With shiny ornaments and colorful, flashing lights, Christmas trees can be tempting to curious kitties. Of course if a cat gets into your Christmas tree, it’s liable to knock it down, break fragile ornaments, or endanger their own lives by swallowing tinsel.

If you want to put up a Christmas tree, take care to keep your cat away. Some people put up barriers around the tree while others place ornaments higher up the tree to keep the cat from getting tempted.
