Who isn't attracted by a
beautifully-decorated Christmas tree?
But for cats, Christmas trees are irresistible
in a whole different way.
Christmas trees bring out the criminals in them.
Even when cats are little angels,
they are little devils.
Predictably, of course, consumer culture
has to cash in on this phenomenon.
But don't worry! You need not
have a tree like this to thwart a cat!
You simply have to co-opt the furry little menaces!
And just for the record, dogs are
not necessarily trustworthy around trees either!
I was very lucky that Her Royal Highness
always left my Christmas tree alone.
In her 17 years with me, she never tried
to climb it and only ever broke
one Christmas ornament.
