Just curious (like a cat) - are these wire biting cats living in the house only? Do they go outside often?
In my case, indoor only. Then during his second summer when he was fully grown I found out he had a talent for escapology that would shame Harry Houdini. He learned how to open sliding doors, those which you push to open and kitchen cupboards where the bottom of the door protrudes. Jumping out of high windows became a real speciality

So I just gave up, and he is now free to roam. Interestingly, his overall demeanour has improved markedly, and I must admit his propensity for chewing things has declined.

Ah, thanks guys.

I know a number of neurotic cats, all of them indoor only cats. Maybe wire chewing is part of the neurosis? One of our cats was a holy terror when he lived with my step-son. The cat was a pure apartment dweller, never been outside. We were really apprehensive when Jr. moved to another town and left the crazy cat with us. But once the cat got over his fear of the great outdoors, he became Mr. Mellow. No mischief, as lovely a cat as you could want. He loves being outside - it's really changed him.

You left out the obvious....

Yes, it looks like he's just finished one. Mmm...tastes like chicken.

Fat Cat loved human attention, and would do anything to get it. He would even let my daughter dress him up in doll clothes and push him around in a doll stroller. He also would get in on the action when the humans were engaged in the consumption of some.....uh.....controlled substances. The female preferred to watch from under the couch or on top of my 7 foot guitar amp stack.

Unfortunately Fat Cat had little fear of anything, and at the time we got 4,000 cars a day down the street in front of my house. Fat Cat could become Flat Cat rather easily if he got out.

We had a third cat for a short time. I was cruising down I-95 one evening in my 1968 Camaro and I saw some SICK F*** throwing kittens off an overpass onto I-95. This caused an accident, and at least 2 dead cats. I grabbed a red and white kitten, and someone else got another. Someone went after the cat killer threatening to throw him into traffic. Someone else went for the cops. Cell phones weren't invented yet. I chose to leave...quickly.

That cat was never right in the head, and didn't get along with the other two. Even though it was smaller and younger it would keep the others from eating. I had an old car (1949 Plymouth) in the garage. The cat would get inside it through a hole in the firewall and not come out until she heard the cat food box. We named her "crazy" but eventually gave her away.

Wow, a tranvestite cat who enjoyed 'controlled substances'. Sounds kinda like 'Sister Ray'. Cool.

Well, the same stuff (I think it was called "Thum") used to keep kids from biting fingernails can be used to keep cats from chewing cables - it's cayenne extract, and they don't like that one bit. Rubbing the cables down with Nature's Orange might also help - I've heard they don't like orange oil at all.

Y'know George, in all my experience, I never understood that one. Was that for the ladies? Every time I ate cat, it tasted like cat.

If they can sense electricity then the newest cat-toy fad might look like this:

My cat is very partial to small cans of chilli tuna and has no problems disposing of steak remains that had been smothered in Tabasco.

Hey George. You must have a very tolerant wife. My better half would go NUTS if I sprayed her in the face with a spray bottle !!
