They are very good at that! Lightning LOVES to tear up paper. Especially paper towels. He gets very stressed when I have to take him to the vet, so when we get in the examination room I give him a paper towel or 10 to shred to take his mind off things. It's the only thing I've found that helps. I pick up the pieces before leaving the room.
Lightning, that is creative of your Ma to give you paper towels to shed at the vets!
Melikes to shred paper too. At home, it's pretty Worm-proofed so i don't get to.
But when i got taken to the mall, I got antsy & a bit barky at Macy's. So when we got to the shoe dept, my person let me "help" them "process" all the paper & paper balls from the shoes & shoeboxes. it kept me quiet, and if u asked me, i did a great job "processing."
up until that point, my person didn't know that i like to shred paper so much...
Gotta say they're WWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY cuter than an ugly paper shredder! Doppler loves to shred paper products too. When we give him a roll from the paper towels, he carries it all over the house for about 5 minutes before he sets down to shred it. We think he's verifying that he can have it but more than likely he's just finding the best possible place to make a mess. But they are cute when they're tearing apart your papers.
