Real OR Fake? - Page 2

post #31 of 42
We put up a live tree. A friend has a tree farm, and since he already has them cut, I don't feel as guilty as I should.

I love the smell of the live tree, and so do the cats. They were pretty good about not climbing the tree we had last year. When Faile was a kitten, I caught her in the tree a few times though.

But Jugen.. that would make a purrrfect "caption this" photo!!!

I can agree with the majority.. in saying I really do love the real trees.. but I hate the thought of chopping one down just to display in the house for a couple weeks.. but i will probably end up doing it anyway... I mean.. they do keep planting them year by year.. for this purpose.. my boyfriend is also allergic to trees.. which.. hmm.. i should really compensate to that.. but.. sigh.. what to do. I am making some outdoor wreaths on the weekend with just some bows from the trees which should give me that nice tree smell throughout the house. I just don't have the $$ to buy a tree this time of year! maybe after christmas when they all go on sale. They're just too perfect too. i like my trees to have character! Where there is a gap, fill with a big ornament! I don't know how the gurls are going to react to the tree this year.. LOL should be interesting.. Their cat post is around the same height as a tree... hope they don't get confused and start climbing throughout, eating my ornaments!!!

Can we rename this thread - as soon as I saw something saying Real or Fake - I had my hopes up about what it may be about,..I had Pamela Anderson on my mind. I was seriously optimistic there!

With the poll title I thought you were asking about sertain body parts!

We have a fake treee due to allergies and the fact we want to protect the cats from the needles and the water for the tree!

I thought this was going to be about fur...

But since I came in....

Fake tree. I don't like the thought of a tree being cut down purely for decorating and letting it die after the festive season. I'd rather see trees being planted permanently in rehabilited zones of land.....*sigh*....

I think I've turned into a greenie without realising it.

No tree here-I have a small apartment and a very nosy cat.

I do get my real tree fix when I go home to visit Dad, however (the trees come from a local farm dedicated to Christmas trees). He's got his ornaments very well organized, so that all the soft and cat-safe ornaments go on the bottom (Dad's cat Pumpkin thinks the tree is her personal playground) while the glass and ceramic ornaments go up high.

No tree for me. My cats would knock it over. I put a wreath on my door, but most of my decorating is done at work.

Can't have a tree around here with all the Kitties!!
I used to have a small living Norfolk Pine that I decorated for Christmas, but the Kitties did that in.

I was raised having a real tree every year . . . so I still prefer a real one!

FAKE!!! No way would I ever cut down a tree to use just for my enjoyment. I could never do that...I'm too much of a nature lover. Plus fake last forever.

I have a fake one but I like real ones better. They just look more beautiful to me.
I agree, it is hard to justify cutting down so many trees to use for christmas and then throw away
My tree is in storage, I am supposed to get it out tomorrow! I can't wait!
