Natasha Posted February 17, 2022 Report Share Posted February 17, 2022 Please don't say this should be in Furry Friends..... those with or without pets need to see this and warn pet people/friends! 5 pm Tuesday---- TP modem suddenly totally dark. NO lights red or green. Checked all plugs / connections. Tried power off / on modem switch plus surge protector. This meant no phone, internet, wifi, or TV. OMG the sky is falling 😡 LONG talk on cell phone with tech support. Nada. Sent tech out this a.m. Answer? Darn CAT had chewed the flimsiest gauge of all the wires that connect from modem to power source (the one with the little transformer) right in half !!! Asked why she would do this... never any other wires touched. He said those wires emit a "pulse" that cats (and guessing other smallish pets etc) can sense.... it attracts them, and they get a little electric "shock" as they make the cut. Apparently they LIKE this ??? Worse yet --- same cat has already done this to two cordless phone handsets. I just had not made the connection as to wires being the same. As usual... another day, another life TECH lesson........... sigh. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
