Please Check Your Car!


Cats and other animals look 
for shelter and warm places
to hide or to sleep.
Cars are common shelter.

Other animals can get trapped 
in your car grille while driving.
It is always good to check!

  1. I've always heard that and nearly always think of it in the wintertime. Not so much here in the desert though. I just heard on some program this morning that the airport in Denver is having that happen with rabbits in the winter. So sad. These poor little four legged wonders with no homes. Makes me teary. If I could, I'd take them all in.

    1. Me too. I have soft spot for critters of all kinds. It only takes a minute to check for them. It's important.

    1. I think it is important, and easy to do. I am glad you agree.

  3. I used to think that with the car in the garage it was safe, but maybe not ... I will start checking. Your car was in the garage when your mousy moved in ... and I have had squirrels get in the garage. Good thought McGuffy Ann. Thanks for keeping us on our toes.

    1. Yes, Mr. Peebody died of natural causes, but it was in my garage. The little stinker! He was a very lucky little deermouse!

    1. Unfortunately, I have seen it a lot in rescue and as a vet tech. It really is worth taking the time to check. Even at truck stops, stray critters go under the rigs looking for warmth or shelter.

  6. We are in SC and it is chillier than usual for this time of year. We have been parking in the condo parking lot next to a construction dumpster and every time we come in there are 5 or 6 cats hanging around so we have been very aware that we need to check the car before we take off. Great reminder for everyone!! Thanks!

  7. That is such a great reminder, McGuffy Ann. We are constantly telling each other to do this in the winter...
