The secret life of cat-ownership

I have a cat who's addicted to all things paper. Junk mail, wrappers, newspapers...if it crinkles, he's on it. Wadding up a piece of paper is almost like a magic trick around here; suddenly a cat appears at your side.
The upside? Free cat toys.
The downside? He's somehow messed up my printer in a unique way. Now everytime I print a document, the printer immediately follows up with a diagnostics page. Which uses an incredible amount of ink. I can't figure out how to fix this. So now when I print something, I have to turn the printer off as soon as the document finishes. If I want to print a second thing, I turn it back on, then turn it off again when it's done.
It's bizarre and annoying.
