Cord Protectors Keep Your Pets From Getting Shocked

Bare Bones: Pet Safe Electrical Cords

If you have a furry little troublemaker on your hands – always trying to sink his teeth into something dangerous – then an electrical cord protector is a must have. Keeping a safeguard around your TV, cable, or stereo cords is a good idea so that your pet doesn't get the shock of his life when he feels the need to chew.

Thankfully, you can get a protector on the cheap at Ikea or by shopping online. This cord protector is only six bucks ($6) but can save you a ton of worry and hassle, and it's clear so you don't have too much of a distraction running along your floorboards. Best yet, if your pet doesn't know better than to take curious chews on cords, it's infused with a citrus scent to deter any naughty nibbles. When I lived with rabbits, however, we had something a little tougher, and a lot bigger, because they were quite the super chewers!

Good idea for those breeds that have to chew.

Almost all of our cords are protected from Cosmo with this stuff. He has a few stretches of cord where he is methodically trying to wear down the armor. We've tried coating it with lemon juice, bitter apple solution, and a homemade rosemary extract, but he never seems deterred.

Hmm, so you can just put this over your cord? Good idea!
