There are all sorts of cable management products that are already made just like you are suggesting and they have been out for years. Available at your Fry's store or Staples near you. Just sayin.

We have four cats, and have never had a problem with them messing with the audio gear. They were told to stay away and they do. The only thing I have done is to put something on top of the speakers so they wouldn't even think of trying to jump up there. They just leave it all alone.
Cats are intelligent. Cats have staff, dogs have owners.
My cat Chandler used have foam balls to play with. He loved that he could bite them and sink his claws into them. I loved them because they bounced and were fun to play with (with Chandler) and they didn't break things when tossed in the house. You can check and buy BPAP machine (info right here) that has more protective cables and your dog or cat will never damage it.
My cockatiel (bird) likes to chew the AC zip cords. So lamps, etc are all in danger. I used Teflon pipe tape the heavier blue variety and wrapped where he had chewed. Then rolled up soft paper towels (Viva) and taped them over the exposed cords, wrapping all 'extra' cord around the base. He leaves the paper covered cords alone.
I wrapped the Kimber 8TC speaker cable up just in case..
The fine turntable wires are a dread to think if he bit one even once. Poof. So I have objects around the back of the arm to physically prevent him from reaching them.
