I have the same problem with earbuds. My ears are childsize. And my right ear is blocked by scar tissue. Head phones for me. My son keeps trying to get me to use earbuds. Forget it. They don't fit. No matter how small they are. And I am tired of arguing with him about it.

Smudge went on a rampage through the house last night...she dumped the powdered cleanser out of the cupboard under the sink, tipped over two trash cans and pulled books off the shelves.

Looks like we may have kitten teriyaki for dinner tonight!

How old is she? No toilet paper decor?

She's 12...we keep the bathroom closed so they can't get at the toilet paper. That would be a Latté trick, Kleenex, TP and paper towels. If the books had been torn up it would have been a Latté job, but they were just pulled from the shelves.

Smudge is the only one who gets in the cupboards and trash cans, too. Footprints on the stove belong to Latté. It's easy to figure out which one is the cause of trouble.

Vit...she's reading my nursing texts and looking at photo albums.

Talented Smudge! When I had cats, they also figured out how to open cupboards and would help themselves to the food. Their reading skills weren't very good though.

I had to intentionally derail the drawer I keep the plastic wrap and bags in... They can't get into the food cupboards. It's time to put the poppers back on the cupboard doors, it kept her out of them for about 6 months.

Poppers that make noise, or ones like those that are used for toddlers to lock the cupboards?

Poppers that make noise...just one that she sets off on her own will keep her at bay for a while.

That must have been a sight, maybe she sleep walks
On the bright side your floors won't be hard to clean, the soap is already applied for you!
