A perfect day for bringing home the tree.

So Audrey, what are your plans this year for my Christmas tree?
So, now you have your tree and it looks great. It is standing tall for all to admire. Here is a tip that is new to me to keep kitty from climbing your Christmas tree...
Add pine-scented air fresheners to the bottom of your tree. Cats do not care for the strong scent and will usually walk away.
If your cat decides to dive-bomb the tree from above it is best to put a hook in the ceiling and tie a string to the tree to keep it from falling over along with your cat. Keep all furniture away from the tree that kitty can climb and launch from.
Decorate the bottom half with unbreakables as most cats will just swat at babbles rather than climb the tree.
Most of all, be patient with your cat. To her, this is the best cat toy you have ever brought home. She wants to show her gratitude.
Perhaps you can give kitty her own tree decorated with all unbreakable ornaments and let her have lots of fun with it. Place it in another room far from your own tree. Near a window is best.
Good luck. Here's to standing trees. *I raise my tea-cup*
Time to decorate.
