A kitten up for adoption comes with a flood warning after she accidentally turned on the faucet at the shelter causing a flood. While the Florida Humane Society president, Carol Ebert, reveals that they can’t be too sure which cat was responsible they have one suspect in particular who is known to play in the sinks. The kitten in question, is six-months old and has been caught in the sinks on more than one occasion.
“There was a tall spout in that sink that moves around, and the cat somehow was able to turn it on. It’s possible there was collusion from others, but she probably had something to do with it.”
The water was running for 17-hours before someone tended to it, causing an estimated $5000 worth of damage.
Fortunately no animals were hurt in the flood as the water ran out the back door but floors, cabinets and other shelter fixtures were damaged, which now require repair. The shelter is now seeking donations to quickly fix the damage so things can go back to running as they normally do. As for the mischievous kitten, she has since been adopted and her new owners were warned that she is smart enough to “turn on water faucets.”
