Cat Advice Wanted - STAT!

Well, the tree is up - and so is my dearest sweetest Pumpkin - up in the tree!!


I am having a little thing on Tuesday where people will be coming in part to see our already lame decorations - and now I am puzzled as to how I am going to decorate the tree other than with our soft handmade ornaments that are not very showy...

Any advice?

MB read about a machine that makes a noise to deter the cats. From what I can tell it is rather pricey. Spray bottle water is not making much difference, nor is the remote control monster truck located behind the tree... 

Any and all suggestions are welcome!

Get a dog. Any dog will do but a labrador will never ever touch the tree unless you line it with food.
Mine smelled it and walked away. Every year. :-)

Stick a bell on her neck and call her a decoration. (A TREE? In the HOUSE?? And I'm not supposed to CLIMB it??? How much fun is that?????"

It's a challenge, and the more you fight it, the more she'll want to be in the tree. Just use decorations that won't be destroyed if they fall off... and maybe consider tethering the tree to a wall so it doesn't fall.

The good news is that when Pumpkin matures, she'll be a little less adventurous.

Ha ha, this brings back memories of both our cats climbing up the Christmas tree.

Sorry I shouldn't laugh.
