She convinced me to go with a real tree this year. With five cats in the house, including one kitten, the tree and the whole house was a mess the day after we put it up. Usually we wait until New Year's Day to take the tree down, but I couldn't wait and took it to the dumpster this morning. Everyone knows that a cut, live tree isn't gonna live no matter much sugar water you give it. Next week I'll buy a good fake tree at a huge discount and never again buy a real one. Why type of tree did you have?
