X-pens can keep puppies confined and out of trouble, but can also work to keep Christmas trees confined and away from.....um.....trouble. Well, sometimes, anyway

My first two cats have always been pretty good about the tree. Sometimes they like to use the tree skirt to slide around on the wood floor and occasionally bat at an ornament, but nothing too terrible.

My third cat thought trees were great for climbing and sliding down the branches. Thankfully he's over that now.

This is the first year in a few I've put up a tree. So far no shenanigans whatsoever. I can only hope it continues!

Bad Bella!!
I second (or third or fourth it) the x-pen idea. I stole one from Lisa, to keep Callen out of our living room, since he decided that was his new potty area. You can take that one from me, or borrow one from Lisa or Holly while the tree is up, then buy a nice one at the next dog show for next Christmas.
