Kitty dryer death shock

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A PET owner was left in a spin after find­ing her beloved kit­ten dead in­side a tum­ble dryer.

Norma Smith’s 18-week-old moggy, Brock, crept into the drum without her notic­ing be­fore she switched the ma­chine on.

Norma, from Work­ing­ton, said: “I put the wash­ing in the tum­ble dryer and set it off. I came back and heard a bang­ing noise.”

She added: “My neigh­bour had to come and get him out – I couldn’t face it.”

Norma’s other kit­ten, five-month-old Fifi, re­peated the feat a day later but was spot­ted be­fore any dam­age could be done.

Norma said: “I only had Brock for four weeks and he’d re­ally set­tled in. I feel so bad about it.”
