Destructive chewing by cats is a real behavioral problem, mostly because of the probable danger to the cat, and also, because of damage to family treasures. Causes of destructive chewing by cats can span from teething in kittens to boredom, to curiosity, and also because of a nutrient deficiency. Just like human babies, kittens investigate the world with their mouths, and these habits can carry through to adulthood.
Wires and cords are a real problem. Chewing on electrical cords poses perils to your cat, from minor shock to death. Cats first and foremost chew on cords out of tedium, particularly if left alone during the day. Try to make available plenty of interesting cat toys for your cat or kitten, including door or wall mounted toys they can whack or smack around, cat towers to investigate, with attached toys for added curiosity, even an arrangement of cardboard boxes on the floor with holes cut through the sides to form a fun tunnel land, can amuse a feline.
Daunt access to the cords: Apply a few rows of double-sided sticky tape to the floor surrounding a large cord tangle. Felines will be averse to walk across the sticky tape.
Cover the cords: Many computer supply stores sell pre-split hollow tubing for covering cords and electrical wires, as well as kits for handling computer cords. If you are good with a utility knife, you can buy flexible poly tubing in several diameters in most home improvement sores. Simply slit one side of the tubing, and then cut it to length for each cord...
Make the Cords Taste Awful: By a long range, one of the best training tools for any type of destructive chewing is bitter apple spray. It is certain to leave a taste, so bitter-bad, in your cat’s mouth, she/he won't long forget it.
Cats don’t realize the dangers of electricity, but you do. Protect your cat with just a few easy steps.
