How about something like this?

It's made for kids. I would certainly think it would also work for cats.

Which begs the question, just how many times per day do you need to plug and unplug an appliance from a particular outlet?

Sorry, my mistake.

Spray some mint or other scent at that area that cats don't like?

No?

Just a suggestion.

Don't spray liquid catnip there.

I did not know that, I used mint as an example.

BTW... your nick (msmofet). "Little miss moffet sat on a toffet...".

Cute.

I've not looked into the meaning behind that rhyme.

I believe I read somewhere that catnip is in the mint family.
