Hello everyone! Today I would like to talk with you about Christmas+Cats= …..
For those who have cats, you may know what I’m talking about. Sometimes, Christmas time can be kind of a nightmare for cat owners. The cat jumping into the tree, playing with and destroying the presents under the tree, eating some ribbons (and so making you going in emergency to the vet 🙄)… The list of struggles could be longer. In my family we have met some of these and now that our naughtiest cats are older and the younger ones less naughty (at least on this matter), we do have less problems. But we still have some experience in saving Christmas from cats. 😅 Let me share with you some hacks and advices. I hope it’ll be useful to some of you.
Let’s get started!
#1 Rather use a real tree, than a fake one. Why? Because a fake tree doesn’t hurt, while a real one does, if the cat jumps into it. The cat will notice that and so find another entertainment, instead of jumping on the tree and make it fall down. And it’s more sustainable than a plastic tree! Win-win solution!
#2 Attach your tree to something, a nail in the wall, the window and so on, so it’ll be more secure, in case your cat insists on being a tree flea and jumping on it.
#3 Avoid any fragile ornaments. Or at least, place them in cat-safe places. Rather use ornaments that don’t break (I’ll give you ideas soon for cat-safe decorations, stay tuned!)
#4 If you’re like us and like to place presents under the tree as the days go by until Christmas Eve, make sure they don’t get destroyed. A few years ago, we had to wait until Christmas Eve to place the presents under the tree as we didn’t want them to get destroyed by our cats. Now it’s not the case, they don’t destroy that much. But if your cats are that naughty, I would suggest you to wait until the last moment. No one likes a bitten, eaten and destroyed present.
#5 Do not use paper ribbons for wrappings and so on,as they are too tempting for kitties. They will surely want to suck and eat them, which is quite dangerous for them. Again,no one likes going to the vet, especially during Christmas time. Rather use big fabric ribbons for example, these solutions are less dangerous for them.
That’s it for my advices on combining Christmas and cats. I hope that these are useful for you. Do you have any other advices on this subject? I would love to hear them!
Anyway, that’s all for today’s post. I hope you like it.
