Funny Cat Flushing Toilet Story

The truth is that a cat in Santa Clara California really did discover how to flush the toilet.  We know that the name of this cat is Gizmo and he belongs to Nick and Scarlet. Gismo was mesmerised by the toilet flush, and somehow discovered for himself how to operate the lever. Scarlet discovered Gismo's habit by accident.  One afternoon Scarlet was as far as she knew, alone in the house.  Then the toilet flushed, seemingly of its own accord.  When Scarlet discreetly investigated she discovered that it was Gismo who was discharging the cistern.  Scarlet had the presence of mind to record his procedure on camera.

How the Cat Flushing Toilet Story Was Exaggerated and Embellished

One (false) story doing the rounds Ian and Sarah [not Nick and Scarlet] kept getting huge water bills [fabrication]. They knew beyond a doubt that the bills weren't representative of their actual usage, and no matter how they tried to conserve, the high bills continued. Although they could see nothing wrong, they had everything checked for leaks or problems; first the water meter, then outdoor pipes, indoor pipes, underground pipes, faucets, toilets, washer, ice maker, all to no avail. One day Ian was unwell and stayed at home in bed, but kept hearing water running downstairs [not true, it was the lady of the house who discovered the cat's activity]. He finally tore himself from his sick bed to investigate, and stumbled onto the cause of such high water bills. Apparently this was happening all day long when they were not at home. Knowing that few would believe him, he taped a segment of the 'problem' for posterity. See more funny cat stories.

The Story Behind Smokey the World's Loudest Cat World's loudest cat

Smokey, a cat from Pitsford, Northampton, is the world's loudest cat. She purrs at an astounding 92 decibels, nearly four times the volume of your average cat. Smokey's owners, Ruth and Mark Adams, are petitioning the Guinness Book of World Records to formally recognize Smokey as the World's loudest cat. So far, Smokey is unopposed, as the title is not held by any other cat; that is, unless another extremely loud cat emerges to challenge Smokey. A few other sounds that are around 92dB:
  • A traffic jam
  • 747 coming in for a landing
  • Train whistle
  • Tractor
Note that 90-95dB is the threshold beyond which prolonged exposure can cause hearing loss. That is a very loud cat. Smokey is not quite as loud as a motorcycle, but she's pretty close.

Will an Guy Wonder - Could this Cat Gismo be a Witch's Familiar?

A witch's 'Familiar' is an assistant who helps a the witch by keeping a lookout.  Another use of the 'Familiar' is so that the witch can move un-detected, clearly that is not the case in this instance.  Will and Guy's mischievous take on this cat flush story is that Scarlet is practising her spells.
