The holidays are a tempting time for cats everywhere. With all of the decorations to play with, holiday trees to knock over and wires to chew, the holidays can be a dangerous time for cats. One of the biggest things that cat’s get into trouble with is holiday trees, which is why, in our Levittown veterinarian’s latest post, we went over a few tips to help you cat-proof your holiday tree this year.

#4. Keep electrical cords out of reach.
The holidays come with lots of electrical cords, and these cords happen to be the biggest threat to a cat over the holiday season. Tape around the cords that lead up to your tree or purchase a plastic cover to put over them. It’s also a good idea to make sure that the cords wrapped around your tree are properly hidden or taped to prevent chewing in case your cat is able to climb your tree.
#5. Repel your cat with different smells.
