    So sad :( Rough neck!

    A friend of mine had a kitten named rough neck, and she was leaving to go out to dinner last night, and he was laying in the dryer! And she thought it was so cute, and that nobody would be home tonight, and that if they did come home they wouldnt put wet clothes on top of the dry clothes, so he would be fine.

    Her room mate came home, and decided to dry her bra, and didnt see him, didnt even take the dry clothes out, and she hard thumping so did the guy that was there with her, and she said the dryer was just messing up! How could she not check!

    They found blood in there, and rough neck, dead
    And to make everything worse, they threw him in a BEER BOX and put a garbage bag over him that already had GARBAGE in it

    Poor rough neck, and theres alot of snow, my friend doesnt know what to do with him because she cant burry him

    RIP Jasper. I can't believe you're gone.
    RIP Tigger...I miss you every single day.

    That is SO sad!!! Can your friend see if the vet can cremate Rough Neck???

    I had this happened to a friend of mine. Her cat was asleep in some clothes in her dryer. She thought she'd run it for a few more minutes to get them warm. Her cat died too.

    While hindsight has 20/20 vision, if it were ME, I would've taken the kitten OUT of the dryer and closed the door as an ounce of prevention.

    Unfortunately, it's a little too late for that. Such a tragedy for a small, sweet kitten.

    RIP sweet little Rough Neck. You're in a much better place now.

    Poor Rough Neck. I agree that she should call a vet about cremation. They really can't just bury him because in many states, that is considered improper disposal of a body - even though it is a cat.

    That would never happen in my house because I am so uptight about the dryer door being open even a 1/4" - that little light being on drives me nuts (its actually one of my major pet peeves!) I never even thought the cats would slip in and sleep... though it does make sense because its so warm and cozy. A perfect cat haven. That is so sad... poor little guy.

    I hope the blood stains never come out of her bra so she is forever reminded of her stupidity. And obviously your friend learned a lesson the hard way too.

    RIP sweet Rough Neck.

    That is so sad.

    I am so parinoid about my 2 climbing in there, that we never leave the dryer door open.

    I agree with Donna, the vet should be able to do a creamation. That will let them wait until the ground thaws so they can bury poor Rough neck, if that is what they would like to do.

    Many Thanks to Kay for the Picture.

    I'm sorry but I am going to come across a bit harsh but I can't help it. First of all I think your friend is seriously irresponsible! She should have NEVER left the cat in the dryer in the first place. Would she allow her child to play in the traffic? That little act had the potential to be a disaster which it ultimately became. Part of being a responsible pet owner is to foresee, as much as humanly possible, dangers that our animals might be exposed to. I also think the roommate and her friend are idiots. (Sorry again for the harsh words) I can't imagine anyone not checking to see what the noise was. This story is very upsetting to me and I don't even know the kitty involved but it breaks my heart. I hope your friend and her roommate have learned something.

    When I first read this post, I felt SO angry and sad that I couldn't reply. Your friend and her roommate really need to learn a few things!! What a total lack of responsibility!

    I totally agree with what Pam said here.
