Kitten survives hour in Aberdeen washing machine spin


Kitten survives hour in Aberdeen washing machine spin
An eight-week-old kitten has survived after being stuck in a washing machine cycle for an hour in Aberdeen.

Susan Gordon, owner of Princess, assumed she was elsewhere but the washing machine door opened to reveal her bedraggled and clinging to jeans. Princess was taken to vets and spent three nights being treated for her injuries. The kitten is now said to be fine, with no lasting damage from her washing machine ordeal. Judy Drysdale, senior veterinary surgeon from the Vets Now at Ardene House, said "Princess arrived at the clinic very shaken up and shivering, with a nose bleed and sore eyes.
"But her owner had managed to dry her off very well prior to bringing her in to the clinic.
"Princess was admitted to the hospital for emergency care, which included oxygen, and pain relief for her bruised body. "She was also placed on heat pads to bring her core temperature up to normal."

Poor baby! Thank heavens she is all right, and also that people use a much cooler wash cycle now which enabled her to survive.

Just the other day Freddie jumped in the washing machine as my daughter was filling it - thankfully she noticed before closing the door!

Glad this little kitty was ok!

That is so harrifying I can't even imagine it (or I don't want to TRY imagining it). I think that kitten used up 8 1/2 of her lives.

Thank Cod she survived!!
