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.

shreds it.


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.

The hooded recessed one looks like a winner. Thanks.

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?

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.

Personally, I prefer moist wipes to toilet paper, so I don't have problems
with the cat shredding rolls of paper. :c)

Apart from this, you could always hang the roll from the ceiling - out of
reach. I bet your cats would find this really frustrating. he he he
