Cat proof level: over 9000.

A household is not complete during the holiday season unless there's a Christmas tree present. Christmas morning just doesn't feel the same without a bright decorated tree welcoming you. With that said, not every household has the ability to maintain a nice Christmas tree — specifically ones with pets living in them.

Whether you own a cat or a dog, there's something about Christmas trees and the shiny ornaments that always intrigue them. Sometimes they'll jump into the tree, other times they'll knock it over, and if you're really unfortunate, they'll eat your tree! And it's because of this that pet owners have gotten more and more creative every year with ways to pet-proof their trees. Check out some of the best ways to protect your tree below.
