3/4/09 : No Joking Matter

Postby kiatrix on Wed Mar 04, 2009 7:24 am

Obviously, most sane people reading your comic would never put a cat in a dryer. However, please do keep in mind that this actually will kill a cat. And unfortunately, not everyone is sane. :(

If you (or anyone) owns a cat, especially warm-loving-inquisitive kitties and you're putting laundry in the dryer, be sure to make sure your kitty isn't in there, and if you do hear any banging sounds from the dryer, check it! Please don't assume it's just your tennis shoe that got stuck in there accidentally.

Just a friendly soapbox warning from a WoW playing veterinarian that loves Eben and Snooch. :)

I'm trying to NOT be snarky here, but we get these kinds of emails and messages every so often, and it makes me wonder why we don't get them MORE.
Other things that will kill your cat:
- Putting them in a washing machine (Snooch has done this)
- Letting them play with acetylene torches (again, Snooch)
- Giving them Vodka
- Letting them fly to Reno and play roulette
- Leaving them on the streets of New Orleans
- Feeding them hallucinogenic amounts of Nutmeg
- etc.

I feel the need to point out, yet a-gaine, that Eben and Snooch are not real.

None taken! I just wonder why some strips trip people's Warning Switch, and others do not.

You know, I think it's a matter of plausibility and lack of actual knowledge.

Obviously cats play with wielding torches,
a washing machine fills up with water, so everyone knows that's bad. Vodka for a cat, bad as well just based on size and hangover.
but a dryer seems like it might just be a warm fuzzy carnival ride. People forget that's its an hour about the big bump on the drum intended to keep the clothes moving, or how hot it gets.
