Set up the tree

Decorate the tree
Decorate the tree, leaving the lowest area free of decorations for the first few days. Add decorations to the bottom of the tree after the cat has gotten used to the higher ones.
Coat electrical cords
Coat electrical cords with with a non-toxic chew deterrent to discourage your cat from biting them.
Add a scratching post
Place a scratching post near the tree along with some kitty greens. Make it so that everyone, including your feline friend, will enjoy a green Christmas.
