|late reply, but you can prepare for next year. pardon my lack of caps. cricket wants to be held like a baby in the burping position, so am limited to one hand.
if you drink sodas from a can, save a few, clean them out really well, and put rocks, beads, etc inside. seal up the sharp opening ( i used a hot glue gun and went nutsy kookoo) hang them at the bottom, near the trunk. the sound freaks them out, and drives them away. i also go to the dollar store, and pick up a couple packs of the bell decorations. big bells get hung around the base fairly evenly, and the bell garlands are strung all over the tree. my cat is weird, and he'll climb it eventually, but this year, he went a good couple of weeks before going "i can do this! *leap*"
