Cat Survives Horrific Washing Machine Ordeal

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Bengal crossbreed Bobby used up one of his fabled nine lives after falling asleep inside the machine while his owner put it on a 60C cycle, PA reports.

The cat was "very lucky` to survive the ordeal, with owner Lisa Keefe stopping the machine when she heard a loud thudding sound coming from inside it."


If you own cats you know that they love to sit on or by anything that`s warm: A computer, behind the fridge, a space heater, and washers and dryers.

Back in the old days, when TV sets were more substantial, my cat would stay perched on top of the warm TV, and she would come down only to eat or use the litter box.

As soon as I open my dryer my cats try to jump inside, sleeping on top of warm clothes in a dryer is their idea of paradise. I always double-check inside the dryer before I turn it on. Remember cats are lightning quick, if you look away for a split second, that`s enough time for your kitty to jump into the machine.
