A few hours after the current very restrictive lockdown was announced that put a capacity of 25% or 75 people, whichever is smaller, in any store that was allowed to be open, people went nuts, rushed out, and bought out all the toilet paper. I ordered a box of 80 rolls of super-soft, 2-Ply, 100% Recycled Fiber Bulk Toilet Paper on-line at a reasonable price, less than Costco’s Kirkland brand. The cats, especially Spunk, Silver, and Marble, worked and worked on getting the box of toilet paper opened. When I walked into the dance room on Saturday morning November 21st, I discovered the kitties had managed to get into the box and pull out a roll of toilet paper and had started shredding it. Fortunately, one roll was enough for them — the sacrificial roll. We hadn’t realized a roll of toilet paper could be so much fun. Since then they have been slowly shredding it. Spunk, Silver, and Marble have been taking turns beating up and chewing on the roll.
Video of Spunk, Silver, and Marble playing with the roll of toilet paper. All three really go at it, but Silver and Marble were reluctant to really beat up the roll when the camera was rolling.
The kitties really like beating up on the roll on top of the card table.

Why the eff do people feel the need to stock up just because less can be in the store at the same time? It is insane to me.
As for the kitties and the roll… boy oh boy! Glad mine never got into that!
There seems to be some evolutionary toilet paper hording genes passed on from the Great Depression generation. I remember mom telling me about having to use Sears catalogs for toilet paper during the depression. Now that most catalogs and reading materal are on-line, people must be freaking out of the thought of using their mobile devices. Thanks, Dale.
Hah! I can understand the folks who did without worrying about having to live it again but honestly…
That’s why I think it’s a hereditary trait.
And then you have the pack mentality that just jumps in mindlessly!
Mindless pack of men-tality. Dangerous.
Those are great kitty photos and video, Tim! I love the photo of Spunk’s face through the tube. The Eye of the Hurricane. 🙂
Thanks, Lavinia. That is a good description of Spunk eyes.
HaHa! Funny, my cats never got a whole roll to play with. But Alex and Paco would unroll it in the bathroom, as would my dog Zaire. Love seeing the Price kitties having a different way to play. 😻
Thanks, Susan. They don’t pull it off the roll in the bathroom. Although Spunk shredded rolls of paper towels in his youth.
Cats have to “roll” with the times! 😉
They certainly do, and then make the best of it. Thanks,Allen.
The toilet paper never stood a chance!
The remains show the gusto used by the furries! Hahaha!
It didn’t. Thanks, Inchcock.
That’s so good Timothy. You made my evening 👏
Thanks, Gabriela. Happy to make you happy. How’s your ankle and Maya?
My pleasure. You really made my evening. Maya is with me trying to console me. It’s going to be a while until I can see real improvement.
You guys enjoy your evening. Hugs to everyone 🤗
I have the kitties send purr vibes to help heal you ankle. I send you good vibes, also. Being down with a bad ankle is no fun.
Thank you Timothy. That’s so sweet of you 😻
Have at it yourself, Tim. It looks like fun. Where did you find Spunk’s tiger tail? I think you told us a quite a while ago, bit I forget.
Hi Susan. The tiger tail is his third tail. He totally wore out his leopard tail he played with for years. We got him another leopard tail, but it’s small, so I got him the tiger take. He places all three of them in different places around the house every night. The original tail is a rag now, but he still makes good use of it.
Wow, the TP is like catnip for them!
I guess so. Thanks, John.
Hahaha! Tim, I laughed so hard when I saw this. The kitties are so proud of themselves! The video is priceless!
I’m happy you got a good laugh out of it. The kitties are so silly. Thanks, Mia.
Serious shredders! It’s hard not to laugh when the kitties are having such a good time!
Excellent title! Cats just think we should have litter boxes. Anything less is worthy of destruction.
That seems to be the case. Thanks, Cindy.
Cats sure are vandals but have such a delightful time, you can’t help but laugh.
Cats are non-stop entertainment. Thanks, Couriers.
….poor rolll!!!!! 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂 Brilliant shots!!!
Thanks, Marina. Happy you got a laugh out of it,
I LOVE this:):):)
That first shot is fabulous!
And why in the world are people so nuts over toilet paper! I understand the need… but really now!!
So glad to see Spunk having fun at home.
The toilet paper rush is a mystery. Spunk was happy I got some. Thanks, Nancy.
They had great fun ! Our cat is to lazy to play, she sleeps all day and night 🙂 🙂 🙂
Our kitties sleep enough to build up energy to destroy things. Thanks, picpholio.
ah ah !! your cats had a blast shredding the toilet paper 😅. Like us in France, when the confinement was announced, people rushed for toilet paper and robbed everything in supermarkets.😮
It’s such a mystery in these modern times. Thanks, Angelilie. How are you doing these days?
Thank you Timothy, I’m fine despite the Covid 19. We are still confined and tomorrow is Black Friday in France. Hope you are doing well too. Kisses Timothy from Paris.
Our Black Friday was last week. I didn’t go out at all. All the kitties send you hugs and kitty kisses.
I prepare Santa Claus to arrive on my blog lol ⛄ Lots of kisses and hugs to your cats 😻
LMAO!! Tears in my eyes!! Oh yes we have been there! Bless you for the belly laughs, Tim!! xo
So happy to give you a good laugh. Crazy kitties. Thanks, Amy Rose.
Big Smiles Tim… They look to be have great fun… I bet the clearer upper did too 🙂 lol.. 🙂
I’m waiting until they have the roll down to the tube to clean up the shreds. They still play in the shredded paper. Thanks, Sue.
Enjoyed… After seeing the mess, It’s a toy I will not be sharing with Biscuit.. lol… 🤣😂
Unless Biscuit discovers it. That’s how our cats did. They are always determined to get into a box and in this one they found treasure.
Some serious shredding there!
How artistic of them.
They are artistic cats. Thanks, Shey.
Haha! I’m laughing out loud! That is so funny! I’ve had cats in the past that had vengeance for toilet paper rolls, what a mess!
You know cats, Tiffany. Cats love messes to play in and making masses to play in. Thanks.
The sacrificial roll here is the last cinnamon roll. 🙂
Cats love toilet paper. One of our early cat blog friends loved toilet paper. His mom had to buy a child-proof lock to secure the TP. He knew how to open cupboards.
Kitties can be determined. Thanks, David.
What fun they provide to themselves and those lucky enough to look on…
Never ending fun. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
Never knew a toiltpaper roll could be so much fun 🙂
It is all kinds of fun. Thanks, Harry.
So funny. My cat has appointed himself sheriff of Christmas town as you can see on Instagram.
He says the towns not big enough for the two of us. 😊
Kitties are comedians. I can imagine what you cat is doing. I don’t have an Instagram account so when got to your account it won’t let me go beyond the login.
Rats. Maybe I can send it to you. It’s Coolsville.
I would ove to see it.
Your mail address ?
Seriously awesome ~ these are the moments that make a day shine. Cats and dogs really do make the world go around sometimes. 🙂
The kitties go crazy and everyone has fun. Thanks, Randall.
As long as that is not the state you find it in once you need it 😀
True. That’s why is sacrificial. Let the kitties have it. Thanks, Jesper.
Hilarious! I love the look of sheer satisfaction on Spunk’s face! That was fun … lol
Thanks, Julie. They were all quite sataisfied with themselves.
OMG!!! This is too, funny! Spunkie-Poo 💋 really knows how to beat the ship out of roll of TP!
Silver and Marble do a pretty good job, too.
I haven’t been able to put TP on the roller thing in the bathroom, since Johnny discovered it 12 years ago. He stands on hind legs, and unrolls the whole roll of TP with his front paws, then mutilates it quite nicely.
Hi Resa. Fortunately, our cats have not figured out how to unroll TP from the dispenser. Spunk doesn’t mess around. He takes everything he does quite seriously.
He’s totally recovered from is three-week kitty sabbatical and ornerier than ever.
i think you found spunk’s wormhole
He may have been sucked right through a TP tube into an alternat kitty dimension. Thanks, Holly.
just the right amount of focus . . . and . . . poof!
No comment …. 😊
Thank you for the No comment, Anabel. 😻
