Pets and Wargaming

For a while the wife and I have been thinking about adopting a cat.  Yesterday we popped over to sunny Fife and met a lovely and very affectionate black and white gentleman named Roady who’d been abandoned on the A92 by some imbecile.  With any luck we’ll have him in our lives in a couple of weeks.

Now, my problem is this.  While my wife has had cats before I haven’t and I’m still trying to figure out how best to protect my shinys from feline-related damage.  Our flat is very small so it’s not really fair to leave a room permanently out of bounds for our new family member however when I’m gaming he’ll be kept out of the main room.

Does anyone have advice as to how best to cat-proof one’s gaming stuff?  Any input will be greatly appreciated.

    If you have stuff out in the house on display, have it on a high shelf, or in a cabinet. Also, cats spend a high proportion of their time inactive, so plan your hobby time for when he’s napping.

    He will want to scratch and shiny things will catch his eye, so what the previous chap said. Cats also like to jump onto things so you’ll need to keep things higher than I do for the bunnies. On the plus side, he probably won’t nibble. Scratch, yes.
