plain jane Posted January 17, 2012 Share Posted January 17, 2012 (edited) I've posted once before about my cat chewing my laptop cable. Dh was able to splice it back together (although now it is 1/2 the length it used to be :glare:) and we covered it in electrical tape. It's ugly, but works. Well, the problems haven't stopped there. Now the cat is chewing through all our cables. :( He chewed right through the cable for the kids' DSXL charger, dh's laptop (which he was able to splice and fix after some panicking) and most recently, dh's work issued laptop. This laptop is worth $5000 and is the property of his work. We will have to pay for a new charger. :glare::glare: If dh can't get it fixed he's without a laptop and that could cost him his job. :glare: :( :willy_nilly: The DS charger we noticed last Thursday, dh's work laptop was today when dh went to work and it was only half charged, and dh's home laptop was chewed on at some point during the day today as the charger no longer worked when I got home from running errands before supper. Needless to say, dh is livid. LIVID. I'm really upset because of the cost of all of this damage and I don't know how to stop it. I really need some tried and true, reliable advice to put an end to this. My kids LOVE their cat and it will break their hearts to have to get rid of him. Problem is, he's costing us a lot of money. I don't even want to think what the charger will be worth for dh's laptop. I'll eventually have to replace my Mac one as it is so short and almost useless to me now. Is there anything we can do or should we get the kids to start saying their goodbyes? I don't know what's going to be next? Ugh. ETA: One of the issues we have is that we charge the laptops in different locations. Dh's laptop is a PC and only has about an hour of battery life when the kids use it for school so I need it plugged in but they need to be able to use it in different locations. Same for the other laptops. I can't just put heavy duty cable guard on everything because that makes it more difficult to move. I guess in a busy house with 5 kids and a cat and dog, I really don't want to have to worry about my cords being eaten. There's already so much to have to think about. :glare: Also, there are just so. many. cords. in this house. To wrap them all in heavy duty plastic tubing would be a costly hassle.
