Subby, let me guess, you own at least three cats.

about 20 years ago, my mom's neighbor comes over banging on the door at 6:30 in the morning, utterly hysterical...crying, wailing, the whole nine yards...We think somebody's broken into her house or her kids are hurt or some other horrible thought. No...it turns out that she had started her car and there was cat asleep under the hood...My step dad and I went over and hosed off as much of the blood and cat chunks as we could and she eventually went to work...stupid cats....and stupid people for letting them wander around...

On the kitty theme, our kitten went in to the ICU yesterday with septic peritonitis. She went in to surgery this morning. She's only 13 months old. ;_;

/blood work came back normal, is that a sign we maybe caught it early?

Went to start my car one morning and heard an odd thumping noise so I checked under the hood and saw a couple of beat up kittens that were hiding in the fan. Took them to the vet but they didn't make it. Sad day.

Failauthor said "engine block". You could argue that most of the front part of the car is "engine" (engines don't last without their radiator, alternator, etcc), but inside the "engine block" would require the thing be inside a cylinder (and crawled in and out of a valve...).

I'm used to this idiocy from TVnews links. But if the Post is this stupid, are you limited to bbc.co.uk/Americas and the Christian Science Monitor for news?

People don't know how to treat their most valuable possessions. They let their cats and kittens wander the neighborhood. They fill their garages with garbage and leave their 40K cars parked outside.

If people stopped using their garages as crap warehouses so they could park their cars inside and they kept their cats and kittens in the house, there wouldn't be sad stories of kittens mangled in engine compartments.

I don't have a garage...and my cat stays in the house.

/can't say the same for other peoples cats, but if they crawl up under the hood of my truck, well too bad, not my fault...

Csb time: My mom worked 2nd shift at a factory growing up. So she come home at midnight and park her car. Well we all know an engine compartment is warm place and the cats knew it. One night she had to run to the Wal-Mart. Fired the car up and we then had a bobbed tailed cat.

My dad took me fishing one time when I was a kid. When we got up to the lake and went to back the boat down the ramp we discovered our neighbors cat had ridden the whole way on the rear bumper of the truck. Smart cat...if he had jumped off at even a low speed he most likely would have been run over by the boat trailer. So, we figured he earned it, we took him out fishing with us.

/that cat really loved the "catching" part of fishing.
