Christmas five years ago our cat Peanut was only five months old and as you can see in these photo's he destroyed our Christmas tree. I swear to you this tree was totally decorated.Here he is finishing the job and removing the last couple bulbs. The next thre years I bought real trees thinking they would stand up to him better. After the first year though he seemed mildly interested removing only an occasional decoration. The last picture is Peanut in a shoe box. Someone got a new pair of shoes and the next thing we knew there he was napping in the box. He looked so dorky we had to get a picture.
Last year we went back an artificial tree. The live trees I bought for two years were beautiful Fraziers that hang on to their needles real well I really loved them. But with the last live tree when I dismantled it I found burn marks on the branches and I use the cool lights. Maybe a short in the wiring? I don't know but that was a enough warning for me. Every Christmas we have too many tragic house fires here in the NE for me ignore that warning. Better safe than pretty it's back to the artificial for us.
