I have two cats and two kittens, they are really very adorable, and love playing around the house, since, christmas is coming, my children and i decided to put up our christmas tree, we really have fun putting up christmas tree and decorations, but our cats had more fun that us, because after we have put up our christmas tree, they played on the christmas balls and other decorations in it. And the saddest part is that they played over under and in our christmas tree that makes our christmas tree fall down and never go up again. Now, we don't have our christmas tree at home, maybe we just have to celebrate christmas without christmas tree instead. =(

So what? What is bigger than joy? I mean the cats have played and enjoyed. You have watched them and enjoyed. So everyone has been happy. Then what more do you expect from Christmas!

Hi prasanta, I think she is just expressing and sharing her experience here on myLot. She enjoyed watching, the cats enjoyed playing... they don't have Christmas tree and that's it. I can't see any resentment towards the cat, or the fact that they don't have any Christmas tree at home now or whatever. Maybe just sharing it here

wooh... That was terrible. Maybe the kittens like the Christmas balls and the tree also. I really love to have cat or kitten but unfortunately my father won't agree. Have a great Christmas celebration.

Yes, christmas tree and cats don't mix,lol! You need to put something under the tree or on the tree that will deter them so they won't be pulling it down. Cats hate orange oil and deodorant, especially moth balls. The problem is, moth balls smell terrible, but at least the orange oil won't. Try that and see if it works.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I have decided not to put my christmas tree up again. Maybe I will try that next year. =)

Yeah, that's what I did, I allow them to play and don't put another tree either. I just gave them my christmas balls to play with... =)

Hi Gabs They must have thought it was their toys hanging on the tree, so they were trying to get those balls I think you have to buy them some toys so if you decide to buy a new one and put another tree, their attention would be with the new toys they have. I really had a good laugh reading this But sad to know you're not gonna have your tree this Christmas.

Hahaha..yeah, they think the balls in our christmas tree is their new toys, I do have toys for them to play, but they really have fun jumping and playing around my tree. BUt its ok, we love our cats, and we enjoy watching them playing around the house. =)

I'm really sorry that you couldn't put up your tree again, bb_gabs! I'm sure your cute and adorable furry friends didn't mean to ruin your Christmas. They are just being playful. It must have been really fun and heartwarming to see the kittens wrestle, sneak-up and pounce on each other. We still have time for Christmas. Is it possible to get another tree just in time? The room always seems to be a lot cozier with the presence of a Christmas tree.

Hahaha..you are right julian, thats what I also think, they don't mean to ruin our christmas tree and they don't really ruined our christmas either. Me and my kids love our furry friends and can spend christmas without a christmas tree, but we cannot celebrate christmas without our little cute furry friends... =)
