After being caught napping in the Christmas tree branches, a sneaky cat surprised her owner. She was perfectly disguised among the decorations.  

Moon, a cute pet named after Sarah Nelson-McGuinness (42), lives in Liverpool and loves Christmas trees.

As she nestled between the fairy lights and ornaments in the tree branches, her 15-month-old kitten vanished.

Moon rumbled only after Freddo, Luna and Luna, the other family cats, were seen staring up at the tree.

“I glanced up to find out why they were so interested in Moon and found her curled up sleeping.

‘I took her out which she didn’t appreciate, she’s only small and it’s an 8ft tree so I was worried she may fall and get hurt.’

Moon was not the first to be caught up in this festive decor.

Sarah actually switched from her usual white Christmas tree to a traditional green this year, in an effort to find the cat.

She said, “We purchased Moon right before Christmas 2020 so that we would have the same issue last Year.” 

“Last year, it was harder because she was so tiny and the tree was white.

“I thought this would make it easier because she’s bigger than the tree and easier to see, but I was wrong.

She is great at hiding.

‘Moon is constantly in the tree, she likes to be at the top so she can spy on us all, but she makes sure she’s well hidden so I don’t spot her and lift her out or make her come down.
