We too have a cat who likes tochewon things he shouldn't. We've managed to hide most wires, etc.,but he absolutely loves the tube that runs between my CPAP machine and my nose. He has destroyed several by biting little holes in them. Our solution has been to encase the tubes in a larger-diameter, tougher plastic tube, about 3/4" OD, available at a hobby or hardware store. The same stuff should work for your electrical cords too, though you may have detach one end in order to get the wire through the tube and re-attach it afterwards. Friction tape or Mystic tape should work for this, as well as for securing one end of the tube to the wire so it stays in place. It's some trouble to go to, but a small price to pay to avert an electrocuted kitty. View Thread
Hot pepper sauce does not work for all cats. Our one-year-old can't stand it and runs when he smells it (though we'd rather not spread it on our down bedspread, on which he loves to chew). But the four-year-old seems to be immune to all things zesty, and will happily lick clean a plate that once contained a VERY zesty Indian meal. He also loves ice cream.
I also believe that one or two tablespoons is far too much. I'd give the cat one teaspoon at most. Their little mouths can't hold much more than that.View Thread
