Contrary to what seems to be an increasingly popular belief, you do not have to let your cat pull down your Christmas tree. None of the cats we’ve had ever attempted to climb the tree. Just put a couple of marbles inside an aluminum can and shake it whenever the cat gets too friendly with the tree. But with some cats you don’t even have to do that. They just naturally don’t pull down the Christmas tree.
As for putting Santa hats or reindeer antlers on the cat, which he sure as shootin’ doesn’t like at all–well, you’ll deserve what’s coming to you. Your cat will think of something you don’t like.
