NO, NO Ferris!

Telephone extension handset recharger cords are NOT a kitty chew toy!

I was wondering why my bedroom landline handset wasn't charged...looked under my bed and found that the very thin cord connecting the power adapter to the base had been chewed all up and down and was now in several pieces of varying lengths. Toothmarks all up and down each length.

It does not appear that he actually ate any, but he had a fantastic time destroying it. It WAS plugged in at the time, and I am simply amazed there was no electric shock.

I have checked all the regular sized power cords in the area, and there are no teeth indentations. So I think we'll be ok. I will of course have to protect my speaker wires, and any other thin wires in the house, but I will hope this was an isolated incident.

Well, I read the wording on the adapter that was plugged in (and chewed up) and it is a 9 volt adapter, so fortunately, if he DID get a shock, it would have been like licking a 9 volt battery rather than becoming a crispy fried Ferris under my bed.

Ugh...I don't even want to imagine what that would be like to find.

I checked some other wires in the house, and no signs of chewing anywhere, so it has to have been 5 a.m. boredom waiting for me to wake up and no hairties in sight anywhere. Poor bored baby. It isn't like there aren't 700 other toys all over the house to play with.
