I knew it was only a matter of time...

Bengals are notorious for being playful, and for finding their own means of entertainment when bored, alone too long, or say, when their owners are sound asleep.

This morning I got up to find that Max has apparently discovered that unrolling the toilet paper roll CAN be fun.

Fortunately, he didn't unroll TOO much of it, but he did decide to talk about it quite loudly at about 6 a.m. He even came in my bedroom to tell me all about what he thought of it. LOUDLY. I feigned sleep, of course, until my alarm went off and I got up to go to the bathroom, whereupon I made today's discovery.

I just removed the stuff he'd unrolled and left the rest of the roll on the loop - my roomie was due to get up a couple of hours after I left the house, so I figured instead of just starting to keep the rolls somewhere other than the holder, I'd let my roomie discover Max's new toy on his own.

That way there ought to be no argument later when we can no longer keep the TP on the holder like normal people. Sometimes making an adjustment like that can be very difficult for a man over 45. (Old dogs, new tricks, yada yada.) So I need to let it be HIS decision to make.

I wonder what I'll find when I get home from work tonight...

Hehehehehe that was only a matter of time.

I keep the toilet closed at all times or I'll have rolled off, shredded TP around. Although I have a seperate toilet and bathroom so the bathroom is still open, just the toilet closed off.

Nikita *loves* TP so much that I've 'given' her a roll of her own on her birthday.

What a fantastic present! For kitty and mom! If you do decide to do something I suggest a cut open 2-litre bottle. Of course, Max will probably figure that one out in less than a day...but it stumped poor Wickett so long that he's given up on TP.

Lucky showed that trick to Gus, She learned it from my dog sophie, just when we thought it was safe to leave it on the vanity, Lucky has discovered that she can easily knock it off of there. I think we need to build a Toilet paper safe

Bea used to do this when she was a kitten, I just put a clip on it so it wouldn't unravel, once I did that, she was bored with it

Well, when I got home, I found the toilet paper roll had been left alone - but a cactus plant in the living room had been pushed over and the clay pot had broken, so there was dirt everywhere.



Oh yes, new and different every day!

You have plants?! I don't dare have any in my home (ok I'm really bad at caring for them as well). I have a fishtank and Nikita has one caused a horrendous fish tank accident that killed almost all my fish but now she's co-existing nicely with the tank.

She tipped over a Co2 yeast based DIY container so all the yeast got siphoned up into the tank, multiplied and used all the oxygen there while I was at work. The only fish that survived were my bettas who have a limited ability to get oxygen from the air..

I hope it wasn't too much mess cleaning up the cactus.

Takoda is terrible when it comes to TP, papertowels, newspaper, magazines and the mail as well.

I'm contemplating a fish tank - a former neighbor has an overpopulated koi pond, so I was thinking about some really big "goldfish."

But yes, I still have a LOT of plants. Once I rehomed all my aloe vera plants (Max was eating them) I've pretty much had no problems other than an occasional knockdown here and there.

Fortunately, the catcus that got knocked over was a broad-leafed flowering one (not in the Xmas cactus family, completely different type of plant) that I grew from a cutting I picked up in San Diego about 10 years ago, so it has not much in the way of spines and made for an easier and less painful cleanup.

And now I have two accidental plant cuttings, so I can make a couple more!

Lol I just have the toilet paper roll toward the wall and not toward the seat. That wards off my kitties.

I LOVE to see the pictures of naughty kitties in a TP snowstorm - or TP pile!

But I must say - I'm glad none of our kitties - even Flowerbelle, the paper-tearer/shredder and Ming Loy - who LOVES paper towels rolls - never discovered the TP!
