Christmas is about warmth, family, light, presents, good meals, hot chocolate, cookies and sweets, and being jolly. Cats are all about being aloof, standoffish, moody, sharp-clawed, and allergy-inducing. (Can you tell I’m a dog person?) While some cats may get into the holiday spirit, I think it is more the cat type of spirit to ruin your holiday joy. They pounce all over and tear your tree to bits. That is what cats are good at.
When you have a cat, you know that your household decorations are never safe from the feisty claws of your feline friend. So when the holidays roll around, and it’s time to put up your Christmas tree, you have to contend with the fact that your cat might take over. It might destroy your tree and all the ornaments in it. Or it might make the tree its new home.
