If you feel Christmas would not be the same without your cat to share it, use these tips to minimize their risk around the Christmas tree.
Step 1: Set up the tree
Put your tree in its stand, but leave it undecorated for a few days so your cat can get used to it. Be sure to place the tree in a heavy stand, and anchor it to the ceiling or a wall.
Step 2: Decorate the tree
Decorate the tree, leaving the lowest area free of decorations for the first few days. Add decorations to the bottom of the tree after the cat has gotten used to the higher ones.
Hang the ornaments with ribbons rather than hooks, and do not use tinsel. Use heavy ornaments that do not dangle.
Step 3: Coat electrical cords
Coat electrical cords with with a non-toxic chew deterrent to discourage your cat from biting them.
Hide electrical cords by threading them through PVC tubing.
Step 4: Add a scratching post
Place a scratching post near the tree along with some kitty greens. Make it so that everyone, including your feline friend, will enjoy a green Christmas.
