Tips To Keep Your Pets Safe Around The Christmas Tree (INFOGRAPHIC)

So, Christmas is less than a week away, and I’m pretty sure that you already put up your Christmas decorations. Or maybe you are waiting to be closer to Christmas Day.

Either way, when you have a pet, you have to be extra careful if you decide to put up your Christmas tree because it can be very dangerous for them.

Christmas tree or no Christmas tree!

We’re having my daughter’s two cats at home until May 2017 because she and her boyfriend are gone for a trip around the world. My husband and I have heard horror stories about cats and Christmas trees, so we’ve decided not to put up ours this year.

Some pets don’t even go near the Christmas tree, but others are definitely attracted by it. We tend to forget that the Christmas tree is full of real danger. That’s why it’s important to be very cautious and to know how the Christmas tree can harm them.

  1. Hi Nataly,

    It’s taken me this long to get here. Ugh! These are spot on tips! We didn’t put up a tree this year or last. With my 2 bullies, it just doesn’t make sense. They’d tear it down. I kind of miss the vision of a tree, but not all that hustle and fuss of putting it up and decorating. I think it’s different if you have little ones at home but with just hubs, me, and the furkids…. I’ll pass.

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! 2017 is almost here!

    1. Hi Bren,

      I can totally understand why you didn’t put up your Christmas tree. I’ll be honest, I missed my tree a little bit this year, but I didn’t want to take any chances with the cats.

      But just like you, I didn’t miss having to put it up and decorate it. I love the final product, but I hate having to do it, so it was kind of a relief when we decided not to do it this year. And we don’t have any little kids either in the family. Maybe if we had grandchildren, it would be different!

      Thanks for stopping by! I hope you had a great Christmas! 😊
