Dogs, cats, gerbils, hamsters, rabbits and more... they've all got one thing in common: they love to chew on power cords. Since going completely wireless isn't likely when it comes to providing power to our peripherals, there must be some way to gently dissuade our pets from chewing their way to disaster... and now there is.

CritterCords keep your wires covered while keeping curious pets safe. Available in both standard (for regular power cords) and Micro (for thinner electronic device cords), CritterCords act as protective jackets that cushion power cords against the biting force of chewing creatures. That's just the start, however: pets don't seek to cut cords, they just enjoy exercising their jaws.  

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your POV), the clear plastic that makes up CritterCords is infused with the scent of citrus that offends pets' noses. If they get past the scent, a bitter-tasting flavor is released from the plastic. It's a one-two deterrent punch that puts pets off giving your cords the pinch!

CritterCords are 10 feet long with the standard size slightly more expensive than the thinner Micro size. Considering the consequences of a bitten-through live power cord, we'd say it's an investment that pays dividends every uneventful day. You can get Crittercords here.
