#30648 - 12/01/04 12:03 AM electral tape inside the cage?

Is it ok to wrap up some not so safe things in electical tape to make them less dangerous?

Theres a few things I want to do with the inside of my cage as well and black electral tape would work the best for it.

Curious to know if anyone used it before without problems...

I am curious to know what you would need to tape up that would be of any kind of danger to your glider in its cage? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

If there is anything that can be dangerous I would have to suggest to remove it from the cage rather than wonder if tape would be safe...

Dont mean to sound mean, but anything that could be dangerous does not belong in a cage...
And I would not recommend electrical tape just for the record....

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

What I know about electrical tape:
1> It tastes NASTY! (Learned by tearing strips with my teeth when scissors weren't handy.)
2> It will leave black sticky residue on aforementioned teeth if you use said teeh on it excessively.
3> Within a few hours of application to a surface that is in any level of humidity, it will un-peel from itself yet remain frustratingly tacky to the touch. (in other words, it won't stay stuck to what it's supposed to stay stuck to but will cling to whatever else it comes into contact with like a monkey to a tree in a hurricane.)
4> The very last place you want tacky electrical tape is in hair, fur or sensiteve areas.

I would think that electrical tape or any tape for that matter would probably get into their digestive tracks and in the end would cause death. If there is something in the cage that is dangerous, take it out. No suggie should have anything in their cages that should require tape.
