Curt Coleman couldn't figure out why his water bill was so high. He was out most of the day, and the only other person in the house is Crazy Eyes, his pet cat.

Then one evening, as Curt was chilling on the sofa, he heard the toilet flush. He went to investigate, but the only thing he found was Crazy Eyes. And, as usual, Crazy Eyes was sitting in the hallway with that innocent look on his face.

The investigation begins

Curt was a little freaked out. He hadn't flushed the toilet, and there's no way a cat could do that.  "Hearing someone flush the toilet when you're alone in the house is scary," said Curt.

Curt had to get to the bottom of this mystery, so he set up a secret camera in the bathroom. He rushed home later that same afternoon and checked the footage straight away.

And that's when Curt got a real shock - because it was Crazy Eyes all along! The cheeky kitty had figured out how to push down the handle and was spending all day flushing his dad's money away.

Curt shared the evidence on Youtube, along with the following post: 

"This is the reason my water bill was outrageous. He was doing this numerous times throughout the day."

Curt now closes the bathroom door before he leaves for work, and Crazy Eyes is trying to figure another way to keep himself entertained!
