WARNING: Animal Aboard!
That kitty was lucky, in that he only lost an ear. Many animals lose their lives.
1. Walk around your car and really inspect it. I once found two newborn kittens on the top of my tires.
2. Honk your horn a few times before starting the engine.
Folks, it is cold out there and animals are looking for a warm place. Lets not make it their last place.
