Flashback Friday....

While looking through my pictures for a classic Flashback Friday for Milk-Way
I found this one of the Diva in a totally un-Diva like place the dryer...
We've had our new washer and dryer for several years.  This was taken in our old dryer.  I expect the picture is 5 or 6 years old...not quite as old as some of MW but definitely a CLASSIC!!!
Go ahead everyone tease her big time!!
Mom and I have a very personal note to share here....our dear feline friend Kareltje and his Mom, Anya, shared very sad news with us yesterday.  Anya's husband had a very serious heart attack on June 2. He is in critical condition.  Anya and her family need all of our prayers and thougthts during this very difficult time. God Bless you Anya and your daughters and give you strength.
Madi and Mom


  1. I hope you used dryer sheets so there won't be any static cling!

  2. Madi, you are a silly girl!...Static cling=can you imagine your furs standing up in every direction?!!

  3. continued...............Happy Friday beautiful girl!!...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  4. Hi Madi and Mom, we were so shocked and saddened to hear the news on Kareltje's blog.
    Sometimes life is unfair. We were worried as we hadn't heard from Anya which was unusual.
    Don't worry we are praying over here in Scotland and we reckon with all of us bloggers all around the world praying that is a mighty power force.
    On a lighter note......well perhaps not! Our mum's friend did climb into the tumble dryer when the door had been opened half way though for some clothes to be removed. We guess kitty could not resist the warm sheets........however the door was then closed!
    Fortunately our mum's friend went to check the noise coming from the dryer and poor kitty had to be rushed to the vet. She did survive but lost the tips of her ears!!!!!
    So the moral of the story is - dryers may look cosy but they are very dangerous.
    Having said all that you do look very cute.
    Apologies if we told you that story before but your pic reminded us.

  5. ps our mum's friend was not in the dryer!!! Please insert cat as appropriate............!

  6. Hi Madi & Mom,

    It was quite a shock to hear about Anya's husband. I had just been thinking about sending her an email to check in. With so many prayers from around the world things just have to be okay.

    You found a great hiding place Madi until someone opened the door. I have a photo of Tasha inside our old drier and she took up a lot more of the space than Madi does. I'll have to post that photo sometime.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    Judy and Cindi Lou

  7. Our kitties are kind of older and don't go near the dryer, but the Moms always double check for felines before starting it, just out of habit from when they had kittens. That doesn't sound right..the Moms never gave birth to any kittens, but what I mean is over the years there have been kittens here. Anyway, they do get into things.

    I hope your friend makes a full recovery. Will keep paws crossed.

    wags, Lola

  8. I DON'T want to picture you going round and round! BAD place to be! Sure glad you are smarter than that nowadays. hehe
    Prayers for Anyas husband.

  9. I think you better consider "air" drying

  10. We have a pic of my youngest in the dryer.
    He was always crawling in there.

  11. Oh Madi,

    You looks most DIVA like and comfortable in the un-Diva dryer. :)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

    PeeS We are praying for your friends

  12. OMy Gosh...that would be so cool to see all your furs sticking up all overs da place. Then everybuddy would be wondering if you stuck your paw in a socket and then you'd haves to say "oh no, I was in a dryer"...couldn't you just imagine da look on their faces....hehehehehe! Oh me, I am just too much fur my own good.

  17. Madi, as always you are totally adorable.

    We are so sad to hear about Anya's husband......we're purring, but more importantly our mama is praying for them.


  18. This is too funny... Mommy couldn't find me on Wednesday and she thought I might be in the washer! Of course I was just sleeping where she didn't see me...

    We left a message for Anya. Many prayers to her.

  19. Madi, you are too funny! Maybe you're PURRtending to be at the salon? We were sad to her about Anya's husband as well. We are purraying that he gets well soon.

  20. I hate that I didn't think of this last night....

    Dryer sheets so there won't be any CATIC cling.

    There, I feel much better now! :)

  21. Great shot!
    Your friends are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Happy Friday!

  22. Aw, Madi! You looks so cute! My mom always checks the dryer for kittehs. They sure do seem to like it in there.

    I'm very much sorry to hear about your friend's husband. How scary! Mom will be praying and my paws will stay firmly crossed in hopes that he recovers soon.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  23. That news was so sad....I saw that yesterday too.
    Love the pic! Have a fun filled weekend!

  24. We were so sad when we heard the news about Anya's husband. We are sending strong purrs for him.
    You do look cute in their Madi. Our mum is such a worrier. She keeps checking the washer in case we are in it even though she saw us 5 minutes earler asleep on the bed.

  25. Madi-- I have a very long story about a cat and a dryer I will tell you sometime!

    Will be thinking of your friends and sending positive thoughts!

  26. Amazing the places kitties can get into!

  27. I am very sorry to hear about your friends. I'm also shocked at the photo you posted today. Un-diva like? Shame on the paparazzo!
    Madi to the rescue: Thanks for the pregnant cat feedback. I'm pretty safe thanks to mom. Mom's the one getting nailed BOL Six weeks or so, you said. Ugh. The truth is, she's calmed down quite a bit. Maybe the pregnancy hormones are going up and down and up and up... :)

  28. HI Madi
    The dryer is a wonderful place. We all love getting in it. I think you have purrfect taste!

    We didn't know Anya but we went over and sent our purrs to help lift her husband back to good health...we were sadden to learn that this had happened...




  29. Hi, Madi!
    That looks like a scary spot!
    What were you doing there??
    Paws crossed for your friend!
    Kisses and hugs

  30. Our mom freaks when we go near the dryer!!

    We're purring for Anya's husband.

  31. Oh careful, that could get scary fast!!

    We also, are praying and crossing paws for Anya's husband and family.
    Smileys & Snuggles!
    Dory, Bilbo and Jacob (and Mama)


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
