2020 may not have been a great year overall due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it hasn’t affected anyone’s Christmas spirit! Come December, most people have their Christmas trees up.
But, things are a little complicated for kitty owners.
You see, cats and Christmas trees don’t really get along. Cats love climbing on Christmas trees, and love to knock them down—among other things.
In this blog post, we will answer the question, “How to keep cats out of Christmas Tree?” in detail.
How to Keep Cats Out of Christmas Tree: Here are Some Ways
In this section of the blog post, we will go over some ways in which you can keep your kitty out of the Christmas tree.
Secure the Christmas Tree
If you have pets at home, it’s always a good idea to secure your Christmas tree to a piece of plywood in order to avoid accidental toppling. The Christmas tree can severely injure your pet if it were to fall on them.
So, it’s best to stay safe.
Securing the Christmas tree won’t keep your cat out of it, but it sure will help with damage control.
Use a Deterrent
The best way to keep your cat out of the Christmas tree is to use a deterrent to keep your curious feline away. You can use commercial feline deterrent sprays or make one at home.
Placing orange peels around the Christmas tree is also helpful.
Get Your Cat a Christmas Tree of Her Own
Some cats are instinctively attracted to trees while others don’t care about them too much. If your cat refuses to get off your Christmas tree, you can get your kitty her own tree!
Try to use deterrents on your Christmas tree and encourage your cat to be on her Christmas tree by making it more appealing–you can try pheromone sprays and catnip.
Distraction can be a powerful tool.
Keep Your Cat Away from the Christmas Tree
Finally, if all else fails, you can create a physical barrier between your cat and the Christmas tree by not allowing your kitty to be around the tree. You can restrict your cat’s movements to certain rooms instead of letting her have free access to the entire house.
