Here is a sneak peek at a little project I undertook over the weekend. We have spent FAR TOO MUCH MONEY replacing charger cables that our cats have eaten right through. Our current batch of charger cables is the third or fourth replacement set. Given that there are two of us and we each need a charger, that kind of turnover rate can put a serious dent in the monthly budget. Plus, it’s a total pain to find your computer out of juice because the charger cord has been nommed into nothingness while you slept…
Last week, when our single remaining charger succumbed to the gnashings of tiny, feline fangs, I finally said: “Enough. Is. Enough.”
Thus, in a bid to keep our feline familiars from destroying the most recent batch of cables,
(not to mention preventing the damage to their little catty brains from the electrical charge!)
I spent some time “wrapping” the wires in a sort of macramé/braided casing. I’m hoping the braid will serve as a deterrent, as the texture is not the same as the rubbery cable in its naked state (is that what they find so appealing?). I’m also hoping that, should someone still feel compelled to teethe on the cord, the wrapping will protect the cable from sharp little fangs.
I’ll post a wee “how-to” later in the week, in case you need it.
In the meantime, we shall see how this preventative measure works out…
