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!

Welcome to #bandfchristmas home… it’s indeed the most wonderful time of the year. #upsidedownchristmastree #hangingchristmastree #bedifferent #showstopper

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

I wanted something different this year so I did an invisible hanging Christmas tree. It was tedious but turned out so cute!!! #naturallyorz #invisiblechristmastree #hangingchristmastree #christmastree #ornamenttree

Not completely done… But I couldn’t wait to post a video.. Made out of cardboard, fishing line, and copious amounts of hot glue #DIY #ChristmasTree #HangingChristmasTree #SneakPeak

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

When you live in a tiny house and there’s not much room for your big Christmas tree, you hang it on the wall! #tinyhouse #tinyhouseliving #tinychristmastree #hangingchristmastree #christmas2017 #christmastime #keepchristinchristmas

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

Happy holidays from iHeartCats!
