My System Specs

Default Cat chewed my new Sen pc350!

Argh, i just got the damn things and the cat chewed the wire in about 5 places. i had to cut out the chewed pieces, but i now am looking at a splice job in 3 places. Anyone have any tips? Is this doable? The wires are crazy fine, i havnt seen wire this thin before, and some of it is coloured and looks like its mixed with fiber in the wrapping...not sure what to do....if i should just match like to like and twist and tape it or what.

Really pissed thats 250$ down the drain in less than a week :/

As I have said before, Cats are the most evil of beasts. Probably realized that you were loving those phones too much and basically decided, the phones go, I stay.

They are spiteful evil creatures.

Do you live near a bridge?

Throw the cat off it

As for the splice job, sounds like it's going to be a long, painful process.

In all honesty, rather than trying to splice the wires, I'd contact the manufacturer with a sob story explaining what happened and see if they'd be kind enough to sell you a new complete wiring harness.
