Keeping Pets from Chewing on Electrical Cords

November 16, 2011

I gave this solution to a friend when she said her cat had been chewing on one of her cables to the computer and another for the DVR and TV. To keep cables tangle free and to keep pets from chewing on them use rubber hose to cover the cables. You can get different size rubber hoses, so you can do each cable separately with smaller rubber hose or use a larger one for all of them.


The pets will chew on rubber hose and not the true cable! This will protect your cords also, when moving, from nicks that may occur. Just mark with fingernail polish what the cord is for.

After replacing the power cords on our lap tops twice in one month due to our cat chewing them, we got vinyl tubing from the home improvement store of different diameters and split them on one side. This fits over the cords and keeps the cats from chewing through.

Two adult cats (2 and 13) own me and I also foster kittens from the Wisconsin Humane Society, so I am always aware of the problem. Two years ago, at Christmas, a kitten we had just adopted bit on an electrical cord from the Christmas tree.

To keep your dog or cat from chewing on electrical cords, rub the cord with a bar of soap.
