Cats and ChristmasTrees

December 22nd, 2009 · No Comments · Cat Furniture

Why does a cat go up a tree in the first place? There are several reasons why cats climb trees, mostly to do with predatory or defensive tactics. Cats climb trees at times to get a better view of their surroundings, to help them see any potential dangers or potential pray. It may be that cats climb trees for fun, on occasion, or possibly to work on improving their climbing abilities. Kittens frequently test out their claw skills by trying to climb up anything and everything, from bookcases to trees to your leg. Climbing practice is good for cats; it can improve their strength and flexibility and teach them an important defensive skill. To prevent them from practicing indoor climbing of your Christmas Tree, however, you may wish to purchase a carpeted cat tree for climbing, and feel less guilty warning them away from your beautifully decorated Christmas Tree.
