A cat we had a long time ago liked to climb up in the trees and go to sleep. She disappeared 1 December and we couldn't find her anywhere. Finally, after her nap, she decided to come out of the tree. Always knew were to look for her after that.

Some people (like we do) have cat trees in their homes. You, on the other paw, had a tree cat.

LOL!

We just don't have a tree, I got tired of fixing it back upright and replacing the ornaments everyday.

We have a new cat, so time will tell.

In years gone by, we have had a tree....and we had the tree saver (squirt bottle) near by just in case...

I don't know why other cat owners don't have Christmas trees, but I don't have one for two reasons:

1. It is July

2. I am a Buddhist

Monkey climbed our Christmas tree, but then being a cat named Monkey I guess it comes pretty naturally!

Tree savers only work if you are home to catch them, at some point both of us were working the same shifts and days, so the brats were unattended.

That's why we got a fibre-optic tree that doesn't need ornaments or added lights. Ignore the music.
