Free Toys!!!!

I was awoken at 1:30 in the morning by the sound of K.C. playing.  It sounded like she was having a grand old time batting something plastic around the bedroom.  This was odd since we keep all of her toys downstairs.  Wondering what she had gotten ahold of, I begrudgingly got up and flicked on the little flashlight I keep on my night table for midnight finger sticks.

Much to my surprise, I found K.C.’s fun new toy was this . . . . .


It’s the top of my pump reservoir - the part that snaps onto the insulin bottle when you fill it.  After site changes, I immediately put the sharps in an old coffee can that is my personal sharps container.  I don’t ever remember dropping one.  Apparently I did, and K.C. was happy to claim it as her own.

Free cat toys . . . . just one more benefit of  having diabetes.


  1. Since adopting our kittens and discovering a love of wire-chewing, I'm very happy that I don't have a tubed pump (my CDE told me that a lot of her patients with cats have tube chewing problems). But our snuggly little guys for some reason like to rest their heads or paws on my pods.


Thanks for your comment!
