They actually make a product to stop your cat or kitten from chewing cords, or you can go get some flex-tubing and wrap the cords around this. Or measure the cords, cut sections of boards for the distance, then duct tape the cords to the boards and flip the board so the board side is showing toward the room.
I think kittens and cats think plugs cords and drapery string are mouse tails- you don't want the kitten chewing on cords because of possible burns and or electrocution. Not pretty! I'll see if I can find that link to the product to stop cats from chewing on cords.
