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.
Even though cats are mainly evil, sometimes they can be cute.I mean, look at them in their little Santa hats. Apparently, cats love Christmas more than you would think.
Twitter user Alli McDonald posted this lovely photo of her Christmas tree:It might be hard to see at first, but her cat is in there somewhere. Can you spot him?
There he is!

Every year we put the Christmas tree up for about 5 minutes. Then we take it down again. https://t.co/9AaO99Gktv— Susan Calman (@Susan Calman)1543827344.0

ConfusedThis cat is confused but also so full of wonder at being in this Christmas tree. It's like someone wandering the streets of Las Vegas.

Joy to the worldThis cat looks simultaneously terrified that he's gotten himself stuck and terrified that he loves this so much he'll never want to come out.
