Check Your Engine Bay For Cats And Rodents When It Gets Cold
South Carolina is heading into a cold snap. Please remember to check your engine compartment after a night of freezing temperatures. When you get home from work in the evening, or from picking up the kids at school your car’s engine bay stays warm for quite a while. It becomes the perfect place, out of the wind, nice & cozy for rodents, cats, and even small dogs.
It only takes a minute or two before you crank your vehicle to pop the hood and make sure you scare any hideaways out. While there are stories of pets surviving miles around town and being rescued, there are many more sad stories of animals that don’t make it. It might also be a good idea to check your trunk occasionally in the winter to make sure you don’t get a rodent infestation. Trust us, it happens, especially if there happen to be any food products back there.
Remember it doesn’t take long to check and you may save a life.
