Any Cat Owners Out There?

This would wake me up immediately and he thought this would get him treats or something. I did not reward that particular behavior and he only did it twice. Well, he did it maybe a few more times before he died of suspicious causes.

Note to self...do not cross Paula!

You too could fade away in that fashion. Me too.

Got my cpap a week ago and our cat that is 1 year old.
She thought the first night that the mask was a bit scary but the second night she did not mind it at all. Now she lays in our bed every night and she has never done something against the machine, mask or hose.

Ahhh, cribbe - your cat is sooo cute! Smile It's not the cat I'm worried about. Something else that's very weird is going on. Last night I woke up with the machine off and the mask stuck to my head with superglue. Last week it was duct tape. My wife was also asking about my life insurance... Hmmmm.... Big GrinBig Grin

I have 5 cats but only one sleeps with me. I usually pull the hose under the covers. If I don't, she lays on it which makes it hard to move around. In addition, she was responsible for a number of unusual Sleepyhead charts. I had my S9 set to autostart. She would step on the button while I was sleeping and turn it off. The autostart would restart it up. I happened to notice her stepping on the button while awake a few days later and figured it out (thought there was something wrong with the machine). I have an Airsense for Her and the on/off is situated that she doesn't step on it. Now that I have another Airsense for Her as a backup, I'll be selling my S9. YES, there were other ways to solve this problem, but I came across a not-to-be-bypassed deal to get the same model as I use regularly. Smile

What she doesn't like is the air that comes out of the mask. She situates herself so that it doesn't blow on her.

Having been a caregiver for several family members with immense medical problems, dogs are more likely to damage medical equipment, but they can be easily trained to leave stuff alone. Cats, not so much. They don't much care for fat tubes (on your cpap) but adore skinny tubes and will steal them if given the opportunity.
