Are you serious? 😂🤦 Half a Christmas tree?! Sure it might keep the cat from climbing it, or a little ankle biter from pulling it over, but this isn’t a Christmas tree! When I was a kid, our neighbor had a cat who would constantly climb their tree, knocking off ornaments or even bringing the whole thing crashing down. So they would secure mouse traps to a few of the branches. We’d be at their house in another room and occasionally hear a scream from the cat. That solved the problem. Probably works on toddlers too.
