Furthermore, it’s also important to ensure your cat remains safe over Christmas. Trees can be heavy and include numerous items a feline can get caught in. As a consequence, we took to CatHealth.com to find tips for preventing your cat friend from damaging your tree or itself.

Firstly, cat owners are advised to let the novelty of the Christmas tree wear off. To do this, people should not decorate their tree for a few days and just let it sit in the home. Kitty will get used to the tree in its territory and won’t go crazy when its time to decorate.

Steadiness is also important as a wobbly tree will be easily knocked over by a playful cat. A tree secured in its holder is less likely to collapse if kitty decides to jump on it. By the way, kitty will certainly want to jump on it so it’s best to be prepared.
