Trying not to give negative reinforcements, I feel terrible if I get frustrated and bang on the metal to make a scary noise but she just doesn't seem to learn and I'm concerned that she'll end up breaking something, or electrocuting herself since cables seem to be a favourite. Any ideas?

A dog will sort it. Just make sure it is one that is too big to sit on top of the Playstation though as otherwise you'd need another solution for the dog.
Yes?

Well strawberry float, now I feel awful.

I logged into facebook and got reminded of a post I made 7 years ago today. It was the day my cat was put to sleep for having FIV and being really ill. I miss him so much, how has it been 7 years :(

These are really old photos, but RIP to my little guy.

You could try putting something on top of the playstation so she cant get on top of it, or as already suggested stand the playstation vertically.

Also try putting an empty cardboard box in the room, there's a good chance she'll choose to sit in that instead of inside the cabinet.
