For the past couple weeks, I’ve noticed an increased problem with my cpap machine’s pressure being high. I assumed this was due to air leaking out of my mask, but at around 3:30 in the morning I discovered that there were numerous holes punctured in the tubing, in at least two different sections. My cat has apparently been chewing on the tubing.
So, I am going to have to get it replaced. But my cat likes to chew on plastic when he gets bored, so in all likelihood this is going to happen again, and I don’t think my insurance company will cover the cost of replacements if it keeps happening.
Is there anything I can do to stop my cat from chewing on the tubing? I can’t simply shut him out of my room unfortunately, since he has to go through my room in order to get to the laundry room, where his litter box is kept. And I can’t get him a new home either, he’s old enough that doing so would be cruel, and he is terrified of new people.
