I have the same time frame with my critters. The cats and Tilde need to see the vet soon for various reasons, not the least of which is vaccinations coming due soon.
I really hope that you can get a washer. Maybe, the next time Ds is coming over, if he will agree, trying H4H? Our....all the way down in Sonoma, darn...has appliances usually.
Prayers for all of your needs.
