Hearing a story about a cat stuck in a tree is about as common as hearing a story about politicians being corrupt. It’s no surprise to anyone, but at least when a cat gets stuck in a tree, people are willing to do something about it.

Strangely, cats seem fascinated with trees, even if they risk getting stuck in them. Fortunately during the holidays, cats didn’t risk this problem because many of them simply climbed their family’s Christmas trees. Even if they got stuck at the top, it was relatively easy for anyone to pick them up and carry them back to the floor. If your cat has an urge to get itself trapped somewhere, there’s no better place than a Christmas tree safely in the cat owner’s house.
