Thought I'd share these caution items from our veterinary clinic (I didn't know about the pine needles) …
I didnt know about pine needles either. I have pine trees all around my house. Though I don't think they would forage on them. But if the tree was in the house it would be a different story. For sure they would have it knocked down the second I got it up. I opted for a fake tree and put it in a room they dont usually have access to.
Thank you for the good info!
