Mancat Monday: The Fine Art of Shredding Tissue Paper


I’ll admit it, I love, love, love tissue paper!  I love it so much, not only is a part of our daily play time, Mom buys it at Costco in packs of 400 sheets.  I have purrfected the fine art of shredding tissue paper and I though I would share my technique with you today.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Dad usually wiggles the wand part of the Neko Fly thing under the tissue paper as an announcement to let the shredding begin.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!You got to get a good grasp on the situation and extend the claws at just the right angle.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Yes, this was a brand new piece of tissue paper when I started, can you see the firm paw and keen focus?

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Then you must grab hold with both front paws to ensure there is no escape route for the tissue paper.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Of course it is quite alright to take time out for a brief wand nibble too, that’s normal.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!And finally, the finished product all shredded to purrfection.  Honestly, it didn’t stand a chance!  I hope you enjoyed my technique and hopefully you will find something you can use should you encounter that silly tissue paper!

    We just sent Mom out the door to get us some tissue paper. That looks like great fun. Thanks for those instructions Brian. We have them all written down. Mahoney can’t wait.

    Hi Brian! Congratulations! You are a winner in my Pastel Pet Portrait Give-A-Way which was drawn this morning. Unfortunately I did not have your email address to contact you. Can you email me at so that we can arrange for you to send me a clear head study photo. Looking forward to creating your pastel portrait.

    We’ve never had any tissue paper to shred – we think it looks quite difficult so purrhaps you can give us a few hints at how to make the first shred.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

    You are lucky you get tissue paper. I keep it hidden because my kitties like to shred it and I’m not so much a fan of that..

    You know what’s even better than the wand side of a toy? One of those LONG straws that they sell for HUGE sundaes. You can bite into them without hurting your teeth. TW used them or a peacock feather to wiggle under the tissue paper. You do seem to know what you’re doing. MOL

    Brian! I too am a professional shredder – tissue paper, toilet paper, paper towels, you name it!

    Your pal, Pip
