3. Call me after Santa arrives

This cute little kitty has found herself a snug spot right in the middle of the tree and she's not coming out until it's time to open her presents! Let's hope she's been a good girl this year!

4. The call of the wild

Despite thousands of years of domestication, a feline never really forgets where it comes from. The Christmas tree is clearly bringing out the jungle cat in this household kitty.

5. It wasn't us!

Sorry guys! You might be cute, but nobody's buying your story that the tree fell over by itself. You've been caught red-pawed! But we promise we won't tell Santa Claus!

6. I'll just wait this one out

In this short clip, it looks like the old cat/dog rivalry has kicked off again. But the barking dog has got no chance of catching this tree-dwelling kitty. The only question is, how long will he have to stay up there until the pooch loses interest?

7. A cat is what a cat does

Cats love climbing Xmas trees, but does anyone really know why? Well, according to experts, cats descended from a tree-dwelling animal called a Proailurus. They went extinct about 25miilion years ago, but their spirit clearly lives on!
