Why climb a scratching post when you can climb an indoor tree?

Cats are always plotting something. Their curiosity and mischievous nature lands them in many awkward situations.

Sometimes that situation involves a Christmas tree.

So it's not surprising that there are a plethora of photos of cats in Christmas trees. We've put together a list of some of our favorites. Enjoy.

When you catch the cat thinking about it.

When the cat gets caught creeping on you and bae.

When you enlist feline help to get the star on top.

Too cute. I'm not even mad. #catsinchristmastrees

When you watch the mind of a planning cat at work.

When the cat insists on checking every bulb before throwing the strand of lights out. 

When the cat shows you how he feels about you going with a fake tree this year.

When you've looked everywhere for the cat and then you find him napping on a branch.

He found his new favorite chill spot??#catsinchristmastrees

Cat logic: we might never understand it, but we sure do get a kick out if it.
