Cat vs. Python

No, no...I don't mean the snake.

OK, does anyone else have a cat that likes to attack their Python during water changes? My cat LOVES water change day. As soon as I start dragging out the Python hose he runs into the room. While I'm vacuuming the tank he is chasing the bits of debris along the hose. Well, lo and behold, last water change I had about 3 little streams of water shooting up from my hose. Dang it!! He punctured my hose! Now I have about a one foot section covered in duct tape. Today I discovered another hole so out came the duct tape. GRRRR!!

put the cat in the bathroom.

We had to do that to a dog when we vacuumed.

wont duct tape affect your water when your refilling your tank? Like washing off some of those adhesives?

The holes are pinholes. I doubt that it would affect anything.
