Beautiful Cat-Safe Alternatives To Traditional Christmas Trees

Christmas trees and cats can be a dangerous combination. Climbing the tree can cause it to topple, tree water that contains preservatives can be toxic, tinsel can clog digestive systems, and ornaments are basically fragile cat toys. So what’s the best way for cat owners to safely celebrate the holidays?

These people found clever ways to create beautiful alternatives to the classic Christmas tree that are more pet-friendly than a tree on the floor.

Hanging your Christmas tree from the ceiling way is one way to guarantee it won’t topple over!

Don’t want the hassle of hanging a Christmas tree? Make an invisible one!

Not enough room in your apartment for a three-dimensional tree of any kind? Why not build a flat tree on the wall?

And if all else fails, a cat-friendly Christmas tee quilt hung on the wall with care works great, too!

Happy holidays from iHeartCats!
