This was in one of the Australian papers today! I mean it's a wonderful story that this little baby cat survived, but have you seen how CUTE Kimba is!?!? To lose such a wonderful little creature would have been heartbreaking! Now this will be a lesson learned for Lindsay and anyone with kittens doing laundry. Cats do have nine lives, but let's not take advantage of them ;) This is exactly what was quoted from digitalspy.com.
I want to adopt this little fella! Mrs. Rogers is a lucky lady! I melt.
"A kitten in Australia has survived a 30 minute wash and spin cycle after sneaking into the machine without its owner realising.
Lindsay Rogers told the Manly Daily that 4-month-old Persian Kimba had snuggled into the dirty clothes in the machine while his back was turned.
Rogers said: "I put the clothes in, put the powder and the fabric softener in, put it on a cold wash - which was very lucky - and put it on for a 30-minute cycle.
"When I opened the door, it just went ‘meow’ and stuck its head out. I couldn’t believe it - the spin cycle at the end goes really fast and I couldn’t believe it survived.”
He added that Kimba recovered and was "purring like a little motor" following emergency medical treatment at Allambie Vet, including the use of an intravenous drip.
After the news broke, Rogers said: "It's stirred up a bit of a hornet's nest. I had Channel 9 asking if they could come over, and I said, 'Sure, but Channel 7 has already been here'."
