A Tip For Keeping Your Kitten From Climbing The Christmas Tree

Cats are climbers by nature.  So the first time a new kitten sees the beautifully decorated Christmas tree, they have one thing on their minds. To climb it as fast as possible. This can cause a disaster! There is something you can do to keep kitty away for your beautiful tree.

Did you know that cats hate the smell of orange? They have a major aversion to the scent of the oil. So if you don’t mind a little organic clutter under the tree, spread orange peels under the base of the tree. This will work if kitty climbs up the base of the tree. If your kitty prefers to jump right onto the branches, you can make orange and clove ornaments and hang them on the tree. Stick whole cloves into oranges or tangerines and hang a few them on the lower branches of the tree. It’s one of the quickest and easiest things to do but unfortunately, it may not always work. It is worth a try before trying anything more complicated.

Good luck!

Remember, your pets count!
