Helpful Hints

DEAR HELOISE: I'd like to urge everyone who owns a pet and a computer to hide their cords in a long tube designed to hold wires, or to somehow get those cords off the floor. We recently had an accident here where our cat bit down on a cord and got a nasty shock. It knocked out power to my computer, and the cat was knocked out for a minute or two. She's OK now, but this could have been much worse. Our pets don't know about the dangers of chewing on an electrical cord, so it's up to the owners to protect them from being electrocuted.
