How many of you have had your phone charger cord (or any cord for that matter chewed on)? As in man’s best friend decides he likes the phone charger cord too! Well in my case it was the cat! I could see out of the corner of my eye my dog quietly snickering in the corner as I was chastising the cat!
I don’t know what Apple puts in their phone charger cords but I swear it’s crack for kitties. The cats just gravitate towards them! They have yet to meet an Apple cord they didn’t like. Gah! What is a girl to do? This is my solution…
To make this I had a very long ribbon that was used to tie a comforter closed. Of course I saved it knowing it would come in handy. But, if you don’t have a ribbon just cut any fabric to size: About 2 inches wide by double the length of cord you are covering. Fold fabric in half and sew along edge. You can turn fabric inside out so the seam doesn’t show, however I left mine unturned as I liked the contrast in thread color. There really is no wrong way. Just get those cords covered!!!!!
And you know what? It works! I haven’t lost a cord since this invention! I can’t guarantee the same results for you, but try it. What do you have to lose…well except for another cord!
I’d love to hear what you think about this easy to do project! Drop me a comment below. 🙂

This is genuis!!!! Such a great job. You always wow me.
And you my Dear are precious! Day made. Thank you! I was out playing in dirt all day! I hope your day is a beautiful one! 🙂
I had a cat who chewed like a dog, and lost a phone charger during his reign of toothy terror. If he were still around, I just might try this out!
Ahhhh so you know what I’m going through!!! Mine is like a dog too. Even fetches!!! Thank you for popping into my little world. Have an awesome evening!
Thank you! I had to lose a lot of cords to figure this one out. Hahaha. When you think you will be more careful and out the cords away and the one time you are too tired; that’s when the kitty’s get ya! Theses cord cozies really come in handy! Have a great day! 🙂
Yeah great stuff
Ima hire you as my cheerleader! Oh and fashion consultant! 🙂
How creative and practical! But that’s what solutions by Koko always are 🙂
You are precious! Your comments always come at the right time to lift my spirits! I’m following closely with those Ospreys. How sweet they are! I hope you are having a beautiful day Tiny. You always deserve that!
Have a beautiful weekend, Koko!
Thank you. Ahh the lessons we learn from our pets! Hahaha. Hope your day is gorgeous! 🙂
My cats have been chewing on my iPhone cords… I just understand why they like it so much
Hahaha! I know right?! Happy Easter Dear! 🙂
Thank you, I have recorded the notes, because the iphone is really easy to break the line. 🙂
I am glad this was helpful to you. Please come back and read more. Thank you for taking the time to comment.
Lol I thought it was just our cat being weird. She’s full grown, but only a year old it’s hard to remember she’s still a kitten technically. We keep all our cords and electronics in a wicker basket (covered) from Hobby Lobby by our couch
I have to play hide the cords from mine too. This really has been a lifesaver; cord saver I mean! 😉 Thank you for reading. Have an awesome Wednesday.
Lol same. I’m thoroughly enjoying your helpful little diy projects.
I’m glad you find something useful here. It’s been years and years of my families encouragement. Fun to do the projects as well. Saves money and you get the outcome you want. Like when I laid hardwood floors…I also stained them the way I wanted. Please keep coming back. 🙂
Is there anything you can’t do? What a great idea. Couldn’t help but laugh when I read about the cats dislike for apple products! They aren’t alone. I believe Samsung trains cats to eat Apple cords!! Looking forward to reading about the next project on the list. Be well.
I wish I could post more ideas and what not. It’s difficult for me to find the time to write. Thank goodness for the smart phone as I can still connect while being driven somewhere or in bits and pieces during my day. I am building concrete steps at the moment. One more to go, then I need to learn how to work with epoxy as I want to lay pretty rock over the concrete. I tell you since making the cord protectors I haven’t lost one yet! Those aren’t cheap! Samsung is smart! Teehee 😉 Happy adventuring with your buddy. Mine found something to roll in while I was out yet again mowing. Off I go to bathe him! Take care! 🙂
Love this looks like I could do this or at least a good try
Please do. This is also a great way to decorate cords you just want to cover up! Also you can do this for the hanging lamps withy the chains. If you get tired of looking at the chain you can do this treatment in it. Change it with the seasons! Hahaha. 🙂
Such a great idea! My cat has chewed through SO many of my phone charger wires. I might need to give this a try!
I can’t guarantee it, but I have yet to loose a cord since doing this! The savings!!! Right?! You know the cost of these cords? Crazy! Hahaha thank you for kindly commenting. Take care Carissa! 🙂
Super tip, thank you for our furry chewers…
Cute idea! This would make a nice stocking stuffer, for next year.
Yes indeed. These would make great gifts. I haven’t thought of that!!!!! Thank YOU for the idea. 🙂 Take care!
You are sooooo clever.
You are to sweet. It really does work in saving my cords against the kitties!!!! Happy new year to you!
Wow ! This is great!
I’m happy you think so. It really has stopped them from chewing up my cords. Knock on wood, I have yet to lose a cord since doing this. Have a lovely weekend!
