Keep Cats Safe In The Cold

The Guardia Civil have tweeted a plea for drivers to check around their cars for stray cats sheltering, before setting off on a journey.  In the current cold snap here on the Costa Del Sol, cats are seeking shelter inside wheel arches and engine compartments.

Cats Keeping Warm

During cold snaps like the one we are currently experiencing cats will often seek out any warm space they can find. One particularly irresistible lure seems to be the cozy confines of a warm car engine or even a wheel arch.  Unfortunately, cats that seek shelter under the bonnets of cars can then be injured or killed when that car is started.

What Can You Do?

Animal expert Jane Harrell suggests making a banging on the bonnet of your car before you get in.  “Give a little pound on your hood or slam the car door before you start [your car]. It’s always a good idea to check underneath your car to see if cats are hiding.”

“Be sure that any cats have had time to run away. Cats can tuck themselves into the tightest of spaces and may need a little extra time to wiggle out” Jane goes on to say.
