A number of years ago I heard a story about a family who, upon opening the clothes dryer to remove clothing, discovered their pet cat had met its demise in the permanent press cycle. My mind rejected the notion of it because it was too horrible to think about. “How could anyone not notice their cat in the dryer?” I said in disbelief. No. It couldn’t happen. No, no, no. However, life has a way of teaching me lessons and I now know that it could happen. Quite easily in fact.
For some reason Pudgy’s curiosity puts her in dangerous situations that drive me a bit insane, but don’t bother her in the least. I’ve mentioned in a past blog that she has been stepped on, squished in the refrigerator door, and has fallen off the top of the stairs. More recently I thought my husband may have broken her leg when he forcefully closed his dresser drawer while failing to notice Pudgy was checking out the contents. She limped around for a day, but quickly recovered.
Somehow she must have sensed my cat fears concerning the clothes dryer and is trying to torture me. We have a standard top-loading washing machine and a standard front-loading dryer. As I pull clothes out of the washer I stand upright, and then I bend as I toss the wet clothing into the dryer. Up and down, up and down I go. I can’t tell you how many times I just catch a shadow from the corner of my eye, or see a grey tip of a tail moving as I’m about to shut the dryer door and start the load. Pudgy, for reasons I cannot fathom, goes deep inside the dryer and sits there. It’s not warm—yet—so that can’t be it. The clothes are wet so I’d think she’d be repulsed, but no. A death wish? Maybe.
Now I have to look around and find her before I can start the dryer. It’s becoming a fixation, and I think she’s secretly laughing about it. Nonetheless, having a living unfluffed-Pudgy in my life is glorious, and continues to be the best part of my day.
I’m not an expert when it comes to this. Didn’t even know this was possible. Useful read, appreciate your posting this.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
