrophes are pictured, but who knows what wasn’t caught on camera? If you have any of your own, please share!
