    If it still works hang onto it until something that causes to not work happens (hopefully it wont). The one you have now is probably better than a refurb.

    If it still works keep the money until you need to spend it. LOL and don't kill the cat everyone makes mistakes.

    Throw the cat out the window first, then figure out what to do with the droid.

    Beat cat with Droid, takes care of cat, and provides damage for a turn in. At least, unless asurion sprays said Droid with luminol... ;)

    Take the battery door off your droid, on the top left next to the little recycle bin logo, theres a circle with a WHITE piece of paper with little red x's. When water touches that it becomes a solid bright RED indicating it got wet. If you also look on your battery theres another indicator.

    I like all the posts on what to do with my stupid cat lol. For now i think im going to keep my droid as it is as of it works like nothing ever happened to it. What i did was i took it apart instantly, dried what i could with tissues and used a mini shop vac to suck out water and believe it or not it worked really well. After that i set it infront of the woodstove for 3 hours and worked like a charm. My droid was about 4 feet from the fire so it didnt get hot but my woodstove room is dry like a desert so worked great :)

    Cats are evil...well some are anyways...glad to here it still works and if it does it should continue to for a long time. Oh BTW did your cat become an "outdoor cat"?

    Urban legend. Rice is dry, so it will absorb water it comes in contact with. But it doesn't have magic in it that will cause water to seem out of nooks and crannies inside the phone. You'd be better off leaving the phone open and out of rice for better airflow. Dry air will remove moisture better than rice will.

    The Droid was specifically designed by Motorola to be steel and heavy to beat cats to death if needed.

    Hmmm...I think soaking the cat in water (an eye for an eye) would be proper punishment (cat's hate water right?), or perhaps designating it as a permanent rag towel to wipe wet stuff lol...For those also stuck in this predicament, can I recommend heading over to this thread about properly drying your droid/electronic after suffering a submersion:

    The comments about stupid cat are funny but in truth she did nothing wrong. People want to kill lions who attack their lunch-to-be with the same illogic.

    Tried that with my wife's Gleam, & unless you read my post about me giving up my new every two to get her a Rogue for Christmas, you know how THAT turned out ;).

    :rofl3:

    I have a cat that is as clumsy as a cow, knocks things over all the time, but dammit, I love him.
