How to make cats stop chewing on wires: a clever way

Alina MilsentLife
Cats often chew on wires from technology

Cats, especially kittens, love to chew on various objects. It's essential to address their natural inclination to chew on wires from appliances promptly. This not only safeguards the devices but also prevents the cat from the risk of electric shock, which could lead to a short circuit and potentially cause a fire.

There are several methods to deter a cat from chewing on wires. Here's how to secure wires for reliable protection and use scents that can discourage these four-legged friends from causing harm.

Firstly, consider wrapping the wires with additional protection. Experts recommend using a corrugated pipe to shield the wires from damage. Spiral pads, available in specialty stores, can also be effective.

If possible, try to hide the wires behind furniture such as a sofa or a chest of drawers. However, keep in mind that cats can be quite resourceful in reaching even the most secluded places, so this method may not be foolproof.

Another effective life hack involves using double-sided tape. Cats dislike sticky tape as they perceive it as a threat. While this tip may be highly effective, it might not be the most practical solution, as the tape tends to accumulate dirt and dust.

Cats have an acute sense of smell, about 14 times better than humans, thanks to the vomeronasal or Jacobson's organ. Certain scents are intolerable to cats, and you can use this to your advantage. For instance, rubbing orange or lemon essential oil on areas near cables can help deter cats, as they generally dislike citrus scents. Check out the article for more information on scents that cats find unpleasant.
