This is our first ever Christmas with cats, we put the tree up on Thursday ans I already have a sore throat from yelling at one of them to stop attacking the tree. In fact I actually had to get up and throw her out of the room whilst typing that last sentence! At the moment we're spraying her with a water gun eveytime she does it but the more we punish her, the more defiant she seems to be. Her brother is doing it a little but nowhere near as much as her. She's been trying to pull the decorations down, chewing the branches and now she's trying to climb it. Is there any way of stopping cats from attacking trees? Maybe something we could spray on it to make it smell bad to them? It's a fake tree by the way. I can't be yelling at her like this every day til Jan 6th! HELP!!!
