Household hint for the cat-oriented household

At least one of our cats amuses themselves by batting at the toilet paper roll and unspooling the entire roll onto the bathroom floor. It doesn't happen often, and when it does it's more funny than annoying. But I just figured out how to prevent this, or at least minimize the mess: squeeze the Charmin. Squish the roll so you flatten the cardboard tube a bit. It won't unroll with one good tug, and the offending feline will hopefully get bored before she unwinds the entire roll a bit at a time. And it's still cute to watch.

I've been living in a cat house (heh!) for over a decade now, and I just figured this out today....
