|My cat loves to go after my speakers (well, the grill cloth at least) She also loves to go after my vinyl record collection... I suppose that rows of cardboard spines are hard to resist. Scratching posts, those cardboard scratching things, etc. didn't do anything to curb this behavior.
I found some destroyed speakers in the garbage (maybe even hit up your local goodwill and get some busted speakers that are around the same size) and I brought home the grill covers home and placed them right in front of my speakers so now she goes after those. I also draped a sheet over my records. Neither is a particularly aesthetically pleasing solution, but my records and speakers are intact and neither was a very difficult or expensive solution.
As we all know, cats are clever. Turtle goes after these things when she wakes up (usually aroun 4:30am) because she knows that she will immediately have my attention. Now that she can't scratch my speakers or records, she's decided to start tearing posters off my walls. I haven't figured out how to stop that yet.
