It is highly recommended that you keep all drape cords pinned in such a way that the cat can’t see them so as to prevent any accidents.

TIP! When considering a new pet, make sure you visit the area shelter first. Shelters are overflowing with wonderful cats, and the adoption fee usually covers essential vet care.

You can keep your cat away from electrical cords by spraying them with some bitter apple. If your cat is especially intent on chewing cords, keep them covered as much as possible. If you have loose electrical cords, you can bundle them up and stow them away in a cardboard tube (think toilet paper or paper towel rolls). If you have electrical cords laying out that are not being used, put them away as cats can play with them and then move on to live electrical cords.
