There's gotta be a market for toilet paper clips/holders that don't allow it to roll freely -- but then there would be less cute in the world!!!

P.S. Note the look of innocence! Cats must go to "it wasn't me, I swear" camp to get this skill...

 |  Jan 10, 2008 at 11:20 PM

I love the second picture. There! It is done! I shall take a nap in the delicious victory I have created!

 |  Jan 10, 2008 at 11:38 PM

Ohhhhhh kitteh can unroll my TP any time!

 |  Jan 10, 2008 at 11:53 PM

Just put it on backwards -- which might bother the ocd (raises hand) but keeps kitty from unraveling a whole roll!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 12:24 AM

Awwww .... lookit dat kidden! [SPLODE]

Ok, I've been accused of being a spammer because I wrote in babytalk. Thanks, Typepad.


I wonder if this goes through...

Estimated time between photo 1 and photo 2:

As long as it took for the human to turn around and say "come quick and look at the kitteh with the tp!"

I now have to leave the tissue box upside down because of this behaviour. They haven't discovered the toilet paper yet, but love watching the flush.

EEEEEVIL!!!!! You're too funny Meg! HEEHEE!!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 01:25 AM

I'm sure they'll figure out the backward toilet roll at some point. I just love how cats manage to look sincerely surprised at what they just did. "How'd THAT happen?" "Who did THAT?" I wish I could pull that off...

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 01:31 AM

Love the first pic! Marmie says it's a matter of life and death - evil TP! My cat's never done this, but is well known for wrestling with a roll not on the holder and using his back claws to thoroughly shred. Then he started doing it to rolls paper towels. Sigh!

I have a Christmas paper storage box (yet more things on cardboard rolls deserving of cat attacks) that was behind the headboard all year. I pulled it out and guess what? My cat said "I have keeled them for you". Yikers! Hard to wrap presents with clawed holes through the paper! What can you say. Only "Good Kitty".

I just love the cat's face and the head tilt in the first picture! Couldn't be more innocent.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 04:09 AM

I just love when they are "fixing" things!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 04:12 AM

I love the "Wha?...Who me? I've just sitting here!!" look.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 04:37 AM

Such a sweet face!
For those with cats (or in my case a dog) that does this, try stepping on/smooshing the toliet paper roll before hanging it so that it can't roll so freely. That reduces the damage a little. Or you can give up like we've did and try to keep it out of the little darling's reach.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 04:41 AM

Wbirdie, I was going to post like the exact same thing. Kitteh sez "I didn't do it! I just sit and take advantage of teh soft."

I used to have a cat that shredded the TP roll. Watching him all, "pthaa, pthik, pthaa" to get the bits off his tongue. Me, "Hey, ya got sumpin on yer chin there." And when bits stick to the back paw. Priceless.

My sister used to have big ginger kitty who liked to lightly shred the toilet paper. She rolled it back up and claimed it was "special lace patterned" paper...

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 06:07 AM

I don't know why we silly humans think that TP is ours. It was clearly invented solely for cat pleasure!
Yitzy loves him some toilette paperes.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 06:35 AM

Wasting toilet paper just for the sake of seeing something cute is totally NOT CUTE. Hey, peeople--we should be thinking of conserving our resources from which toilet paper is made of. You can put your roll of paper with the first sheet coming from the inside (near the wall) so cats won't see it dangling in free air & think it is a toy. People, GROW UP!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:02 AM

To the Webmaster: This is a very good site but can you encourage a little bit of environmental-friendliness by not posting pictures showing total disregard for materials/things like having a tiny animal swim in a bathtub full of precious water or a kitten playing with toilet paper (made from precious trees)...Maybe you should redefine cuteness. Total disregard/disrespect for the environment is NOT CUTE nor COOL!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:09 AM

See, Rina, it's at the point where I sometimes can't tell a true nuff from an ironic nuff.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:13 AM

Ummm, who's got the puddin'? I call first toss!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:14 AM

Rina - Take it easy. Why are you assuming that the TP is being wasted? Whenever my cat does this, I just roll it all back up and use it. No big deal. Plus, the TP doesn't even have to be "dangling" for my cat to unroll it. She just knows she can.

Cute, cute kitteh & pics! I had no idea TP was evil and that's why my baby girl attacks it! Whew. She has saved me!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:15 AM

Momof2kitties, just be sure you don't waste any more tp when you clean up the mess. It might get her started again.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:22 AM

Oh no, I hear bebeh polar bear fur is very good for puddin' clean up.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:31 AM

Rina dear, we consider the TP pulled off the roll by Yitz "pre-cut" for human consumption. No waste, no foul.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:32 AM

And I imagine bebeh polar bear fur is incredibly recyclable, too.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:38 AM

Um, the peeps did not waste the paper....the cat unrolled it THEN they took a picture of it. I'm am 100% positive that this was not a conservation act of terrorism. But it is really cute. Somehow, maybe I'm just not grown up enough, this picture DOES NOT make me want to run home and throw around a bunch of toilet paper. ::sigh:: maybe ine day I'll grow up to be a enviro-friendly as you are, Rina.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:42 AM

lol, Rina! great imitation of an uptight nuff! (but you forgot to say "shame on you").

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 07:57 AM

WAH! *sobs*

I cannot hear the ironic tone in Rina's voice!

WAH! *pauses for breath*

Is she a nuff or isn't she? I'll be pondering this question all day!!!


 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:13 AM

Hmm. Seems to me that this kitteh is too short to have reached a properly hung TP roll. She could only reach it if eeeevil humans left a tempting length dangling down to kitteh-height. I say ENTRAPMENT!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:18 AM

Maybe kitty reached it from his perch on the toilet.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:29 AM

*wipes brow

Kitteh saved the day!!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:31 AM

Can't resist saying (re: hover text comment) that someday kiteh may learn that this is not for wiping BROW!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:38 AM

Sorry, but what does nuff, and puddin' mean? Sure can't find them in the dictionary. I understand Rina's position. USA is the land of abundance, don't take things for granted or someday we'll wake up having NOTHING.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 08:52 AM

I have a siamese and she unrolls the paper either direction oh and the squashing the tube thing only works slightly.. Determined cat = unrolled paper. oh and waste it???? are you crazy??? we roll it back up and use it.. Like Yitzy says pre cut for human consumption.

Oh and I thank my lucky stars everyday that I live where I do. so don't think for a minute I take my life and what I have for granted.

Waste not want not as the saying goes.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:02 AM

I thank the leetle kitteh, for beating the evil out of the toilet paper for mois. Now I can roll it back up and use it without fear.
And, no, no, no, NO, you may not place it so it unrolls from the back, that is just plain WRONG. Wrong.
(takes incorrectly hung TP roll off roller and switches it around, shaking head and muttering "wrong" then getting upset because "wrong" looks wrong when you type it too many times)
Banana pudding, anyone?

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:11 AM

aww... my cat does this too! I came home one day and thought somebody had been in my house! Later I hear a mysterious noise coming from bathroom and there is my cat unrolling the toilet paper, happy and as cute as can be. I rolled it back it up and used it again.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:11 AM

First pic is PRICELESS!Totally busted! Second pic she's all "Yeah, that's right, I killed the toilet paper. Your welcome."

Ok. Has anyone visited The Daily Kitten today? There's a beautiful baby siamese named Theo! lol

[OMG, just saw him! D'awwwWWWW!!! - Ed.]

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:16 AM

i hate cats so much

[...yet your screen name means "lion"! - Ed.]

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:30 AM

I usta have a kitty who unrolled and shredded the toilet paper, but only when I left her alone overnight. It was my just punishment, in her mind. This is why I no longer have a single cat household -- kittehs need to have something to do with their time, after all!

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:52 AM

It's like the kitteh is guarding the fresh kill in the 2nd pic. Awesome.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 09:54 AM

Kitteh did not keel the eeeeveeelll TP. It isn't shredded; ergo it is not evil. Obviously, her humans had NOT provided her with suitable bedding, and she was making a point. *Frowns at thought that any kitteh has to provide his or her own bedding. What's the world coming to?*

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 10:23 AM

Adorable.. in the second pic it looks like she's surveying the area, "yep. I did good. yep. yep." And, although some of you think the kitteh did it to save us all from eeeevil t.p., it's been my own experience that cats are thinking only of themselves at all times. I think this one just wanted to build herself a comy nest.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 10:32 AM

a "comfy" nest, that is.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 10:34 AM

Awwww what a sweetheart. It's a good thing kittens are so damn wonderful and cute because we'd have to kill them for the stupid shit they do otherwise.

 |  Jan 11, 2008 at 10:35 AM

hmm I see Bookmonster and I have come to the same conclusion. Kitteh is completely self-serving.
