yes. you can buy unprinted 'newsprint' at an art supply store. i used to have a large [3'x4', i think] pad of it.

Cat Toy

Anyone who knows cats knows that if there is piece of paper on the floor, that's where the cat will lie down.

Yep, even 8.5x11 pieces of paper... If I have paperwork to do for school or work, Murray loves to lie on the paper if I put it on the floor.

I did mention in my toy instructions that you can get butcher paper. If you shop at a local store, you could ask if they ever have what used to be called "butts," which are the rolls that they take off when the paper is getting low. Sometimes they have a fair amount of paper on them.

But...do any butchers use butcher paper any more? Or is it just used in the doctors office to cover the examining table, these days?

You can get a roll of wrapping paper (white) for him to play on. I found out its not a good thing to let kittens who are mainly white play on newspaper!

It is hard to find stores that still give you paper sacks but I only go to stores that still ask "paper or plastic?". I get as many paper sacks as I can because I have never known a cat that could resist having a great time with something so simple.

I always get a some extra paper bags from the store cuz Rocky loves to sleep on them. I think he likes the sound they make.

wy thank you! they are sweet well behaved kitties and i take pride in that cuz i feel it's a reflection of me, in a way

my kitties do not sleep together but they like to smell each others noses and fur. they eat side by side. they also watch each other go to the bathroom. penny was born april 2003 and daisy in april of 2005

penny likes turkey and beef and whitefish flavored foods while daisy loves all flavors especially shrimp (real shrimp --i know i know that's kind of bad of me to give it to her. penny couldn't care les for real shrimp)

Simba loves boxes, too. He used to like bags, but then he got trapped in one, and has been afraid of them ever since.

Snowball goes crazy over paper and paper bags... She sits on it then fights an imaginary mouse that's hiding underneath it Poppet likes a paperbag but isn't as fussed.

I'd like to thank everyone for posting responses! Every kitty on here is so cute. I will be looking for lots of brown paper this week. I might even lightly spritz one or two sheets with catnip and see what happens
