This week just keeps on getting better 

Remember the problems we had last year with the cats peeing under the Xmas tree?

We gave them the benefit of the doubt, and figured it was because we were bringing a live tree inside the house. The cats were marking their territory, probably because they smelled other animals on it. (even though we always rinsed the tree down before bringing it in the house.)

Once push came to shove, we realized we were in the situation of deciding between a) continue with the problem year after year, b) buy an artificial tree or c) no more Xmas trees. :(

It looked grim.

My Mom and Dad bought an artificial tree from Costco a few years ago. It's really nice - very realistic looking, and pre-lit.

So, this year, we bit the bullet, and went to Costco in early November to buy a tree before they ran out. (thanks much to Sherilyn and Grant, who gave us a Costco Gift Card as a wedding gift! Thank You note coming soon, Bear, I promise.)

We put the tree together on Sunday evening. It's very pretty. It's seven and a half feet tall, and covered with 1500 lights. pretty.

I thought we were doing well. I checked the tree a couple of times a day, and didn't find anything...


(you see where this is going, don't you?)

Yep, someone decided that they needed to mark the tree tonight. :(

This week is seriously getting on my last nerve, and it's only Tuesday.

omg, the week you're having.

Have you seen the pet devices that emit a loud noise and have a motion detector? Maybe if you put one under the tree when your not in the room it could scare the cats away from it. For example:

At least now you know real or artificial doesn't matter. If you had a real tree and the problems continued then you may have been saying "shoulda got a fake tree", but now you don't have to worry about that at least. :-)

Hang in there!
