Morning Charlie

Three letters for you: CAT.

I keep a barn cat in my shop, eliminates mice, squirrels, some spiders & he is super quick at finding flying springs & dropped small parts. He usually just lays on the shelf & watches what I'm doing (unless he's hungry, then he's a pest).




I agree. We've been without a cat for about four years now and miss them. Our dogs are not much help. Our search begins for a cat who will agree to tolerate a couple of half-wit dogs.

I'll bet it was more than a coincidence, removing the panel probably bumped the gnawed wire.

Evening Cris

That is sort of what I was thinking. Working in the automobile industry & having some farm equipment I have seen a LOT of mouse & rodent wire damage.
The little devils like to chew the wire insulation off but I haven't seen one chew all the way through the copper wire strands. But once they chew the insulation
off the wires can short out easily.

Charlie had ground squirrel problems so maybe those things actually can chew through metal wiring. (we're going to need a bigger cat!)
