The Turkey and The Tape: A Sticky situation

Some of you wanted to know what I did with my new turkey basket. Well, here it is, all finished! I love it! Now, if only I can keep the cats from chewing it and pulling the leaves out. I heard a trick from a cat lover to put double stick tape on any surface you do not want them on. It is much gentler than spraying them with water. SO, I have put the tape all around the table edge. I hope it works! I will let you know.

Cats are great jumpers. They will probably jump right over the tape. You did a marvelous job with your turkey.

I love your turkey centerpiece!!!
Good luck with the cat!! Ours doesn't do that but she IS acting out about where she pees and poops lately. NOT good!!!

Love the turkey, Ginny. And what a good idea about the double stick tape. Problem though. Won't you feel it when you use the table? Or, is this not a table you eat at?

I hope the tape works!

Very nice centerpiece, Ginny! You gave me an idea too.. I have those round baskets.. perhaps I can put in some greens and leave it at the center of my dining table too!

I love your little turkey --and what you have done to it... Makes me so happy --that FALL is almost here.

Hope your furry babies leave the leaves alone....

Hugs,

I love the pretty and colorful leaves in the basket Ginny. It is perfect for fall. Too bad Sunny wants to play with it, my cats would too.
