Kitten in the Wash

A ten-week-old kitten named Molly survived a 20-minute cycle in a washing machine! Bethany Hall saw her kitten scratching against the washing machine door. Even so, the door wouldn’t open for several minutes while the water drained. Veterinarians treated Molly for eye damage and breathing difficulties.
Principal vet Jacqui Molyneux said: "Molly was brought to us in a very bad way and we thought that she wouldn't pull through. However, she proved to be a real fighter and responded to the treatment incredibly well."

Molly is one lucky (and very clean) cat! Link -via Fark

Well, this won't happen in my old and cheap washer, since you can just snap open the top and look inside at the clothes (and cat if she happened to jump in)churning in the wash!

Your equally retarded if you think that every washing machine is designed so you'd be able to see a kitten in the middle of a load of laundry...

How could you be so negligent to start up a washer with a cat in it? Maybe they should have been charged with neglect or animal cruelty.

put that stupid owner in the wash and then blog about it... its really just down to stupidity that something like this happens, seriously, when that kid is sick i'll flush her down the toilet

animals have rights, and we should enforce them too

First of all, Ari, Animals have all the rights they can forcefully assert, just like humans do.

Secondly, is this even newsworthy? I've had a kitten in the dryer before, she was completely fine, and it never even occurred to me to call the local media.

I agree with James-- one of our kittens somehow thought it was a great idea to sleep in our dryer, and ended up staying in there for 20 min. Accidents happen; and to be fair to our housekeeper, they do sound like a pair of tennis shoes...

(the kitten was fine btw... lived another 10 years)

As many wise people have said: "crap happens". The fact that the girl in question tried to get it out as soon as possible tells me she shouldn't be charged. Silly kitty probably learned it's lesson. It's gonna stay away now.
