A couple of weeks ago, I laid down two runs of CAT-3 computer cable from 
the house to the tower for a new antenna switching system.  I was out there 
yesterday after the rain stopped, and discovered a 2-foot stretch of one of 
the cables that appears to have been chewed by something.  Can't tell yet 
if the continuity has been broken on any of the pairs -- that's the next 
chore -- and I'm hoping this was a one-time experience, but I was curious 
whether anyone knows anything about plastic cable jacket materials that are 
more or less attractive to small animals.
