That cats can not imagine my life without the crash tests Christmas trees, they know everything. Furry Pets, have never distinguished themselves in this field, certainly exist, but they are almost nothing is known. But why is this an attribute of the new year celebration arouses the wild beast in even the most calm cat? Let's face it.
Let's start with the fact that all cats, regardless of size and habitat is a very curious animals. This feature is common to many predators and it allows them to quickly Orient themselves in any situation. The tree is a new and fairly large object which causes a quite justified interest of all the inhabitants of the house. So why the pet should ignore it?
It is possible that if the decorated Christmas tree stood in our homes all year round, they would lose an attractive novelty for the cats and the eternal confrontation came to an end. But we hardly know whether it is or not, and it is quite understandable why.
The second reason is the extreme interest of cats in Christmas trees lies in hunting instincts. Shining, blinking lights and tinsel rustling with the slightest movement of the air tree just becomes object of hunting or games — as you please.
The probability unfavorable for tree outcome is inversely proportional to the age of the animal — the younger the cat, that is, the less he encountered in his life with a Christmas miracle, the more dangerous it is for holiday decor.
In most cases, when faced once with a barbed, wires strewn and hung with dangerous toys tree, cat in next time to treat her much cooler. Especially if the owner violated the ritual of the tree carried out an investigation and interrogation of a brawler with passion.
But not necessarily a negative experience will be passed naughty home the cattle for the record, therefore, the responsibility for the safety of the cat and the Christmas tree still lies with the owner.
Ways to partially protect these two from each other a lot, but, alas, it is absolutely effective, can only be considered complete isolation.
In order to reduce the damage caused by the expedition of the animal to the tree, you can take a few simple measures. First and foremost, should ensure maximum resistance of the tree to even the most rapid attack is not able to bring him down.
Veteran kotovladeltsev also do not recommend using tinsel and all the tinsel and "rain". Of course, it will affect the aesthetic side of the holiday, but deliver us from unscheduled cleanups, which in the New year completely out of place.
Another way to say it is very effective is spraying trees with a special aerosol with citrus odor. Cats do not like these flavors and try to keep from their source away. If you do not have time to stock up on such tool, then can walk up and normal skins from tangerines and oranges, placed directly under the tree.
There is another option — to install a Christmas tree that will simply not handle the caudate due to its size. For example, this giant tree of several parts, set the house a single resident of the UK.
