My kittens have only had 6 months to destroy things, but so far the most costly item was our artificial Christmas tree.  They broke off nearly all the branches from the bottom 2-3 rows, and since it is pre-lit, the branches are still attached by the cords for the lights.  I’m hoping next year we can repair it, otherwise that will be a one-year old $75 tree that will go in to the dump, and we will just buy a real one from now on.

@SouthernGirl:  It wasn’t my dog it was my parents but their dog chewed up 3 pairs of $200 dollar each Oakley glasses. Lets just say my dad wears sunglasses from the gas station lol

@SouthernGirl:  My cat peed and pooped on a $400 handbag the first week I had him. Somehow he got into the closet and I didn’t notice. I then discovered the smell some time later (ugh). Luckily it wasn’t a new bag.. it had over 2 years of almost daily use by that point, but I was still upset!

He also chewed through one of the straps of a nice pair of Nine West slingbacks.

I am way more careful with my stuff since those 2 incidents happened 🙂

We’ve lost TWO Macbook chargers…one to our cat Monroe and one to our German Shepherd puppy Jake. That’s probably the most expensive thing they have each destroyed but they do their share of damage on a regular basis. 

Jake has chewed up the heels on a pair of my shoes (fortunately they weren’t super expensive), destroyed a birdbath that the previous owners left in our yard and ripped the carpet off four stairs (fortunately we were planning to replace it anyway…but still). And today he broke a crockpot by running full speed into the table it was on and knocking it onto the floor.

Monroe will eat cords if we don’t watch him and he tries to claw the couch if he wants to go outside and we’re not opening the door fast enough. They are such brats lol.

My cat has never *knocks on wood* yet eaten/destroyed anything of much value….

 

BUT

 

He did SOMEHOW find my high school graduation tassle and mutilate it severally.

Emotional value count for anything in this thread?

He also scratched me on my ring finger the other day and I’m REALLY hoping it heels before the wedding!

Oh and on that thought he gave me cat scratch fever which racked up the medical bills trying to figure out WTF it was.

The only thing our puppy chewed through was a ratty pair of shoes that DH really needed to get rid of really badly. However ILs dogs have chewed up about $2000 in technology including laptops, gps, remotes and phones. Also every time they leave the house if them don’t clear every and any surface the dogs cam reach including bookshelves then everything will be destroyed.  And they think they have well behaved pets….

Most expensive? 2 Pairs of Gucci eye glasses. But, usually, she picks out our favorite things and eats those, books, childhood heirlooms, etc.

 

This is her as a puppy she ate a high lighter.

My cockapoo was a good boy when he was little.  The only thing I remember him chewing up was the antenna on my cell phone, which I was able to easily replace.  

When I got my cocker spaniel, though, everything was different.  He chewed up my office chair, the front of my couch, straps on tank tops, shoes, made holes in the drywall and carpets.  DH and I were long distance, and I warned him when he came to visit that he needed to keep his things up high on counters and not use the wall sockets near the floor to charge electronics.

Somehow, Sammy got ahold of DH’s $300 electric razor even though it was on the bathroom counter.  DH didn’t want to tell me because he knew I couldn’t afford to replace it and I would feel awful, but had to when I asked how come he didn’t shave that morning.  

DH was very understanding, though, as his miniature schnauzer had somehow managed to destory a brand new pair of Oakley sunglasses that he had carefully placed in the middle of the dining room table.

The dog my family had when I was a kid chewed and scratched through a door once.,. I think that’s the most expensive, other than all the carpets our current dog has ruined because my mom lets her run free in the house after not training her properly (I tried, but everything I do is undone by my mom)

I don’t have a dog now but when I was younger and living with my mom, my black lab puppy chewed the corner of my cell phone, the cord from an electric drill and the corner of my mom’s coffee table.

When my ex and I had a dog, it was very bad at eating / destroying things.  My underwear (ew), a GPS, multiple pairs of shoes, and the worst was when she pulled down the bin we kept medication in.  And she chewed up all the bottles of Tylenol / Nyquil etc.  Needless to say that was a LARGE medical bill.  She was not a very well behaved dog (obviously).

I was lucky when my dog was a puppy, she didn’t really destroy anything expensive.  Thankfully she never chewed on shoes and she has outgrown trying to chew on furniture (she chewed my papason chair in college but it cost about 10 bucks).  However, she did eat a tampon last year, and while tampons are quite cheap, it expanded inside of her and got stuck and the emergency surgery to have it removed cost 4K.  So that was the most expensive thing by far!
