One of mine *loves* bubble wrap. She especially likes the larger bubbles which she can pop.

I have 3 cats and cloth covered speakers. One of them was keen on being up on top of the speakers like yours. I tried the deterrent spray from the pet store- cat did not notice. I tried the sticky tape- she was very surprised by this and almost brought the entire front of the room down. I would not recommend this for the speaker situation. The only thing worse than sticking a landing on top is an aborted attempt that has them flailing about... Anyways, I found resolution with two things: 1) Orange peel around the speakers- our cats hate the smell. 2) I made a corner cat tree in the back of the room that has a perch just below the ceiling. After a couple weeks, the cat decided the speaker seat sucked and the tree perch was the place to be- now
movie time starts and she heads right up to her spot in the tree.

You need something that will surprise te cat when it jumps up there. Maybe a taser... Nah, maybe just a plate filled with pebbles or something.

All the advice I have read so far is extremely ugly. Just get a guard dog to watch your speakers.

Only one thing that truly works and it's got to be done at the time! Catch EM doing it and spray it at them!

Sounds like 140PSI compressed air and that's all it is..


Leave the cans out right next to the speakers so they can see them muahahaha..


My cats don't even look in the direction of my speakers any more

I took sone of the sane advice and put some doubled up masking tape on top of the speakers. I thought it would be a disaster because as argent65 said a flailing cat could bring the house down. I put it there before I read that also.
She tried once jumped back and hasn't tried since. We'll see how it goes. Also Groupon has a great deal on cat condos so I've ordered their tallest one. .

We trained our cats not to jump on counters, speakers, and tables from kittens with water spray bottles.

Good to hear the tape seems to be working- it is probably one of the easiest methods for all concerned parties.

Another behavioural note about cats is that they like being at higher position in a room so they can see everything - unfortunately speakers give them that good vantage/lookout point.
