With the festive season in full swing, many of us have begun decorating our homes and shopping for that all-important Christmas tree. For cat owners, however, this is typically a much harder task.
Anyone who has a feline friend at home will know just how much they love to fiddle with (and essentially ruin) the bottom of the Christmas tree.
You’ll also know how frustrating it feels to come home after a long day’s work to find your beloved festive tree decorations – which you spent hours perfecting, may we add – splattered across the floor because your cat couldn’t fight the tempting of playing your your lights and baubles.
Well finally, there’s a solution for your problem. Argos has released a new ‘half Christmas tree’ designed to be out of reach for naughty pets and crawling babies, and quite frankly, it sounds like the Christmas miracle all cat owners need.
The six foot tree only features voluminous green pine needles on the top half, while the bottom is just a decorative pole. Retailing at £33.33, the catalogue giant’s online listing 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.’
Genius, right? And if that wasn’t enough to get you in the Christmas spirit, we know something that certainly will. Aldi is selling a new salted caramel and baked apple gin liqueur that is set to be the Christmas drink of the moment. The alcoholic beverage is already so popular that more than 100 people added it to their basket within 24 hours. So make sure you grab a bottle while you can!
