I always feared the cords and bulbs. Dogs and Cats seem to like anything that is shiny.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... I've been very fortunate that I've never had a cat or a dog that has bothered my trees. The most my cats have done is sit under my cat tree.

Nina, that first picture with the cat in the tree -- that would be Lucy.   I would have to hang the tree from the ceiling, and believe she would still find a way to get to it.

Trees on top of cars? Do they still make real trees Nina Hollander, Broker ? Just kidding 😉. I have been lucky that none of my dogs ever bothered with a Christmas tree (that I am aware of).

Bob "RealMan" Timm hi Bob... lots of Christmas tree farms all over North Carolina and this state has contributed a number of trees to the White House and the national tree for many years. I haven't had a real tree in 23 years... I like to have mine up from December 1st till Russian Orthodox Christmas (Epiphany for us)... real trees don't last that long.

I think it's been even longer for me Nina Hollander, Broker . My favorite tree is the one I  take out of the box and the lights are already on it.

Bob "RealMan" Timm hi Bob... even those artificial trees need to be fluffed up coming out of a box and lights replaced from time to time.

Good tips, Nina, especially about the chocolate. When our Brittany went blind, that was the last of our tall Christmas trees. We went to tabletop trees.

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... it obviously could not have been easy dealing with a blind pet in the home; I've had some very elderly cats and dogs in my life but fortunately not any that were blind.

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist that is just so true, Kathleen. It's one of the reasons I usually post some pet safety tips around each big holiday... so easy to get distracted and forget about dangers to one's pets.
