Cats in the Toilet Paper by Helen Ross

What’s that scurrying about?
It’s the sound of tiny paws
The cats are along the hallway
What’s that between their claws?

Oh no! It’s the toilet paper
That they’re dragging behind
Along the wooden hallway
And over the kitchen blind

There’s toilet paper everywhere
They’ve left nothing bare
The cats have left a trail
While travelling without a care

Now someone is shouting
Oh no! It’s my Dad
He’s covered in toilet paper
And does look rather mad

Something’s moving toward me
Skidding on the floor
It’s Hans, our cute puppy
With paper around a paw

The cats have been everywhere
Around light shades and plants
Toilet paper’s handing in cupboards
Around our clothes and underpants

The cats have gone outside
Paper is wrapped around a pole
There seems a lot of paper
Oh no! They’ve got another roll.
