Yesterday I lost my wonderful beautiful fur baby Squish. I was doing some prep as we are due to go away in two days and we had a lot of washing to do so I was putting laundry I the washer. I noticed the load in the tumble drier wasn't completely dry so I closed it up and put it on. Two hours later I went to check it. There was a weird smell and mess on the clothes, I said to my partner 'blood cat I think he's messed in the drier..... Then I saw my beautiful baby. I can't overly remember what happened then other than I know I pulled him out screaming. My partner tried to take him away and check him but it was too later. He'd died.
The worst thing was he just looked like he was sleeping. I feel heart sick and so guilty. Why didn't I check the machine before switching it on, how could I have done this? Going through every what if and I should have. Every time I close my eyes I relieve finding his little body and it's breaking my heart in two. I can't stop crying and I can't function right now. The house is so quiet and empty without him. I just don't know what to do, I miss him terribly already and keep thinking I see or hear him coming in from another adventure. He isn't there winding around my legs when I go to the kitchen. I feel so incredibly guilty - my little fur baby was so full of life and because of a split second decision I ended that spirit and life and I'm broken now because of it

Oh I am so sorry for the heartache you are suffering over
the loss of your baby. I haven’t been on this site for a very long time. I had lost my little pug boy Tonka, in March 2013 and this site helped keep me sane when I was going through the horrible grief. I just decided to check in for a moment tonight and I landed on your post. I couldn’t believe it. The exact thing happened to me many years ago with one of my kitties. I had been doing a lot of laundry that day. Washer and dryer were located in the garage. The dryer was overheating so I threw a load in and left the door open to give it a chance to cool down a bit. My cat jumped in at some point while the door was open. Later, I went out, shut the door and turned the dryer on. The neighbors heard me screaming down the street. I am so sorry you had to go through this. The only thing that gave me solace was the fact she likely was knocked out very soon. What happened to your baby was a terrible, terrible accident. Believe me I know how bad you are hurting right now and I know the horrible guilt! Right now, there is no getting around the pain but Petloss is a beautiful and comforting destination when the pain seems unbearable. Come here frequently; you will find solace! Squish is fine now. Her little spirit is free; I have my faith and that faith includes all of God’s beautiful critters. ❤️
