25 Genius Ways To Prevent Your Pet From Destroying Your Christmas Tree.

#6. If you've tried everything and you can't put up a tree, then try hanging your ornaments instead.

For kitties, ornaments are just another excuse to knock things down with their paws. But it's not quite so easy if you hang a bunch of ornaments from the ceiling in the form of a Christmas tree. And kitty will just have to strain his neck all through December.

If you've tried everything and you can't put up a tree, then try hanging your ornaments instead.

#7. These people had a fan-tastic idea when they decided to hang their tree from their ceiling fan.

It's festive, and it'll keep your tree and its ornaments safe from your cat's claws. The only ornament that may be in potential danger is that hanging star on the tip. And we have no doubt that your cat will find a way to get up there.

#8. Sometimes you have to think inside the box instead of outside in order to save your tree.

This cagey idea prevented these homeowners from canceling Christmas. But boy are they going to have a seriously ticked off cat meowing "bah humbug" all season long. Seriously, you probably don't want to get anywhere near your cat right now.

#9. Dogs can be just as hazardous to Christmas trees as cats can be, but they shouldn't be caged for that.

Instead of locking your pooch up in a kennel, you can put your lovely, overly decorated Christmas tree behind bars. Sure, the tree is probably thinking, "this is so not fair! I didn't do anything wrong!" But the dog is probably thinking the same thing.

#10. Nothing says, stay away, like the threat of pain, which is why a cactus tree is perfect for Christmas.

Instead of buying a conventional pine tree, or a plastic one, get a cactus tree, preferably one with lots of thorns. At most, it will deter your pet to stay away with a tiny jab that won't cause any permanent damage to them or your holidays.
