For the last 2 years I have not had a Christmas tree. I want one, but Bill is insane about balls, anything round! He begs for an orange when bring in a bag thinking I am not sharing my toys! If apples or tomatoes are left in a bag on the floor while I am putting things up they are taken. He even rolled a pumpkin bigger than him when he was a puppy.
You see where this is going. I do not cage Bill or put him in a room when I leave has he has severe anxiety and destroys the door or gate. He is good and doesn't get into things when I am gone. He sits on the back of the couch and waits for me, looking out the window.
First of all I am afraid to put my glass ball ornaments on it and I have so many pretty antique ones. I don't want a table tree but also I feel he will try to jump up at it too. You know how high a Coton can jump!!! He also loves stuffed toys which he shreds in record time, so little felt type ornaments will not do either.
The tree has to sit in front of the window where his beloved couch is. At my daughter's house Christmas she had felt ornaments and he didn't bother them but we didn't leave him alone with them, and his fur relatives were there to distract.
Sorry this is so long. I really want a tree this year as my husband died last year and I think it would help cheer me some. But I don't want to hurt my furbaby. I know there is probably no answer but I thought I would throw it out there.
