15 Cats Who’ve Never Met A Tree They Didn’t Want To Nap In

Cats have a natural tendency to climb trees.

Some felines do it to get a better view of their surroundings, while others climb so they can pounce on their unsuspecting prey more easily. Clingier cats simply want to get their human’s attention, and balancing on a thin branch 20 feet in the air usually does the trick. No matter the reason, they sure look cute when they get up close and personal with nature.
