I was so freaked out when I came home & found him out. Both times I had come home from dealing with medical emergencies with my daughter and it was after 1:00 AM. The thought of what could have happened was so upsetting that I couldn't even calm down enough to go to bed.
Since I posted the hudini remark, he has broken yet another food dish, I called myself locking it in and I was only a few feet away, when I heard it crash. The way I "locked" it wasn't effective. Now I need to buy new dishes.
