Someone told me they saw a toilet paper holder with a cover in a catalog 'somewhere'. Anyone seen this. I have a couple that won't leave it alone and another is trying to get it off the shelf I'm currently storing it on. I tried turning so it won't roll out and then she gets so frustrated she shreds it.

Just take the cardboard from a used roll of toilet paper, split it down the middle lengthwise and - voila! fits nicely over the roll of TP. You'll probably only need it for a couple of weeks until they get out of the habit, so it's not worth spending money on.

Balance a light weight plastic bowl about half full of water on top of the roll so that when it's disturbed, the water spills out. Yeah, it makes a mess, but I had to do it only twice to break the stubborn toilet paper dragging yearling I once had - she never touuched it again for the rest of her 17 years.

This page shows a couple of hoodes toilet paper holders (both recessed and surface mounted -- scroll a short way down the page). Would that type help? http://www.rbagroup.com.au/toiletpaper_holders.html

That might work, but I do rescue work and let the kittens and teenagers run the house with my own(after 10 days of quarentine). It would be a constant training exercise.

Weel, I've had a lot of cats in the last 35 years or so that I have been keeping cats - as many as fourteen at a time - and only a very few have defeated the trick of rolling the paper off the back, so I have had to use the water trick for only a couple of cats in all. I haven't needed to use it in almost eighteen years.

Of course, teenagers complicate the situation: it's much harder to teach them not to play with toilet paper than it is to teach cats.
