Cat in the Microwave


I can’t do it. I just can’t do it. Regardless of the fact it is a stuffed animal, it just doesn’t feel right to me.

I have a crescent shaped pillow which I purchased several years ago which I can put in the microwave, heat for a couple of minutes and then put around my neck to help relieve stress, pain, aches in my shoulders and neck. Love it. But it was getting a little worn and the girls sometimes used it. It was great for “those times” when some heat and a little weight on your stomach can make you feel better.

So a couple of years ago I saw this….


and thought it was cute and soft and it would be a great addition. However…..

there is just something about putting a “cat” in the microwave which has never felt right. Especially when I have two cats sauntering around the apartment.

I had it packed up in a box and unearthed it a few days ago and thought I might use it again. Nope. My feelings really haven’t changed. There is just something wrong about putting the cat in the microwave and then wrapping it around my neck. But it does make a great pillow to help prop up my head when reading in bed.

So, at least for now, the cat is safe from the microwave.


  1. That is just so funny!
    I have one of those pillows too - and I feel the same way. Especially difficult since it looks just like my beloved Odie who passed away a year ago!

  2. oh my god yes too funny someone got me one of these yrs ago for my bday and I sold it at the yard sale of my sister in laws and just never did understand how someone could just use that and put it in the microwave too funny dear . Have a good one .

  3. So funny! & so true. Your cats would get revenge at that "crazy cat" hour that they all seem to have!

  4. Haha! Yes that is so true. Cats and microwaves should just not happen.
