Check your Hoods for Cats!

Cooler weather brings feral cats to the warmth of an engine block. If you don’t bang on the hood of your car, you just might start it and kill the cat! Not to mention, cause damage to your vehicle. Check your Hoods for Cats!


Bang on your hoods! Knock on your hoods!

In Japan, Nissan and TBWA\Hakuhodo helped to get this started and they called it “Knock Knock Cats”.  As a reminder to knock on the hood of your car. 

That banging on the hood just might scare any cat that may be inside trying to stay warm with the cool or cold weather.

Even check between your tires, that is another spot for cats to seek shelter for warmth during cold weather.

Plus, keep antifreeze out of reach so cats and dogs don’t get into it too.

Below are pictures of cats inside of cars.

  1. I am astonished that felines can get into so many of the places they do – and dirty places at that. It’s a reason we have shelters out for our feral/neighborhood friends. Safety first!
