What would Christmas be without the beloved and highly ornate Evergreen tree? Without it, where would Santa leave his presents? Keeping your Christmas decorations safe and sound until the gifts come is an easy task if you live in a pet-less household, but if you're an owner to an evil cat named Mr. Mittens or a funny dog named Scruffy, it might become a mission impossible.

From your point of view, the Christmas tree is almost sacred - you've spent at least a couple of hours searching for the perfect ornaments, then a couple more decorating it and a couple more admiring the final result. From your pets point of view, you've just set up a fantastic scratching post, high-jump training area or a snack bar, depending on the given critters taste. Anyways, what follows next is a destroyed tree lying on the floor with broken Christmas tree decorations all over the place with a culprit of it all being the funny cat, revenging on you naming him Mr. Mittens. The good news is that with simple hacks shown in the pictures below, it's no longer necessary for you to choose between having a pet OR having a fabulous Christmas tree.

Now go ahead and check our collection of ideas on cat-proof Christmas trees!

I'm fairly sure the tree isn't going to last long up on the ceiling either

I think this is a really good apartment tree idea. I'm going to do this. Beats a tiny tree on a table.

At first glance, i thought that middle thing was a cat paw reaching up, and started to laugh, then immediately realized it wasn't, and felt disappointed. Such a vast array of emotions in such a short time.
