Infographic: How Cats See Christmas

By Christy True
published: December 16, 2020 - updated: November 18, 2022 • 1 min. read

What is it about cats and Christmas? We humans labor to make everything perfect and beautiful – especially this year when most people are spending more time at home –  just to have our furry felines come in and wreck it all. The combination of a tree in the house, delicate shiny objects, and soft hanging stockings full of goodies just seem to be too much for playful pets to resist.

Warning: Do not leave cats unsupervised with any of these items. Trees can fall on them, broken ornaments can cut them, they can swallow ribbon, causing an obstruction, and plastic bags can suffocate. See our Holiday Pet Safety Tips.

Christy has been writing about pets for Healthy Paws for 21 dog years. She previously worked in journalism, hence her penchant for writing about offbeat animal studies and the latest viral pet trends. She has been owned by several dogs, and right now, Tomas, a Mexican street dog rescue, is staring at her because he wants a walk. Outside of work, she can usually be found sliding down a mountain near her home in Bend, Ore.
