My 2 cats have just about destroyed my mini blinds. I keep them pulled up high enough so that they can look outside and I put the cords up out of their reach. However, they jumped up and pulled one of them down, chewed it to pieces and even chewed the cord!! I knew which one chewed the cord, it was Midnight. I kept a close eye on him because I suspected he swallowed some of the cord. Sure enough, he did. This is gross, but when he went to go poo in the litter box, the cord wouldn't come completely out so he scooted his little butt everywhere. I cornered him and using a paper towel, tugged ever so gently to help him pass it. It came out easily, but I was horrified to see that it was at least 6 inches long! I know this is TMI (too much information). What is it about mini blinds and cats? I don't want the world to be able to view the inside of my house, but I don't want my cats being harmed by mini blinds either. It looks like I will soon have to take them all down anyway cause they are too far gone, but what do you suggest I replace the blinds with? I am thinking curtains would get destroyed as well and I am not sure about shades either. Have any of you had this problem and if so, what did you do to solve it?
