      Man, there always something. But I'm sure you'll have that fixed by the time I finish typing. Hope it wasn't $100 ft. speaker cable. That would really stink. Robert.

        Nah, not too expensive, but renting the cryogenics lab to treat it is a bummer

        I'll splice it up and everything will be alright - just bums me out.

          I think I am down to less than a few feet of that stuff, actually.

            I actually think cats are worse. Have you ever seen speakers with the grille cloth all scratched up by cats? Even going through the cloth and shredding the woofer surrounds?

              thank goodness my male dog is past his "copper" stage. I have to be careful about scraps of wire that drop on the floor. It must feel good to chew. It certainly can't be the taste...

                It surprizes me sometimes how fast I go through speaker wire. And I don't have a dog.

                And I don't chew on it unless I can't find my wire strippers.:D

                    Fortunately none of my animals have chewed up any of my stuff recently, tho I did once have a basset hound that ate my whole wallet.

                    Also: WHARRLGARRBL! That cracks me up every time.

                      My dog's gotten to the stage where he tries to "claim" everything in the house.

                      I have to permenanty block off the listening room in the basement cause he "claimed" my subwoofer once and i had to kick his a** all day...

                        I feel your pain Johnny! My dog has a bad run of chewing/eating things when he was a pup. The one I remember the most is when he ate half my wifes hair straightener. If you don't know what they are they're basically two heated flat anodized aluminum plates. The gouges in those plated were something else. I had to take one to the garage to see if I could get those kind of gouges with a screwdriver. Found out dog > screwdriver.

                        I got into a thing that I beat him with what ever he chewed... well not really beat him but give him a couple good smacks. Didn't take him long to lose his taste for small appliances and take a liking to stuffed animals.

                        BTW greywarden my dog owns every tree, lamppost, survey stake, and tire in the neighbourhood so I know what you're about.

                          I took each of my five cats in front of the Hives when I brought them in and yelled "NO!" three times and gave them a running start towards the hall. No claws in the woofers yet, but I was glared at and ignored for a couple of days.

                          I love my little house leopards, they are all strays, but I'm sure they picked up on the vibe that it was off to the pound with them if they ruined the speakers.

                          Another note on cat training: When I got the first two as kittens, I had a pair of hamsters in a 20 gal aquarium. Having seen the bloody results of cats and rodents as a young teenager- was watching a girl friend's 5 gerbils and my old alley cat, Tom, chased them down the first night in a trail from my room to the dining room, (one almost made it to the kitchen) didn't chew them, just a puncture or two in the body- so anyway, in turns, I put each kitten alone inside the aquarium with the hamsters and they got a terrific fright as the big, to them at that age, curious hamsters came over to make friends.

                          The male hamster lived for 7 years without a cover on the aquarium and often would visit and sleep on/with one of those cats on my bed. I never chanced leaving them alone with him out of the aquarium, though, as that's not where their conditioning occured.

                            All of us with pups have been down that road. Do you suppose the cryo makes it tasty?

                              Nice and crisp. Without the cryogenic treatment it is a little dark and grainy.
