    Maybe put something bitter on them to encourage them to leave it alone....Heres' one idea that someone else did.

    One super strength spray bottle found at home depot
    hot pepper powder
    Vinegar

    Combine about 1 cup of vinegar and several heaping tablespoons of pepper to almost hot water. Just warm enough to help dissolve that pepper
    Spray the HELL out of those wires and the floor around the wires.
    If cat is stubborn enough to get past the vinegar smell, one simple nip with that dried pepper powder will send him scurrying.
    I have a chew on everything kind of kitty too. I didnt want him eating my plastic christmas tree so I used that spray on the b ottom branches where he could reach and one bite.. he ran off and hid.... never touched it again

    Are you talking about the plugwires throughout your home? There are plastic covers for automotive wiring that are long tubes slit in a spiral so that you can feed over your wires easily. If the cat continues to gnaw on it he could get through to the wire though. Maybe put the plates cover on and sew up some covers with a displeasing texture to feed the encased cord through. That way your kitty won't gnaw and the wires will be protected.
    Whatever you choose to do, it is important that you repair any damage already done to avoid an electrical fire.
    Hope that helps

  • Bundle them up and wrap a zip strip around them so they are not low to the ground. Small PVC piping, cut a slit down the side and put them through it if they run across the floor. http://www.homedepot.com/b/Electrical-Home-Electronics-Cable-Management-Cord-Covers/N-5yc1vZc65e

    Run the wires through PVC pipe.
