If you have a cat, keeping him out of your Christmas tree is a necessity. Your cat may be able to jump from a couch or window sill and reach your tree. It’s also possible that he might chew on the wires of your tree, which can be dangerous to your cat. Luckily, there are a few ways to keep your cat out of your tree, even if your cat is a naughty little cat.
One way to discourage your cat from climbing the tree is to anchor it to a wall. You can use a sturdy piece of fishing line. Then, tie it to curtain rods or nails in studs. This way, you don’t have to worry about the tree falling over.
Another way to keep your cat out of your Christmas tree is to unplug the lights. This will prevent your cat from becoming electrocuted. However, you should be careful to unplug the lights before your cat gets too close.
Another great idea is to cover the electrical cords with covers. You can buy these at the pet store or make your own. Once the cord is covered, place it on the end of a plugging wire. This will keep your cat from getting a hold of the cord.
A few tips to keep your cat out of your Christmas tree include: placing the tree in a safe location, securing it, using a deterrent spray, and avoiding the use of artificial decorations. If you want to add some decorations, you can purchase bells, oranges, and citrus rinds that will repel cats. You can also hang your ornaments in the center of the tree, instead of hanging them all over the tree. Be sure that the ornaments aren’t food-related or they could cause your cat to get sick.
You can also discourage your cat from launching itself on your tree by putting it in a room with an interesting, enclosed area. If you don’t have a room with a door, you can put it in a corner of the house that your cat cannot access. In addition, you can install a fence or other perimeter around your tree to keep it out of your cat’s way.
Another great tip to keep your cat out of your Christmas tree involves hanging dried citrus rinds around the bottom of the tree. The odor from the rinds will dissuade your cat from pounce. You can also purchase cat repellent oils to put on the limbs of the tree. You can also sprinkle a little bitter apple in the bottom of the tree, which will smell a bit like a pine cone. This won’t leave a strong odor on your cat’s nose, but it will still keep him away from the tree.
If you have a real tree, you should use a tree skirt to avoid your cat from reaching the bottom of the tree. You can also wrap aluminum foil around the trunk of the tree. The foil makes a crinkling sound that your cat will hate. Hopefully, this will keep your cat out of your Christmas tree and away from your house.
