It’s the most wonderful time of the year, that magical season where our cats revel in the fact that a tree now stands in the living room—the perfect place to hide before leaping out to pounce on guests or the dog. Resign yourself to the fact that your tree will be the cat’s favorite playground. But distract them from your ornaments and the ribbons on your gifts by giving them plenty of Christmas cat toys.
