Cute and Cool Cat-Proof Earbud Cases

Ask a Geek Girl: I Need a Cat-Proof Earbud Case

I don't have a kitty, but I can imagine that they can get their little paws into anything. Such is the case for Teamsugar member morenasobuena, as she enlists our help to find her an attractive and cat-proof earbud case to store her new headphones:

I love my iPod headphones and unfortunately so does my cat. She chews them as soon as I leave them unattended to, and last night even stuck her paw into the back of my laptop bag and pulled it out, leaving me a nice surprise in the morning. I bought two more sets today along with a tin of Altoids and I plan on temporarily leaving my headphones in this as a protective measure. Are there any better/geekier/cuter headphone cases?

To see my picks, and learn a quick tip from PetSugar on how to keep your cats away from objects you don't want messed with, just


According to PetSugar, cats don't like certain materials (like tinfoil for example), so if you want your feline to stay far away from something, place it in a bed of tinfoil, and you should be good to go! Of course, you could still use a cute case to store those buds (with or without a cat), so check out a few of my picks below.

My cats fear the tinfoil which I spread out on the couch to keep my dog off of it. I'm glad I got a response to this question because I'm still using the altoid tin! I'm going to get one or maybe even two of these cute cases!!

kewlgirl, wow have you never owned a cat before? I have yet to meet a cat who doesn't love playing in and chewing on boxes!

my cat loves cardboard...weird I know. Any box he can get his little paws on he will chew the heck out of it!! He does leave my cords alone, but he loves to knock off anything that is on my nightstand.

Oh boy, gotta love kitties who chew on anything and everything. :) My oldest pair of iPod earbuds have teeth marks from a friend's cat. The cat I have now is luckily pretty good about cords and such, but any kind of plastic bag HAS to be put away. I don't think tin foil would deter her either...

Tin foil doesn't work on my cat. She chews that, too. Anyway, she looooves wires. The iPod ones especially. And cell phone charger wires, and anything. Mostly thin wires. The only thing that works for overnight or something (for me at least) is a drawer. Putting things away away is the only thing that really works.

You could use your birth control case.

The tin foil thing is something I hear a lot, but it definitely doesn't work on all cats. We make Spazz tin foil balls and he bats them around the house, and if we leave foil on the counter he'll play with it!
