Kitten miraculously survives washing machine cycle

An 8-week-old kitten has survived over an hour trapped inside a washing machine.

Aberdeen resident Susan Gordon had been unaware that her kitten Princess had crawled inside the machine’s drum when she began a wash cycle.

After realising her mistake, Gordon freed Princess, who was miraculously still alive, and quickly rushed her to see a veterinarian.

"Princess arrived at the clinic very shaken-up and shivering, with a nose bleed and sore eyes," a senior surgeon at Vets Now told BBC News following the incident. "But her owner had managed to dry her off very well prior to bringing her in to the clinic.

"Princess was admitted to the hospital for emergency care, which included oxygen and pain relief for her bruised body," she added. "She was also placed on heat pads to bring her core temperature up to normal."

Despite her ordeal, Princess is now said to be fine, and did not suffer any permanent damage.
