cords and chewing

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My cat recently chewed through a computer power cord, and I'm not sure what to do. I will be replacing it, but I don't want her to chew through it again. She has never had a problem with chewing in the past, but I know this is a very dangerous behavior. Any advice to make a cord look less appetizing to Meisje?

I use clear tape and tape the entire cord along the wall and up the back of the desk/entertainment center/etc. Using a staple gun to secure the cord long the wall would work, too, but I rent so I don't do that. This way the cord doesn't wiggle, move or resemble something that looks like a fun toy.

Check with the local office supply, electronic or organization (eg The Container Store)stores. They make a couple of different plastic tubes that wrap around the elctrical cords to protect them. They aren't very expensive.

Try spraying all the cords with Bitter Apple Spray. Stops my cats/kittens and the dog from chewing on things.

If that doesn't work, you can buy cord protectors where are round tubes the cords feed thru.
