I gave my Christmas tree to a tiger!

Unfortunately, it's time to take down my Christmas decorations.  I have always loved Christmas and usually wait for it all year.  I love the joy and happiness it brings to people and their families, and the giving spirit that comes with the season. Most of the time, it's just a happy time of year!

But, alas, all of the cookie and chocolate eating needs to stop and all of the live Christmas trees need to go somewhere. I live in an apartment with a roommate, so I knew the tree would need to go sometime soon. I loved my tree from Twin Pines Nursery and had a really hard time getting rid of it since it was still so beautiful! 

So, in the bed of the teal tacoma it went...not to the dumpster, but to a tiger.

Yes. You heard me right. A tiger.

There is a place in Chatham County, North Carolina called Carolina Tiger Rescue that rescues wildcats.  Through the grapevine of gossip in small town Pittsboro, I learned that they take old donated Christmas trees and give them to the wildcats.  The wildcats play with these trees, use them as hideouts, and even toss them around.

Kind of funny...I know!
So, if you are looking for a place to dispose of your Christmas tree, drive down to Carolina Tiger Rescue and drop it off for the wildcats to play with.  While you're there, stop in, take a tour, and enjoy this lifelong sanctuary for wildcats! 

It's not every day that you get to see a tiger play with an old Christmas tree!
