Cat Gets Stuck in Dryer's Vent

By Robert Paul Reyes

"According to the RSPCA, a feline found herself caught in the pipework of a tumble dryer after crawling into the machine`s vent.

The cat`s owners discovered her in the tight spot, but were unable to free their kitty from the 6-in.-wide space she managed to crawl into.

Unsure what to do next, the owners called RSPCA for help."

It`s axiomatic that cats love warm dryers, whenever I open my dryer if I`m not paying attention one of my cats will jump in and snuggle in my warm clothes. I may seem like a terrible cat owner, but I`ve accidentally closed my dryer with one of my mischievous kitties inside.

I can certainly understand a feline jumping into a dryer, but until now I`ve never heard of a cat crawling into the machine`s vent.

When your cat gets stuck in a tree you call the fire department, and I guess when it gets stuck in a dryer`s vent you call the SPCA.

An officer from the SPCA greased the pipe with butter and pushed the cat out of the vent. The cat wasn`t injured, only her pride was hurt as she tried to lick off the butter from her fur.
