"Someone said to me 'when you heard the noise why didn't you check to see if the cat was in the machine', but how many times do you check to see if the cat is in your washing machine?"

Anyone with a pets and a freaking brain you ridiculous twit! NOBODY in this house starts the dryer, washer, or even oven without first double-checking to make sure that none of our 5 cats jumped in. And we always check it if it's making, you know, un-washer/dryer like noises like, say, a cat's terrified shrieks/meows. That's just us, though.

My parents used to have a dryer that popped the door open automatically at the end of the drying cycle. As the dryer got older, it took two cycles to dry the laundry.

One day, mum was doing the laundry when, unbeknownst to her, the cat climbed into the open dryer to nap on the warm, damp cothing. Mum shut the door and sent the laundry for its second spin.

The next part is horrifying, of course; she goes back later and finds blood everywhere, and one very dizzy cat.

Her and dad bundle up the cat and rush to the vet; anazingly, the cat is mostly okay, except for the tail, which is so busted up that it has become paralysed. The vet warns my family that the tail will likely die and fall off.

Fast forward to the night my parents are going out on a date with another couple. The cat has recovered nicely, at this point, but that tail is dead as a doornail.

Everyone is dressed up, ready to go out. The couple has no idea there's anything wrong with the cat. Dad calls the kitty to the house so she'll be inside while they go out. It's all a matter of bad timing, really. Kitty ran in as somebody took a step. Kitty ran into the basement. Tail remained underfoot. Guests were horrified.

True story, bro.
