Yesterday, during a break in the California storm, my husband and I set out for errands. He started up the engine to our GMC Sierra truck and off we went. As we were driving down the street, we both heard a loud "meow" that sounded as though it came from under the hood. He stopped, looked under the truck and found our kitty, Rocky, had settled himself on top of the spare tire that was positioned under the bed of the truck. Needless to say, we turned back (Rocky was howling the whole time) and got back to the driveway where my husband took a stick to poke him out of his hiding place. Rocky didn't need much prodding and off he went. So everyone who has outdoor cats, beware of what's underneath your autos before you take off. Give them enough time to clear out. I'm sure that he wanted to stay dry, so that's where he thought he could settle down. Yep, smart cat. We placed upside down Rubbermaid totes and blankets inside (with a hole for an entrance) on the front porch and both our cats got inside immediately. They love their new igloos.
