I'll post all the details later but...
Haji was playing on some metal shelves in my bathroom that are unsecured and free standing. He tipped them over and when he did the bottom rung of the shelves snapped the water intake PVC pipe to the toilet and water went EVERYWHERE! a 1/4 inch pipe spewing water for a solid 10-15 minutes.
I live in a self managed condo building and none of us knew where the water shut off was. Had to call 911 (fire station is 2 doors down) and they came and turned off the main water supply to the building.
Now I am waiting for the 24 hour plumber and my homeowners insurance claims inspector to come out.
What a cat!

good news: Insurance company is here and they are already starting the cleanup! Can't believe it's so fast! But it's better than water everywhere overnight.
Here's some pics. all the cleanup folks love haji and the story. Haji is behaving like a supervisor. And Haji has yet to apologize. He likes all the attention. Jerk.


Broken pipe


The shelf that tipped and broke the pipe (it's in the dumpster now)



The worst of the water damage in a storage unit (no property damage)


Inspecting the job


The plumber. Haji's new buddy.

Okay, the funny is over. The noise is pretty loud from the fans and poor haji is growing tired of it. I think the stress is making him grow some hair (haha, instead of losing it!). Thankfully, the fans will be gone tomorrow and I hope Haji can relax. This is all a bit much for him.
Working with the insurance company. Keep your fingers crossed that my only costs will be the deductible.
I'm actually feeling sad because I was really really considering getting a new kitten but I'm just not sure it's financially responsible of me to do so at this time.

Oh Haji!!!!! At least no one was hurt, right? Look on the bright side....at least he didn't knock over a candle/space heater/etc & start a fire. That would've been way worse....
