We just decorate two large living potted Christmas trees (we've had one of them over 15 years) with unbreakable baubles and outdoor LEDs. If the new cats want to try and topple something it takes two humans to lift, good luck to them...

Lady of The Manor Cat is now 4 yrs old, and in previous years has managed to remove all decorations from the lower branches of the tree, scatter them around the room, then sit in the midst of the chaos looking like butter wouldn't melt ........

It is still standing. We tethered the tree to a patio door handle. Marvellous suggestionsmile

Get a spray bottle! My lovely girl has just turned 9 months and topple out tree twice already grin the spray bottle does wonders!

Tree up?! It's November.

That aside, good luck. When our youngest cat was tiny we had to keep a coat hanger next to the tree to poke cajole him out from behind/underneath it and he was forever prodding at the (glass) baubles and trying to get them off. Little sod darling.

We may try one of these this year. Although the tabby cat would still try to climb it.

Look forward to seeing something like this very soon. grin

Good luck - we've not been able to have a tree for years!

Our old lady cat likes to eat tinsel and does sparkly poos grin

Kitty is 12 weeks old. She found the bag of tinsel and played in it. We have put non-breakable decorations up. It is a fake tree. Will I find it on a heap on the floor in the morning? grin
