When you have pets, especially cats or dogs, putting up your Christmas tree - and especially keeping it upright and ornate! - can be a daunting task.
Talk to those whose kitty made the tree fall on December 24th. Or those who buy only unbreakable Christmas balls ... hoping that their doggy will not eat them.
Do we need to give up on decorating a Christmas tree when we have pets? Should we write to Santa to explain the situation to him and beg him to leave us presents anyway, somewhere other than under the tree?
Some people have thought long and hard about this situation and have taken great measures to celebrate Christmas without wanting to strangle their faithful companions and without having to clean the "party zone" every day.
Maybe the following photos will inspire you with a new layout for your Christmas tree this year?
In any case, they may make you smile!
1. The caged Christmas tree
It is for his own good that this little tree is imprisoned! Thus, he will be able to remain alive throughout the entire holiday season!

Even if kitty tries to climb, she won't be able to reach this one!

3. The minimalist fir
Kitty (who does not look happy at all!) will not be able to damage him. Puppy, however, might feel the need to mark his territory...
4. The hanging holiday balls in the shape of a fir tree
An original and unreachable idea!
5. The tree that appears to pass through a video game portal
The question is then: who has a fox guarding their hen house?
6. Another type of fir tree cage
Even Santa Claus will not dare to enter it.
7. The fir tree - vacuum
We know that few animals like to approach this device while it is running ...
8. The Christmas cactus
If you go looking for trouble you'll find it!
9. The slightly bare Chrsitmas tree
No branches to climb!

10. The tree is in the pen
A variation on the same themes
11. The fir tree under plastic wrap
An original method, which has the advantage of putting away the tree, as is, every year!
12. The fir tree guards
These famous vacuum cleaners that frighten so well!
13. The half-decorated fir
The art of compromise in all its splendor!
14. Furniture used as a barrier
We make do with what we have!
15. The tree on the wall
This one should definitely not fall ...
16. The camouflaged fir tree...
Just don't forget it's a tree, unless you're the cat ...
17. The top perch
If kitty cannot climb up to there, the top of the fridge is a perfect place!
18. Suspended branches
The dog does not even seem to realize that this is a Christmas decoration.

19. The tree in a painting
20. Bags as a deterrent
Some animals do not like the sound of paper or plastic bags, so we can put some around the tree to deter them from approaching it.
21. The Christmas chandelier
22. The downwards treetop
The tree hanging from the ceiling has become more trendy for the past few years, whether or not you have four-legged companions at home.
23. Wall hanging
Another type of tree on the wall.
24. The barrier can also be decorated
So, we tend to forget it.
