We did have a great pre-lit tree when Red was a kitten and young cat and it spent the entire time doing the salsa which was most disconcerting as he scaled up the tree and concealed himself in the branches. Please excuse the poor quality pics, they are old ones AND most were 'action' shots! Also, the tree was definitely not dressed as badly as this initially but we grew weary of having to replace the decorations and tinsel.
This one with the tinsel tail is my favourite
"Eh..? Was that me you were shouting on......nah, couldn't be...!"
Two years ago I bought a pop-up tree for the ease of putting it up and down as, although I love Christmas, with work and care commitments I wanted an easy solution. This one was also very slim and I reckoned if I placed it correctly it might be less tempting...pah! It lasted exactly 17 hours, and this was only because the resident ginger tree mugger was in the bedroom overnight for most of that time. I'd wedged it between the radiator and the TV unit thinking this might save it unfortunately, Red climbed up inside it and used it as a hide for poking Magic as she lay on the radiator bed.
The tail might match the carpet but we can still see you...!
Innocent? Maybe not.
Poor Magic got no peace whatsoever......
...till she moved
Giving him the stink eye
This however, was a point of great relief when we could all stand down from our posts when he finally tired himself out.
So, although I want the tree up asap to bring sparkly Christmas cheer to the house for the first time since moving here, and could easily get a replacement pole/frame for the pop up tree if I can't find the original, my reservations remain about the fluffy tree assassin.
