The other day I’m doing laundry and I put the load from the washer into the dryer. Before doing so, I take a blanket out of the dryer (from the previous load) and walk not 10 yards away to put it on the sectional.

Close the door and hit start. A few minutes later I happen to walk by and hear a thumping. I open the dryer and see my cat had gotten in there without me noticing. Luckily it had only been 5 minutes and though he was gasping like he was out of breath, he’s fine now, though it took a day before he would purr.

We laugh now but I shudder to think what would have happened if I didn’t notice for the entire 30 minutes. Our Google Research showed that this is not an uncommon occurrence because cats love to explore new places and warm laundry is very attractive. It also showed that many of these occurrences don't end well, so again, very fortunate.
