DJ, why don't you wrap your headphone wire with that split plastic sleeve they retain automotive wires in to protect them from the elements. She'll have a hard time chewing through that.

Are you trying to get a visit from the PETA police????

PETA = People for the Eating of Tasty Animals

Wife and kid learned real quick the night I embedded parts of an electrolytic cap in the ceiling. After over 30 years some of it is still there. They never wanted to come in here.

Lesson Learned:

Never jump the fuse in an IBM PC power supply and plug it in. Use a 100 watt light bulb with clip leads attached.

If they can sense electricity then the newest cat-toy fad might look like this:
I used to have a photographic darkroom, and we used one of these Staticmaster brushes to clean negatives before popping them into the enlarger. I found out that they work wonders for cleaning records before playing. I usually kept it under the turntable dust cover, but I forgot one day, and Fat Cat chewed it up. It didn't seem to neutralize him, and after leaving it in the sun to dry out, the Staticmaster survived. These things are nuclear.....

The main reason that I ask is that my friendly feline delights in taunting me by chewing through cables with various degrees of success; however they are always ones which carry low voltages - to date, two ipad charger outputs, one laptop charger output, two interconnects and a speaker cable.

To date he hasn't touched a live 240 AC cable, even if relatively thin and flimsy.

Thoughts?
Careful, Pussy usually get 50% of all voltages ......
