    Seriously! I mean, my dog is well behaved (I know how to train a dog), my other pets are contained (small, furry, scaly, etc.). My cats......well, my cats are HORRIBLE!!!! They are pretty good about staying off things like counters (thanks water bottle) but they torture my dog and they eat chargers. Like cell phone chargers. This is an almost constant thing. I can't count the number of phone chargers I have replaced and they are NOT cheap. However, they really did it this time. They ate the laptop power cord! So, today I spent $50 getting a USED replacement!!! I think the old one would be perfect to strangle the little darlings, don't you?????

    LOL....honestly, I do find it funny sometimes (except when I am paying for the replacements). I mean, seriously, WHY????? They just better be glad I love them!! And Lucy (the second one) is my husband's cat so he always reminds me "It WAS NOT Lucy" (though she is actually the worst) "She must have been trying to hide the pieces so your cats wouldn't get in trouble" [​IMG]

    Could you paint the wires with tobasco sauce?
    That worked with my cat eating houseplants.

    I may try that (just bought a huge new bottle of Tabasco in fact). I can almost see my little darlings saying "YUM, Mommy seasoned them for us!!!" LOL

    Well, there's that too.

    Mine haven't eaten anything lately, but they're leaving hairballs all over the place. Spring came suddenly, and they're a mess.

    Well, maybe you could charge things in the bathroom or a closed room? I know, cats can be amazing when it comes to opening doors you don't want opened. Some even learn to turn door knobs! But maybe yours haven't learned that trick yet?
