“The cat is ON the tree” or “The cat is IN the tree”?

“The cat is on the tree” or “the cat is in the tree” ?

Depends on where the cat is.

If the cat is sticking to the trunk of the tree low down or is standing on the trunk of a fallen tree, then it is “on the tree”. If it has climbed up into the leafy part of the tree, it is “in the tree”. So both are correct!

Isn’t English language fun? 🙂

Will somebody help that cat off the Christmas tree? 😀
