Sorry to all who tried this, but maybe it worked for you. After 3 weeks my tissue killing Quad struck again....

see this thread to hear the "supposed fix" LOL

Here's the result from last night, notice the coke bottle tube right in the middle of it, LOL.

WOW lol! I'm so glad Mischa doesn't care about toilet paper!! What a mess! I wouldn't give up on it...try it again. Do you ever close the bathroom door so they can't get in there? The pictures are so funny! :laughing: :cry:

LMAO!!!:laughing: I'm sorry but that's just to funny!!! Aren't kittens great!

I say build a little cupboard around the TP dispenser, with a little door, so you can just open the little door to get TP, but keep kittens out.

:laughing: that's telling you.....that's too cute.

This is what may work...:lightbulb:under the role of paper, directly below, put a small tupperware container , no more than 2-3 inches high. They will need to get into the water to get to the paper...they won't...or will they:shrug:

I had my cats do asimilar thing, but randomly. Since I put a small container for a litter box..they don't want to getinto it to get to the paper...will it work for your cats....:shrug: you can try with water...

Bwaahahhahahahahah....too funny.

I had been pretty good about not leaving a roll in the bathroom on the roller. Yesterday I thought maybe the kittens have forgotten. I made sure there was none hanging down or anything.

About an hour later I came upstairs and sure enough the entire roll was in my bedroom just shredded. :o I'm thinking it'll be a while before I can leave some on the roller again. At least I only have TWO to try to outwit. dmc you have twice that many. My older ones just watch the kittens and look at me like, "Wasn't me!"

I dunno, I have doubts about that box. I don't see a latch on it. In my experience, just let cat or pup see you once lift the lid yourself and they will then attempt it themselves. Especially the cats, you know, curiosity - gee she's got something in there she's hiding from me, better investigate. :D

Depends on the weight of the lid,
Trust me no cat can lift that lid,
Neither can my small dogs, a bigger dog maybe,
but they'd even have some troubles,
The lid is not light or thin.
I've used this for yrs,
With my bigger dogs, few yrs back, I just sit added weight on top,
I've never once encountered a problem with this.
----
The Pop/plastic covering unfortunitly I knew wouldn't work,
It's only a temp fix.
Lest thats how it was for me and my sister when we tried it yrs ago,
To simple and easily defeated by smart animals :)
Didn't take long for them to figure it out.

It appears, Diane, that cats are either smarter or just have more dexterity than English Setters because your soda bottle fix seems to be working for me! :thumbs up

I remembered it from back in October and instituted it after Brier ate a whole roll of toilet paper a few days ago :yell: *sigh*

He's looked at it a few times, but so far (knock on wood, :fingerscr) he's been unable to figure it out. :D

So thanks for the fabulous idea! :highfive:
