So my family has this cat (possibly a kitten since she is only about 6-7 months old) and she won't stop attacking and getting in the Christmas tree. We've tried two commercial keep-cat-away products and neither of them did anything, except aggravate the dog a bit. We've also tried putting tinfoil around the tree to see if the cat would not walk on it and it didn't work either. So, i was wondering if any of yall knew a way on how to keep the cat out of the Christmas tree.

I finally gave up
We put our tree in front of our window where there is normally one of my wife's huge hanging plants
I wired the top of the tree to the plant hanger so at least they couldn't knock it over and put away the good ornaments
Be sure to use garland and not loose tinsel as it doesn't digest. They do eat it

My son and daughter-in-law have had this problem for years...they've learned a few thanges that work.....
First as garmanma suggested, tied tree securely to wall or whatever.....this alone will save much frustration....
use only garland....Tinsel once digested can prove to be fatal......
now for the big thange.....get yourself some "Double sided sticky tape and it has to be double sided,,,,,use this around and thru the tree....fur critters don't like it and will avoid it....it won't hurt em ...they just don't like their paws gettin stuck to it.....it annoy's them...LOL
so just as with a child it derails them as they are busy tryin to shake that stuff off of their paws... :thumbsup:

Get a spray bottle and fill it with water.
When the cat attacks the tree shoot it with the water.
Hopefully after several shots it will leave the tree alone.
