    I just learned the following-

    Don't leave your Theraband where your cats can get to it.

    I guess it's a good thing I don't have cats!
    BUT, now that I think about it, I'm sure my dog would have a blast with it if I left it in her reach..

    Probably. Thankfully, I caught them in the act before they could do much damage, but in an unsupervised situation, I'm sure your dog could likewise wreak havoc.

    Oh man, that could have been tragic. Must have been the smell. Too bad you didn't catch them in the act on video.

    I have a Cockatiel named "Cara" who is my constant companion. He (and the computers) have a cat free zone in the basement, that they share with my slingshots. :)

    Cara seems to have no interest in them at all, other than not being used for target practice.

    Good thing I don't have cars, or a stash of TBG.

    Damn autocorrect. I don't have cats.

    I do only have one car, a VW Jetta Wagon. I also have a truck.

    i just got a supply of latex from McMaster-Carr and left the box open. I caught #2 diving into the box with an evil look in his eyes, (Well, cats always look like that.) I snagged him out before damage was done. Got it all secured now but I am sure he is waiting for me to let my guard down.

    That was a tough call for me. 'Do I grab the camera, or save the Theraband...' I chose to forgo the Youtube moment and save my rubber. Had I caught them later on after having chewed through a lot of it I would have gone for the camera but fortunately(?) they had not had enough time to do any real damage and I decided to keep it that way.

    One thing about cats and rubber bands: it probably will only happen once. Glad to hear you were able to stop a fatal ingestion. You can always by more TB.
