is there anything to put in a tree to keep my sidney from going up in it ?

baby sidney is trained in are front yard , she does not jump over the fence , she runs the border of the fence , she is afraid of the grass , we have a tree in the middle of are yard , the only time she goes in the yard is the sprint across is like grease lightning to fly up on the tree , i have caught her and told her to get her butt down off the tree and she gets down but one time she climb so fare up my husband had to climb up and get her because she decided she was going to go for it and climb all the way up , she climb on the branches and i freak out , i do not want her fall and break her body or neck .so does anyone know anything to put in the tree to use or a idea to stop her , thanks

What you are describing is natural cat behavior. There are lots of interesting things for Sidney up in the tree like birds and other animals, and from there she can survey her "queendom". Trying to keep Sidney out of the tree is kind of like trying to keep those same squirrels out of a birdfeeder. There are lots of things you can try, including putting a "baffle" or garbage can lid with a hole in the middle around the trunk of the tree if the tree is small enough, but Sidney, like the squirrels, will find a way around it. As she grows, she will probably start climbing the fence as well. Your only alternative is to keep her safe inside your home.
