Meet Tabitha

Lol that's funny!

Surviving spin in the washing machine for an hour and 45 minute is a really long time, i must say!

Karin Bennett from Johannesburg, South Africa got really tensed when her cat moggie disappeared earlier this week.She searched every corner of her home including each room calling 'Tabitha', but the black kitty had vanished.

The 63 year old woman even went to her neighbour's home where the pet mostly visited the place but all in vain.Upon returning disheartedly, she checked all the kitchen cupboards, the oven, deep freeze and the fridge.

The cross-breed feline was finally found when the owner heard unusual noises coming from the corner of the kitchen where she had had put her second load of washing in for the day.

'Bennett was standing in the kitchen wondering how to solve the puzzle when the washing machine went 'Ting! Ting! Ting!'

'She had had problems with the machine before and assumed it was acting up again'

On seeing a furry face through the machine's glass,the lady was so scared to open the washing machine herself. She immediately callde her neighbour who switched off the main electricity supply and let the cat leave the machine.The shaken pet was rushed to the local vet for a check-up.The cat was later treated for shock, water on the lungs and had been suffering from hypothermia.

The retired cat lover told:

"The vet told me she had lost seven of her nine lives.

'I can now see the funny side of it, but you can imagine my shock.'
