I have a cat who enjoys chewing through my infusion set on my pump. I have a mini-med paradigm type and I'm at a total loss as to what to do to get him to stop. Out of the all the cats I own he's the only one who chews through the tubing and I'm frustrated. I've tried punishing him in various ways, but the problem is, he only does this when I'm usually asleep- and yes I know it's him because he's the only one who sleeps with me in the bed and I've caught him at it several times. So by the time I find out what he's done I have to change the tubing. While my insurance does pay for it, I am tired of waking up with ridiculously high blood sugars.
Would it harm the tubing at all if I put some sort of No-chew stuff on it?Or is there a cover (even a kids cover) I can purchase that would keep this from happening?
Getting rid of the cat is not an option as it's my partners cat. He's otherwise a really well behaved animal, just loves chewing on my pump tubing.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks. :)
