2) Coat the wires in bitter stuff. You can buy a little bottle at a pet store. Most cats absolutely HATE it, and won't even go near them.
3) Spray your cat with a spray bottle adjusted to the narrow spray, not the big wide spray. They definitely don't like that and will generally get the point when you blast them everytime they come near your computer. Not the face, just on their backside.
4) Get a little box online that releases compressed air when the cat triggers a motion sensor on it, place this near the computer. Most cats will learn not to mess with it because they REALLY hate the compressed air blasts.
Cats are cats though, sometimes they can't be deterred. My cat is relentless. They have pretty sharp teeth too, I'd be surprised to see something they couldn't chew through. My small cat has eaten through wire mesh sheathing on cables.
why does the cat eat the wires???
those can do some electricity if they encounter saliva
anyway ,those 4 methods are good
do them and buy the JVC RX700
, and if your cat will do it again just kick it or:sniper:
