Oh NO! Never! No!! ROTFL at the prospect of putting a lovely Christmas Tree like this in MY house. I love the design. I love the creativity. AND - I can see the excited looks in the eyes of my cats. Better than catnip! Two windowsills from which to stage their attacks. Dangling Christmas ornaments to to swing gaily as they're batted by happy paws. The ultimate crash of the ornaments against the window sills or fall to the fall. Kitties would think this the best Christmas gift EVER!
