If there's one thing most cats absolutely hate (in fact I tend to be of the opinion that there are quite a large number of things most cats absolutely hate, but never mind), if there's just one thing most cats truly loathe and detest above all other detestable things to be loathed, it would have to be ... getting wet. Oh, the humiliation! The indignity! Hell hath no fury like a kitty cat bathed (or rained upon, or sprayed, or splashed, or whatever). And make no mistake: Cats hold a hell of a grudge, too.
Anyway, considering how much most cats react to even the idea of a 30-second bath, I can't begin to imagine how upset Natasha, a Siberian Forest Cat living in Oakland, California, must have been after she went through an entire 35-minute cycle in a washing machine. I can't begin to imagine how she survived, either, but she did!
