Electrical cords

Our new kitten, Tirzah, has developed a taste for chewing on electrical cords. I think I solved this problem with one of our other cats when he was a kitten by coating the cords with a hot pepper solution. I thought I would try this again unless someone has a better suggestion. Any other suggestions???

Nah, coating the wires with something not very tasty is the best way to stop it.

Bitter Apple makes a spray and cream that are supposed to deter the animal from chewing or licking things. Although I know someone who have a cat who likes the stuff!

Or you can try a citrus spray. Most cats hate the smell of anything citric.

But if the hot sauce will work then stick with it.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try some citrus furniture polish tonight and see how it works.

Perhaps lemon juice would be better. It's possible furniture polish might be harmful, and might not have much lemon in it.

I hope she doesn't like the taste of that!

LOL Jeanie, you'll never believe it but one of my cats like lemons! She doesn't actually eat it but likes to lick the juice. Your comment just made me think of it. **insert puckered smiley face guy here**

heehee, we don't have to worry about that problem! When ever the cats claw the furniture or chew on something they aren't supposed to, Tia, our yorkie, barks until they stop, then chases them away from the scene of the crime!

Jessica, you'd better get that poor kitty to a nice cozy couch in a shrink's office! Now, Miss Kitty, you said you like the taste of WHAT ?
