Spray bottle? HA! That's a poor excuse for a cat deterrent! Lemme tell ya I had a cat once that needed an atomic bomb to deter him from something he wanted. His name was Sylvester but I think he thought his name was G-darn it! My BF thought I'd lost my mind when he first spent the night because I collected a paperback book, my slippers and a bottle of saline before getting in bed. He looked at me quizzically and I explained, 'they're for Sylvester in the morning, he'll drive me crazy.'

He also 'owned' the Christmas tree. He'd 'help' put it up, sleep under it and if anyone other than my husband or I tried to take anything from under it they were subject to attack - remember I said he owned it? Spraying him with water had no effect. Huh? Yes, he ducked or scooted out of the way. I would toss the book next to him thinking it would scare him, he'd give me a pitiful look as if to say, 'can't you do better, you dumb human?' and continue to yowl that he was starving and I needed to feed him NOW.

Getting ready to go have Christmas dinner with family, and I needed a good laugh before I go.
Thanks for this one.

Those pictures are hillarious!!!

So far, our 3 youngest cats haven't bothered with the Christmas tree. They haven't even tried to climb it. We didn't put it up last year, but the year before they had a blast with it. They were only 4 month old kittens then, and when they weren't climbing it and batting at the ornaments (non-breakable ones), they were sleeping in the branches. It was a kitty tree house/jungle gym. We left it up until past Valentnes Day because they were having so much fun with it.

Our nine-year-old grey tabby, Bertha, once took a VERY out-of-character "dump" under our Christmas tree. I think it was because she was confused about a "pine tree" being in our living room...her favorite "litter box" is under the pine trees that grown around the front of our house - she likes to dig and bury her business in the soft dirt and pine needles under them.

My cat that was a kitten last year loved to climb the tree and hide in the branches. The older cat liked to sleep under it. This the kitten is now a bigger cat and tried to climb it but lost interest in it. Now they both sleep under it. I do keep unbreakable ornaments close to the bottom because almost every cat that I have ever owned like to swat at them from time to time.
