This week a fresh, plump roll of paper towels was brutally slain at the Institute. I was shocked to see the shredded remains in the cabinet space under the sink. The holder behind the cabinet door held only the cardboard skeleton under a thin layer of shredded paper.
Conclusion: One must not assume that adult cats have grown beyond the stage where they will no longer shred paper products. I have a feeling that more than one of our two-year-old kitties was involved in this deed. I don’t think just one kitty could shred a whole new roll of paper towels into such remarkably tiny pieces. I dug out bits of paper from the far corners of the cupboard. Mercy me, must get some child-proof locks.
