Although cats are generally more discreet about what they put in their mouths compared to dogs, some cats have a penchant for chewingunusual objects. One thing both dogs and cats often chew on are electrical cords. This can be a hazard for two reasons. First, it can be a danger to your cat, because of potential electrical burns. Second, it can be a danger to your home, as an exposed wire can be a fire hazard.
Cats that chew through electrical cords often experience burns on their lips and/or tongue. More serious problems can arise, like seizures, respiratory difficulty, and even cardiac arrest.
