Cats and Christmas Trees aren't usually the best combination. I mean, it makes sense...

A Christmas Tree is essentially a HUGE cat toy, so I can see why cats are so intrigued by them. The tree itself is like a scratching post. Plus, it's covered in bright lights (have you seen cats go after laser pointers?) as well as brightly colored ornaments and garland. And we all know the old saying about curiosity and cats...

If you have a cat and a Christmas Tree, you probably know the struggle. I was lucky with my cat Twinkie, in that he cared more about sleeping on the tree skirt rather than climbing up the tree and playing with all it's baubles. But others aren't so lucky. Check out the videos below of the hilarious and ADORABLE interactions between cats and Christmas Trees. I especially love the instances where the cat ends up knocking down the tree and then just runs off and nonchalantly starts cleaning itself. Like "What? I didn't do anything..."
