I keep my pet alligator in the stereo room and my cat tends to stay away.

In my neighborhood, the "outdoor" cat is a bobcat. We also get coyotes, so housecats don't last long outside. My cats have never really bothered the speakers, though, especially after one was sniffing the subs when the 1812 canons went off....Must have tickled his nose.

I generally find that the half-life of outdoor cats is much too low for my liking.

You will get no argument from me, I pretty much agree.

Lots of variables for sure. I live in a rural preserve where we can have just about anything but pigs. Theres horses and hay, sheep goats and chickens, and mice.

I have never brought a cat home, they adopt us but I limit it to two females and we get them spayed so we donít contribute to the population. Everyone here (neighbors) agrees that nuisance cats get rounded up and get gone.

Default Spikes

I had to let my wife get a kitten because she has been so understanding of my audio habit. Now he's a big boy, and used my speakers as a jumping-off point to the mantel and knocked off some pictures. His rear claws damaged the grill.

I used these bird spikes. The cat stretched up and checked the sharpness with his mouth. He was on hind legs looking for a landing point and could not find one.
