well, i don't put up a tree at all, so it's not a big deal to me. however, i also don't have kids or grandkids! they might object!
My kitty, Stormy, started climbing up our tree the minute it was put up. I got the spray bottle and sprayed some water at her and she ran away from it. I had to watch her closely, but after a few days, she's leaving it alone. She hates the water in her eyes! You might try that...good luck!
Forgot to mention that I was spraying her in the tree before it was decorated. After I got it decorated, whenever she headed toward the tree, I'd get the bottle and she'd back off.
swat the kitty on the butt every single time or get a spray bottle & squirt, but do it every single time you see the cat messing around w/ the tree... that's what I had to do w/ LiL MaN! He forgets once in a while, but I remind him. I don't hurt my cats by no means, they're spoiled if anything, but I make them mind, too!
I just now read Cheryl's comments... it really does work! =)
That can be so frustrating. My daughter has two dogs, and when she came home today, they had chewed up several of the boxes under the tree. Her dogs spent the evening out I do believe.
