Cats And Christmas Trees
If you’ve woken up frantically looking for your cat, you should know it’s found a new home. Yes, a new home! Felines are adventurous animals, and are always full of energy. In other words, putting up your Christmas tree early, will definitely open up another dimension for your furry friend.
So, you’ve gone over budget with Christmas decorations, and you have bunions on your feet from all the shopping. (Don’t worry, everyone has those welcoming festive vibes). You’ve spent days trying to get your house all Christmassy and it’s finally looking good. But your tree is always in bad shape because of your furry buddy.
This is why, cats are strongly attracted to Christmas trees. It’s because they love the opportunity to climb and explore something new in the house! What gets them more chuffed is, if the tree is fully decorated and sparkling with lights. That’s when you know, even if your cat knocks down the tree 100 times, you’ll have to pick it up 100 times.
If you find Mittens or Toby trying to be the star on top of your tree, just worry about your tree, cats have nine lives, they’ll live. With one fall, your tree could go from perfect to “Oh Susan, I’m getting a new tree because my cat climbed to the top, jumped off and let it fall to its doom.” Now that wouldn’t be pretty. Here’s a tip, if you’re already supervising a toddler, you might as well add your cats to the list.
So yes, cats do have a strange relationship with Christmas trees. Now you can keep in mind that waking up after getting your tree standing, you might want to check the tree first to find your fur ball before looking anywhere else. Let the festivities begin!
