The problem with toilet paper

Thor and Loki finally decided to stop bolting out of the door whenever we open it.  That’s a huge improvement!  I’m pretty proud of them.  Steve and I have definitely been making an effort to play with them more as well.  However, I do still have one burning question:

How do I keep the kittens out of our toilet paper?!

It seems impossible.  Obviously, I can’t leave it on the roll because they just paw at it and unroll the whole blasted thing.  I put it up by the sink, thinking they wouldn’t risk the jump between the toilet seat and the sink.  But I was so, so wrong.  I should never underestimate how fearless and persistent these cats are.  Finally, Steve came up with the idea to place it on the little towel bar above the toilet.  It seems like they’re still getting at it, though it’s not as frequent as it has been.  I feel like there has to be a better solution.  Do they make some kind of cat-proof toilet paper holder?  Is there hope for my sad little rolls?

There is toilet paper everywhere.  Small shreds of paper littered from the bathroom to the kitchen.  It was a toilet paper massacre.

What have you done, kittens?  WHAT HAVE YOU DONE

The only time I can really get pictures of the cat or my husband — nap time.
