Nissan Reminds Drivers To Knock On The Hood To Check For Sleeping Cats Before Turning The Car On In

Last edited Wed Jan 8, 2020, 08:00 PM - Edit history (1)

Wintertime.

Cats are heat-seeking critters. If you live in an area where there might be stray cats or kittens that need a warm place to sleep, please heed this advice.

1. Is this because the cars are electric? If so, they should put some sort of noise maker, prior to ..

actually kicking the engine on, sort of like dial tone so folks would know that a line is 'live' even though the dial tone wasn't really needed...

2. This is because many cats are injured or killed by coming in contact with the fan blade.

3. Nothing to do with electric cars

Combustion engine cars stay warm after use, so when you park your car outside, a cat can sneak in for warmth.

4. I didn't realize this was such a problem. I've had snakes sneak in to get warm, but cats? Hmmm...

good advice obviously.

6. Lost a cat this way.

She crawled into my neighbor' s car and died a horrible death. This is far too common.

5. This is absolutely a real problem

I won't get into the details other than to say it happened to one of our beloved cats about 30 years ago. Heed the warning. Not doing so will weigh on your conscience for many years.

7. Little stray kittens or ferals are the most vulnerable. Get into the habit of pounding on the

hood before you get into your car.
