Does anyone have a cat who is a chewer? My cat tries chewing on my chargers, compulsively. Obviously I stop this for two reasons (dangerous and messes up the charger), but when I remove her, she goes right back to it, or she starts chewing on me. It's like she has no control over it.

Any advice? Chew toys? Recommendations of those?

Iíve had a cat that chewed things before (she chewed our old landline phone cord in half years ago.) I never tried it, but Iíd read about something called bitter apple that you can buy to coat a wire with that tastes awful. You can always try to distract her with a toy, but you have to catch her doing it.

If itís just the charger, could you place it in a room and close the door when youíre charging the phone? These cats can be really tenacious when they want to do something. Mine keeps scratching my husbandís speaker cover, and heís not too happy.

That's probably your best bet.

Just in case you missed my Friday photo I'll post it again. I don't think Butter Apple would have helped in this case.

I used Bitter Apple when my dogs were young. It does work wonders. I needed to reapply the spray a few times and then they learned.

Our dog kept chewing her harnesses. We bought bitter apple spray at the pet store. Problem solved.
