Blame the cat for the missing $40,000 diamond engagement ring.

Newlyweds Diane and Carl Buckalew left their rings in the bathroom.

Diane says she felt sick when she realized their cat Jinxe batted the rings into the toilet.

Carl called Mr. Rooter, which has a drain camera.

The Commercial Appeal in Memphis reports technicians dug a 3-foot hole near the front door of the couple's Southaven, Miss., home.

The plumbers asked Carl to flush.


Both rings were found.

The job cost nearly 900 bucks, but the couple says they're glad to pay.
