  • My Snowball used to do that! I noticed that she did it right before she circled around to go to sleep. I had to always make sure there was no paper of ANY kind laying around when I left the house.

  • Not every cat does it, but it's not really all that uncommon... Some cats just like the feeling. And think of it this way, it's better than shredding your furniture to pieces!

  • Oh that brings back memories! My kitty that passed,Bear,used to do this. It was hilarious! Maybe its like tearing a mouse apart in his mind,who knows!

  • My cat's love affair is with rolls of toilet paper. She just slaughters it.

  • Yes I have had cats do that. Your cat is just playing, or its bored and just trying to find something to do.
