Cats are known to play with Christmas trees and low hanging ornaments, potentially knocking them over and breaking things, so this company got creative with a 6 foot tall tree with branches that start 3 feet off the ground! Not gonna lie, it looks pretty goofy but honestly not as bad as I thought it would. I could definitely see this being useful for people with pets! This will be my first Christmas with two dogs. They are still puppies but are already huge, 80 pounds each, so we we worried more about them knocking into the tree than pawing at it. We will be setting a 4 foot tree on one of our end tables that they are already used to and stay away from. What's your method of dealing with pets and Christmas trees?
