How can I keep my cat out of the Christmas tree?
i put a low garden wire fence around the base of the tree and cover it with an inexpensive red plastic tablecloth. I put the gifts inside the fench beforehand. it looks cute and prevents the cats fom chewing the tree,climbing or tearing the wrapped gift. People always comment to me on the solution
It's been years and years since I had a dog, but the last one I had (a German Shorthair Pointer) loved nothing better during the season than to knock the tree down and drag it through the house - even a 6' fully decorated tree. So we had to put the tree where it could be anchored to two hook in the wall so he coudn't knock it down. That didn't mean he stopped trying, though. One of my friends has a pug who loves to climb up into the tree (albeit just the lower branches) and go to sleep.
the cat has to be in a different room that the only thing that works or off to the borders
hey the only thing that works is put the tree in a room the cat does not go in or send them off to a border till you take the tree down
Pepper will not deter most cats from climbing the tree - they'll sneeze but keep going because the temptation is too great.
I just put my tree in a room with doors that close. Keeps the animals and the stuff on or under the tree safe. If I feel some need to look at the tree, I can open said doors and go in that room.
Stop torturing your cat! She couldn't possibly read your minds & know she wouldn't be hurt! There are humane ways to train a cat--smarten up!
Where is the info about what to sprinkle around your Christams tree to deter your Cat ? You must have hidden it somewhere here ,but I cannot find it....good editing fellas !JC
Try the slide show - it's there for a reason.
We save the pretty glass ornaments for the higher levels of the tree. Toward the bottom we us plastic and wooden ones which they can feel free to bat around. I also try to put the gift bags on a table out of their way. A box or bed under the tree and my cats are happy campers!
Good job. That is what my family does with our cats. It is humane and the glass ornaments are safe.
I thought this was a website for all pet and animal lovers?
And your point is...?
