    Default FL Cat Floods Animal Shelter

    Cat blamed for turning on faucet, flooding Florida shelter



    Some cats at the Florida Humane Society in Pompano Beach had to be taken out of the facility last week because of flooding.


    POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A cat came with a flood warning when it was adopted from a Florida animal shelter.

    Officials at the Florida Humane Society in Pompano Beach tell the Miami Herald that one of its cats turned on a faucet last week, leaving the water to run for 17 hours.

    President Carol Ebert says the flooding caused water to run out the shelter's back door. No animals were injured, but the shelter is seeking donations to repair floors, cabinets and other damage estimated around $5,000.

    Volunteer Terry Arbour says the shelter suspects a 6-month-old kitten known to play in the sinks.

    The cat's name was not released. Arbour says the cat was recently adopted and its new owners were told it was "intelligent enough to turn on water faucets."

    lol, me too. The quirkier the better.

    But...why were the cats left alone for 17 hours?

    I noticed that too and did a double-take.

    If it was over the weekend, maybe someone just checks on them once a day?
    As Canadian as possible under the circumstances

    Because Florida Man was babysitting them and left briefly to go eat someone's face.
