i would like to put up a christmas tree but we have 5 cats in the house that spend the night playing and chasing each other thoughout the frontroom and would more than likely use the tree as a climbing post like they did about three years ago.

I have 5 cats too ! I have not put a tree up in years, it doesn't bother me that it is not up. 2 of the furbabies are 9 months old , and really chase each other etc.

I don't have a tree, but I have a lot of decorations and gifts around, so I don't miss one.

Here's a picture of a four-foot Santa that my brother found next to the dumpster after Christmas, a couple of years ago. Absolutely pristine condition! (my neighbors toss out the darndest things). We rescued him.

He looks out my front door.

I can't believe someone would just throw that away!! How foolish! They could have at least sold it on craigslist or ebay...very easily I'm sure!

I remember our cats always climbing up the tree and as well several times getting stuck!! Crazy cats! Gotta love em!

We are still able to fool with cut trees. Right now, we are in between crops of raising our own Christmas trees. With the droughts and how slowly blue spruces grow, this last crop may out live us. This year we went to a cut your own farm and got this specimen. I predict I will have no problem eventually going over to artificial trees
