OK, this will be the first real Christmas with my boys. I had Ulysses and Jackson last year, but they were only 3 months old. The biggest problem I had was poop on the Christmas tree skirts. How do you handle things like Christmas trees and decorations? I put up three trees - 1 real and 2 artifical. I'm torn about the Christmas village I inherited from my mother-in-law. It sits on the console below the TV. But I've allowed the cats to use this as a passage between their two cat trees. Besides giving up, any suggestions?
