Decorating A Christmas Tree With Cats, Challenge Accepted
If you’ve ever tried to decorate the Christmas tree with cats in the room, then you know just how epic this video is going to be. The cat v.s. Christmas tree battle continues...
There’s something about cats and Christmas trees that doesn’t fit. Especially when your cat is knocking your tree over for the fifth time in the middle of the night, leaving your ornaments shattered on the floor, as you are trying to pry your cat from the branches. This is the biggest challenge for cat-owners this Christmas season.
Having this eternal battle in mind, Cole and Marmalade are surprisingly well-behaved in this video. Marmalade is definitely the tree-climber of the two, but even he doesn’t cause any major disasters. Nonetheless the end result is hilarious!
At the beginning of the video, owner admits that he is a little bit scared to unpack all his Christmas ornaments and decorations and put them on the holiday tree, knowing he will have to put up with his cats and the entire process will end up in disaster. Here goes nothing!
Sneaky Marmalade was dying for her owner to start assembling the curious-looking tree for her to flaunt them climbing skills. However, her owner knew better and anticipated the holiday catastrophe, but put out the tree just for fun before eventually putting it away again.
While Cole prefers the actually cat tree, Marmalade is very curious about the fancy Christmas tree that shines brightly. She even tried to place herself as a giant ornament in the middle of the tree, after climbing with delight and testing her balance!
If you have cats for pets you sure know the struggle of putting up a Christmas tree and crossing your fingers, hoping to last as long as possible. Actually, you need to be strategic about it! The best way to protect your Christmas tree is to put it in a room where your cats don’t have access to. If your house isn’t set up in a way that this is possible, choose your decorations very carefully and consider securing your tree in multiple places to prevent tip-overs. Smart, right!
Try to avoid tinsel, because it can cause intestinal blockages that require surgery in case your cat swallows it. The same goes for ornaments that your cat may be tempted to chew on. And never leave your tree’s lights plugged in unless you’re home to supervised. Neat tips!
