Oh decisions, Decisions, should I not put my tree up this year (two new very active wee kittens have joined the house) or put the tree up in the front bedroom where I can close the door but it will not be visible from the public rooms or do that and move it when I am in doors for any length on time ..or put it up regardless and let the kittens trash it daily ????

Nice Tree MH.
