On Thursday morning, Humane Society president Carol Ebert got a call at 7:15 a.m. that water was running out the back door of the Florida Humane Society. Staff members initially assumed a water pipe had burst but when they investigated further, they discovered that a faucet in a cat room had inexplicably been turned on. The Humane Society suspects a 6-month-old cat may be the culprit.
“We can’t be sure which cat did it, because we don’t have cameras in there, but we have a good idea because there was one younger female cat who really liked playing in sinks,” said volunteer Terry Arbour. “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.”
