A few scoopsful of Big Cat (lion or leopard) dung in the tree bucket will not only keep your cats away, it'll keep all those unwanted relatives where they belong (in their own houses) for the festivities!

I meant to check the link but (and you ain't gonna believe this) one of my own cats decided I needed pestering, so I got sidetracked. About the vacation, I've just got back from 3 months in Nepal (not technically a vacation, but a nice break.)

Teehee, the upside down tree is always funny. I had one year when we nailed the tree stand to the floor because of naughty meow action.

That's the cat's took care off...
However that tree is going to be sharing ceiling space with something else ending in "at".
We could always stick the presents in the display cabinet to avoid it being smeared with guano.
If we didn't that wasn't exactly the stocking filler I had in mind.

My cat would just strap a piece of toast; butter side up, to his back so that he could float up there and get that tree. (look up antigravity cat). :tu:

Friends of mine once mounted their Christmas tree to the ceiling as well...at the time they had 2 year old twins and a 4 year old.
