Christmas Tree
Has anyone figured out what the fascination is about the christmas tree?  Not even just the tree itself- mainly the tree skirt.  One sleeps on it and the other does what I call the "Rabbit". He grabs it with his front paws and kicks his back feet like a rabbit.  He loves to do it with his tennis ball too.  What is it with these goofy creatures?

May be the bright colors that get their attention. It doesn't take much to get a cat's attention, especially if it's a new thing in the house. We don't have Xmas trees set up all year, so when they get to see a new shape with colors, well they want to investigate, play with it, and possibly mess it up to see what it is all about.

I am so insulted right now. My cat doesn't even look at my tree. I am starting to think that my decorations are not right, or good. Is this normal? All the cats at MH are attracted by Xmas trees, except mine.   :(

Probably is attractive because it is "new" and provides a good hiding place for the cat to play. If there is anything hanging, then the cat has some "toys" to knock down and bat around.

We aren't having a tree this year for some reason...

One year I ended up putting my vacuum cleaner and my old vacuum cleaner by the tree.  They stayed away but it wasnt terribly attractive.  I have tried the spray stuff but it keeps my hubby away too.  He actually put on a gas mask to come into the living room.  Haha it wasnt that bad.  But it didnt work anyway. Im hoping some day they will grow out of it.  We got a real tree one year and they didnt like it as much because the branches were more prickly.  But turns out my husband had a bad allergic reaction to it. He broke out in hives.  So Im stumped.  I just put it up and shoo them away when I see them.  They are pretty obedient when I tell them to get down.  But it doesnt stop them from going back.  If anyone figures it out, let us know.
