 i have heard of cats getting under a car hood and getting into the fan. this past summer my cousin started up his van and heard a racket under the hood. it was an old tomcat. the fan did not kill him but he was so bad we had to finish him off. he made a little snack for the buzzards.

  Yep! if that had happened to Jeff he would not have needed the car any way.  He would still be running when he crossed the Canada line.  :D  :D  :D

There was a story on the news tonight, I don't know if it was a local story or not, but, a pit bull had crawled up into the engine compartment of a pick up and had become stuck, no one knows how long he had been there, but  he ate all the wires and gas line.  The picture shows a head sticking up between the radiator and the fan blade.

When I was a kid, I heard a god-awful commotion that was a loud 'thunk' followed by the sound of a grunting bear.  I looked around the edge of a house to see a pit bull running down the road with 2 feet of galvanized pipe stuck on his head!  I caught him and tried to pull the pipe off.  It was stuck some kind of tight.  So, I got some tin shears and called a buddy from down the road.  I had never seen this dog and he was obviously distraught.  Not wanting to take any chances, I had my friend put a rifle down the pipe with orders to shoot if that dog turned on me when the pipe was free (NOTE: Adolescent stupidity was at play here.  Something that stupid should not even be attempted by a trained professional.  In fact, if you see a trained professional doing that.... He ain't no trained professional.  Back to the story.).  Finally I get the pipe cut from his nape up to his big barrel head and ease it off not knowing what to expect.  I am certain I have never seen a more appreciative animal.  To this day, I can't figure how that dog got that pipe stuck on his head that firmly.  There is no way that I could have forced it on that tight.  All I can figure is that it was next to something pretty solid to push against and he rammed his melon in there after it.  Definitely one of the stranger (but not the strangest) animal thing I have seen.  I am sure that dog is no longer with us as that was long ago, but I'll bet he would remember me to this day.  He sure took an immediate liking to me!

Why did I write this here?

Quite a few years ago, I was getting ready to leave a friend's house.  He lived with his folks at the time.  I went out to start the car so it would warm up.  As I started up my car, I heard this horrible shriek, a bunch of thumping around, and then a critter went streaking off into the night.  Turned out, one of his family's cats had crawled up in the engine compartment to stay warm.  What I found under the hood was none too pleasant.  Poor thing survived but they ended up changing his name to 'Stumpy'.

 Last year, had a cat get up into the radiator shroud. Didn't know it was there, and had to go get someone at the Bus stop. It was raining and the roar on the tin roof was loud.

  I started the Jip, and Reina went berserk. There was fur flying oput from under the hood.

  YEP, cat used all 9 lives, and still didn't make it.  Neighbors told everyone I killed their cat  ::) ::) ::) >:( >:( >:(

  All these animal stories remind me of one my Dad told me years ago.  He went up to the pasture to check the cows, and saw some wierd thing.  There was a cow head just sticking out of the ground.  When he went to check, he found the cow had walked into a wash out, and gotten stuck with just her head sticking out of the ditch.  He had quite a time getting the old bag out of that hole.  But she did survive.  Jim
