My cat Scout thinks Christmas tree is a new litter box location. Sheíll urinate on tree cover. Thatís a treat to clean! I have to keep a plastic liner under tree to facilitate clean up. I make double certain to keep all litter boxes clean, but she feels a need to express herself creatively at this time of year. Itís her way to contributing to tree decorating tradition. She does it once, and she's done.
Next, if you own a scaredy kitty, confine her to a safe room when hosting holiday events in your home. If possible, confine your kitty in a place that guests wonít stumble in. Put her food, water, and a clean litter box in room. Stop in from time to time to reassure her that itís alright. If there arenít adequate hiding spots in her room, think about putting a box or large paper bag in with her, and encourage her to burrow in it.
Finally, purchase some natural flower essence compounds to put in her food or water all during holiday season. There are several good remedies that are recommended for situational stress. Add a few drops in kittyís food or water twice a day, and youíll see results within 24 hours.
Flowering essences are also safe for human consumption, so if youíre contemplating a fall into insanity, take a few drops yourself!
You can also purchase synthetic hormone substances that come pre-packaged in a bottle that plugs into any electrical outlet in your home. This remedy lasts approximately a month.
Good luck, and happy holidays to you and your family Ė humans and animals!
