Argos Is Selling Half Christmas Trees For Cat Owners
Cats are extremely cute, but they can be a nightmare when it comes to Christmas decorations. A quick search on YouTube and you can see why - our small furry friends love playing with baubles, tinsel and fairy lights, which inevitably means they don't stay on the tree for long.
So if you're a cat owner but still want a Christmas tree, Argos might have just the thing for you. The company is selling a six-foot tree which is only a half parasol, meaning playful cats can't get their paws on the decorations.
The Home 6ft Half Parasol Christmas Tree's online product description reads: "Keep your perfectly placed baubles, bows and bells out of reach of curious, crawling kids or your cats' playful paws with this 6ft parasol tree.
"If Santa's been extra generous, there's plenty of room to stack pressies underneath rather than scattering them around it. It's also a great alternative to the traditional tree if you're a tad tight for space."
It's currently on sale on the Argos website for £33.33.
You could also try a wall-mounted tree to prevents cats and dogs from getting to them.
Amazon is selling a three-feet wall-mounted tree from around £30.
Having a cat is always entertaining, although scratched furniture and early breakfast wake-up calls can be a little frustrating from time to time.
According to experts, though, owning a pet can be good for your wellbeing.
Dr Danielle Forshee, a licensed clinical social worker and a doctor of psychology, says having a cat and talking to your pet has health benefits.
She claims that when talking with your pet you develop and sustain a bond that's healthy for the both of you, as it has a positive impact on your mental health.
Dr Forshee also believes that owning a pet helps fight depression and can even prevent heart disease and help to lower blood pressure.
Her studies have shown that communicating with a pet cat or dog can control stress better than the drug usually used to treat high blood pressure.
