The family cats use it as a hideout/battle ground every year. The dogs? They can’t contain themselves from finding out how every ornament tastes. Theres also the chance that Fido decides the christmas tree is an alternate indoor urinal.
This is the annual struggle many families face this time of year. The family pets vs. the christmas tree. Or should we say the family’s war to protect the tree from their furry companions. This week’s invention spotlight gives families an upper hand in this yearly battle. Enter the Pet Christmas Tree Saver.
Purpose of the invention (from Inventionhome.com): Pet Christmas Tree Saver is a screen that is placed at the bottom of a Christmas tree to prevent kittens, puppies and other animals from playing with the lights, ornaments, tinsel and other decorations on the tree. This easily applied screen would also deter the animal from attempting to climb the tree. Because the tree is protected from the tampering of house pets, the user will not have to constantly clean fallen needles or sweep up broken ornaments. The electrical lighting in the tree also poses a threat to the safety of the animal. Pet Christmas Tree Saver is available in various sizes to accommodate all Christmas trees.
The Pet Christmas Tree Saver uses clips that hold onto branches, securing the screen in the process. The screen has room for 11 clips, making certain that the screen will hold up all holiday season and stay in place on the underside of the tree. The screen is pretty well hidden underneath the tree, so it will not be an eyesore to look at for any extended period that you keep your tree up.
