Most cats love Christmas. There's ribbon to chase, wrapping paper to shred and all those boxes to hide in. And then there's the tree.

With tinsel to bat, ornaments to swat and branches to climb, the Christmas tree just might be a cat's favorite part of the holidays.

If you’re in need of a little holiday spirit, don’t miss these adorable photos of festive felines in, on and under Christmas trees.
