Again. Not again. Yes. I shut Mr. Beau Teak in the study so that all the goings in and out on Saturday would not help him to well, go out. And in that study is not only the cat pan and Beau Teak Siamese. There also are internet power cords. Very thin power cords. Mister got busy and that night I found what he had been up to. He'd happily chewed and chewed on the internet power cords. I posted something and then.....no internet. I went in to the study and found out why. The internet service providers are open Monday through Friday. This morning one of my errands was to visit the internet folks and ask them for a new power cord. So here I am. I really must this time around encase that cord with something. Must.

That could prove expensive. Hope you find something good to encase this one in.

Beau Teak got even with you .... maybe get some kind of tape that that tastes nasty?? I'm so lucky my babies have never chewed cords but I remember a friend of mine who had that problem but I don't know what he did to cure them from doin that.

@rebelann I love Beau Teak to pieces. He is such a ham with hubby. Those two were made for each other. And yet he is being a bad boy in several ways.

@rebelann Thanks for the haw haw. No I haven't. I have had visions of squirt bottles but hate doing that to a cat.

@xstitcher You've never had a chewer pooch? One time we rescued a pooch from the pound. Fine pooch. Day after our take dog back period, pooch chewed up one of the only shoes I had and hubby's belt.

@sallypup Well, the last dog we had chewed up (or attempted to chew up) anything with stuffing. ;) Fortunately he grew out of it.

@xstitcher That sounds like a fine mess.

I expect the power cords looked like mice. Freya once got confused like that and bit my son's phone charger wire in half. Sorry your cat caused such an inconvenience.

@Jackalyn This kitty guy just likes to chew. We were lucky with the DVD player. Hubby was able to tape that cord's wires back together. I love your kitty's name.

@Jackalyn That's plain adorable. Our Leah pup, better known as L L Bean or Leah Lunch Bucket, says hello back!

What a naughty kitty. Now you know that you have to be extra careful. I have a question. Once you get the new power cord it it is so thin is there a possibility to tap it up against the wall or something. Or perhaps this link can help you.
Why do cat's chew on electrical cords? Many cats do it for fun, but kittens will likely find a cord too while developing her teeth. Learn the tips on how to protect your cat from getting hurt by cords and how to protect your electrical cords from damage to

@RasmaSandra Good idea but its not near a wall. I'm going to look at what you found. Beau is a rescue but I'm sure he is a grown up, not a teething kitten.

How can you encase it? Will they give you a new power cord or will you ave to pay for it.

@jstory07 The internet provider said I should go to Walmart and get something to put over the cord. I'm not sure what she meant. I should go ask a clerk over there in the computer department.

Yes, encasing the cords is the only thing you can do. Beau Teak got bored and just had to chew.

@Corbin5 Maybe its cause he's a Siamese he does seem to need stimulation a lot.
