This shop's selling 'Parsol Christmas Trees' so your cat can't destroy them

trending 30/11/2018

Only cat owners will know the fear of excitedly putting up your Christmas decorations and making them look PERFECT, only to have that little demon you call a kitty tear them down minutes later. 

Clearly the peeps behind UK store Argos have experienced this torture firsthand, because they're now selling specially designed 'half Christmas trees' to keep your kitty's claws away from low-hanging baubles and tinsle.

The product's description says the 6-foot tree will "keep your perfectly placed baubles, bows and bells out of reach of curious, crawling kids or your cats' playful paws." Where has this been all our lives?!

"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."

Knowing cats though, they'll probably find a way to destroy the tree anyway because you know, they're determined little guys and love to ruin everything you've worked hard on. But it's worth a shot!
