Animated Cables

I am trying to create a cable that I want animated on one side and connected to a post or an other object. What is the best way for me going about this?

It’s kind of hard to know what you are attempting to do from your description, but i think you want spline IK

There are numerous ways. You could use a curve for the cable and use hooks to manipulate them or a bone system.

Another question, how would I go about anchoring the two points in the curve to two separate objects?

use hooks ( ctrl H ) on the control points, then parent the hooks to your objects.
