tossed around inside a washing machine for almost two hours

Just how LONG was that washing machine cycle?

Lucky cat. Years ago, we had one that liked to sleep in the dryer. In that case, not so lucky :-(

My BS meter is buried. Most wash cycles are nowhere near two hours. Did the lady wash the cat multiple times? I have treated cats that got caught in the washers and dryers. The outcome is not very successful in many of the cases.

Search for San Francisco explosion.

It was a research lab, and a mixture of methane, nitrogen, and helium exploded, killing the scientist and injuring a woman who was nearby.

Huh, the link says, “1-dead-2-hurt...,” but the title of the article says, “1 Dead, 1 Hurt In Menlo Park Explosion & Fire.”

Sure, washing them is fine. It’s when you dry them...
