I do NOT know the answer to that question, just throwing out there to see if it has any merit.
If the wire is too big for the cat to swallow, and you know your cat won't swallow it, would chewing on it in and of itslef present a danger?
Exactly - I'm just concerned that there's something potentially toxic in the wire coating or something like that. I'd like to know the same about a leather belt - the leather is shiny on one side and rough and kind of nubby (almost suede-like) on the other side. I'd only allow him to play with either thing while supervised - but if they're toxic than I need to come up with a safe alternative.
