Have plenty of scratch posts available and make sure they're solidly anchored.

Default Cats and speakers

The key is to get them to imprint on a more appealing substitute before they “claim” a speaker or find I appealing.

Get a really nice, appealing and sturdy (the more you have to replace the post the more you have to repeat the process of enticing) scratching post, place it maybe 3-5 feet from the speaker and dowse it in catnip. Literally, on a daily basis, make sure your cat gets really messed up on this post.

I took a pvc pipe and set it in epoxy inside of an indoor flower pot, then glued rope around it. Sounds hodgepodge but it came out looking really slick.

If you get creative you can make it look very nice amongst your furnishings. Or, there’s a variety of offerings you can purchase:

Then get a spray bottle with water and blast them if they come close to the speaker.

So, you have a positive and negative motivator working simultaneously.

Speed and consistency is the key.

Once the process is effective you can incrementally move the scratching post farther away.

I can personally vouch for this method.

I’m fairly sure comments like that are in the classification criteria for being labeled “vermin”

Just what one would expect from a Sphincter muscle.

Metal grills??? Interesting idea. No sound interferance?
One of my cats is blind and easyly directed but the other loves to get into stuff. I recently found the motion activated blaster cans, I might try to make a no go line.
