Rabbits are always chewing on wires. We protect the rabbit by putting heavy plastic tubing on lamp cords, and any other power cords. Get a thick plastic tube from something like Amazon or an auto supply store. Carefully, make a cut using a sharp blade the entire length of the tube. Then spread apart and use it to cover the power cord. Now they are safe for cat biting.

Foil will not do the trick. The plastic tubing keeps them from coming in contact with the electrical wires with could injure or kill them. The foil, if bitten, would only serve to increase the possibility of an electrical short, or having them make contact with the electrical current. The tubing is not a psychological deterrent, but a physical one.

I would try keeping her away from all wires and using a spray bottle of water to discipline her anytime she approaches a wire. Good luck

Did any of these methods work for you?

Spray the wires with Bitter Apple.
Keep her out of the rooms where wires are.
