cats  how to


Question by  worker1595 (19)

What do you do to keep kittens out if the car;s engine?

We lost one kitten this way and I don't want it to happen again.

The easiest way would be to house the cats and car in seperate places so that the cats cannot get to the engine. If this isn't possible, then give the cats a more desireable source of heat. Cats are more sensitive to cold than humans, so they will cuddle up to the best source of warmth they can.

My strongest recommendation, keep them inside. They crawl into the engines for warmth so if this is their behaviour it's not going to change. Your other option, always check under the hood before starting the car.

The easiest and safest way to prevent an awful death like this would be to keep your cat inside. It is the best way to keep cats from getting disease or dying from accidents.

Each morning before starting your car, I would highly recommend banging on the hood of the car as loud as you can, before you start it (this should scare the kitten away, and have it jump down so no harm is done). If you have a garage, you could also park your car in it.

I have heard that you should honk the horn a few times before starting the car. The horn scares the kittens and they associate the loud bad noise with the car. You can also try to spray the car with bad-tasting product they sell at the pet store.

First and most important, keep your kittens inside. That is the safest place anyway. Another choice is to offer a warm, safe spot nearby as a substitute.
