I think she was just taking advantage of the off-limits toy while you 
were asleep and couldn't tell her "no".  I have a new cat who is 
extremely active and gets into all kinds of trouble.  He's eyed my 
tubing several times and I always tell him NO in a loud voice.  So 
far he's left it alone if he sees it sticking out from under my 
shirt, but I know that one night he'll probably do to me what your 
cat did to you.  My other cat is an angel and has never bothered the 
tubing.  He perked up the very first night I got home with the pump 
connected, but I told him NO and he's never even looked at it since.
