Foster help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm having a little trouble with my two foster babies chewing on cords, any advice on how to properly teach them not to chew?

They get behind my computer desk and I hate it, I pull them out and they run right back in. I don't want them to get shocked.

Thanks in advance.

A bottle of Grannick's Bitter Apple would work wonders with that.

Keep the door closed til they're older and have forgotten about the wires.

I'll have to try the Bitter Apple. As for the door being closed, I can't do that, because they are in their room all day until we get home then they come in our room with the door closed because of our other 4 cats having range of the house.

Right now we're introducing them to our male cat, they all seem to be taking it well. I've had them for almost a month, and my four have yet to see the two babies. Only under door contact.

Can you block the area off, or put something over the wires? That is so dangerous, because they could just bite right through the wires!

Also, I would try major distractions. A firm "no" when they go to the wires, and lots of dangly toys to play with them, so they have something that is more fun than the wires.

I bought a flexible tube type thing that the wires fit into. (radio shack) It looks better than a bunch of wires hanging around too. Before that I threw a big folded blanket over the suge protector and wires. Then theynlaid on top of it as if it was a bed.

Thanks for the tips you guys! I'll have to look for that tube.

They are getting fixed tomorrow so tomorrow night is going to be a calm one!
