  Kitten survives tumble drier spin
Updated 06 February 2004, 16.45
Mia the cat survived a spin in a tumble drier
A little kitten from Cornwall is lucky to be alive after spending 40 minutes stuck in a switched on tumble drier.

Six-month-old Mia decided to jump through the open door of the dryer for a cat nap, but her owner didn't notice her inside when she switched it on!

Halfway through the 90-minute cycle Nikki Reed, 35, noticed a strange smell and found a very hot little kitten.

Mia was rushed to the vets and for a while they weren't sure if she'd be okay, but now she's fine (and fluffy).

Mrs Reed's husband told the Daily Mail newspaper that Mia used to love wandering all over the place, but since her tumble in the drier is less adventurous.

And he added: "Whenever we put the tumble drier on, she legs it."
