    Might be worth building one. If it gets really cold a nice warm bonnet attracts friends!

    Haha I saw that on FB too. A colleague told me the other day he went out to his car after coming home from work and having his tea to check something under the bonnet and found his cat snuggled up behind the engine. It had managed to squeeze through a gap in the undertray seeking out the warmth, problem was it nearly gave him a heart attack when he lifted the bonnet and saw this shadowy figure moving around. Ohh I did laugh, I think we would notice a cow though don't you.

    I think this is a horse, but I don't think it was trying to get warm..... I expect it was noticed though!

    Whilst looking for animals on bonnets I came across this. I don't know what they're smiling at... I suspect it's one of those nervous reactions!

    On the subject of animals my parents lost their beloved cat for 2 weeks, Dad had been working on the engine of his Volvo.
    They were so distraught that the cat had gone. Well 2 weeks later dad on the drive and could hear a faint meow near his car, yes it was the cat, he had got into a well down under the radiator and was hanging out underneath covered in oil and almost dead !!! But he survived despite travelling 25miles round trip every day to Bath where he was working at the time. A happy ending I'm pleased to say. :)
