That's seriously sad Sam. Wouldn't ever happen to mine as I never leave clothes inside. She climbed in as I loaded it... if I ever missed something like that I'd have to be suffering from severe diminished capacity.
Pagan, this kitten is one of the most expensive things I've bought. I'm kinda concerned that machine washing might shrink and flatten her. She has tags that specify hand washing, lay flat to dry. Machine washing voids the warranty
