Yep...@Libra926 Bubba lost his priviliges! I've even started babygating him in the kitchen even when i'm gone a short time. It's not worth it. I won't babygate him in the kitchen for long periods..he has been known to bust the gate down, even when applied very tightly! My heart sunk when I saw the wire all chewed up! If he was dead when I came home...I would have felt sooo guilty and been so heartbroken. I take all of them for long walks when I get home or the dog park, so, it's not like they don't get any exercise. He is fine in my room at night without being crated..thank goodness.
Life is like a box of chocolate covered
How scary! I'm glad he's ok! The only time I have had that issue was with a cable cord on the side of my mom's house. I wouldn't leave Samson out there while we weren't home but when he was out there he would chew on it. I lathered it up in tapatio, that stopped that real quick!

@TessaAndSamson great idea! I just need to figure out if I can cut the cable cord back, the parts he's chewed. Obviously he didn't elecricute himself but that doesn't nec mean it's ok to cut it back to the non chewed portion, I don't think. I don't want to fry myself either! I don't want to thread it back into the wall and have it start a fire..if it is live! ANy one know, or husbands/boyfriends know anything about how I can determine this?
My guys are usually good, Frankie gets gated into the kitchen area and Brooke has free run of the living room and upstairs if she wants (bathroom and bedroom are closed off). But even though they've been great for awhile now we even had a relapse lately. Frankie has taken up chewing on the windowsill in the kitchen and Brooklyn on the coffee table in the living room. They started doing it about two weeks ago when my boyfriend and I started up with school again. We had been off of school for winter break and now we're gone more so they're pissed and have been chewing our stuff. And they NEVER do it when we're home so it's hard to correct. We covered the areas they have been chewing in cayenne pepper. Hopefully that will teach them. Little jerks. As if I want to leave them and go to class anyway.
Mine chewed the couch and cushions, their dog bed and stuffing, base boards etc. Never anything electrical thankfully! I think they were partying once we left and Cutty and Mugsy were both teenagers together which I think made it worse. One would start (Mugsy I think) and then the other would join in. Miila has only ever seemed to sleep once we are gone but I think cuz she is around the old farts (Cutty and Mugsy now 5 and 6) so she hasnt thought to. Now with her attitude problem she is either crated or baby gated in the hallway when we leave to be sure nobody fights so wont have to worry about her now.
ah.....I was using my phone on the above post. I fixed my leak and dead and hopefully for those of you who read it the first time around KNEW it was dragon to blame!
