    So im kitten proofing my house at the moment before the little one arrives, we have dedicated a room to her so she can run around freely.

    The only concern i have is with the spare TV wires. We will of course turn the power off at the socket before she is left alone in there, but obviously we still dont want her gnawing on the cables which might break the TV/Wii console.

    I've heard about bitter apple spray but i cant seem to find it in "Pets at Home" is there anything readily available for this purpose in the UK?

    EDIT - we need something that WILL stop her even if we are not there

    This one is the same idea … only it’s a lot cheaper.

    I use it in my kitten room and while it won’t last forever, you will see when you need to replace a length of it. One roll of it will last years.

    It only costs £4.00 for a 5m roll of the stuff. And you can shove tons of cables inside it.
