Another ‘cat in a washing machine’ story. This one lived and is being called a ‘miracle cat’

How many of the readers here have a fear of their cat ending up in the washing machine? Personally, I’ve always added laundry a bit at a time and made sure no cats were curled up inside because I’m EXTREMELY paranoid over washers, dryers, and ovens.

Six-month-old Poppy not only went through a 30-minute wash, she came out alive and just a bit loopy for her spinning adventure.

Owner Kim Burr told ABC News

“We got the biscuits out, looked through all the cupboards — we went all over the house, but we couldn’t find her. And then I thought … maybe. I stopped the wash and there she was.”

Poppy was rushed to Animal Medical Centre, not even knowing whether or not she was still alive. The centre posted

“Meet poor little Poppy who miraculously survived a full wash cycle!

Poppy’s distressed owners phoned Dr Lisa Towns for an after-hours consultation after finding her in the washing machine at the end of a full 30 minute cycle – ALIVE!

Understandably Poppy was freezing cold, rather bruised and battered, sore and disorientated but believe it or not, no broken bones! 
After 2 days resting on fluids Poppy felt much better and was able to go home to her eager family.

Surely this would equal around 7/9 cat lives??

We hope Poppy learnt her lesson and now realises the washing machine certainly isn’t a cosy place to sleep!”

I sincerely hope all of the readers are as paranoid as I am and check any appliance a cat can get into before turning it on.
