Eww! Problem With The Cat Car

Ah-HA!  Fooled you, I blocked out the corpse 🙀
Gross!  A poor spider tried to climb into The Cat Car's dashboard, perhaps to find a warm place to hide.  Unfortunately, it got stuck, and now has gone over the Rainbow Bridge.  The corpse is directly in my line of sight, however, and there is no way to remove it unless we take the car apart.  If I scrunch down a bit in the driver's seat, the horizontal bar of the steering wheel hides the body.  Driving at night works too!

I feel badly that I cannot assist this creature's remains, known as Spidey, to a proper burial, but I now have to look at it for the amount of time it takes to dry to dust or wither to nothing.  A blast of air from a computer keyboard cleaner did nothing; the crack between the clear plastic and instrument panel is too tight.  Which begs the question: how did Spidey get in there in the first place?

Guess we'll never know, but it's yucky and I only bring it up because I simply LOVE The Cat Car, as it drives well, is cute and, gets good gas-mileage.  The bonus is that there is no monthly car payment, meaning I have a tad more $$ in my pocket for Chucky, Angel, Patty O'Malley and Sweetie.  The humans do not need much.  Voila!  It's a win-win for everyone...except poor Spidey...and me, who has to look at it.  Ewww!

Well, now Spidey doesn't have to worry about being cold.

Poor spider, I do wonder how he got in there too.

Hmm, that would not be the best view while driving. Especially if it suddenly moved. (Just kidding, it's dead.)

We love our Catmobile too - provided none of us ever have to go it in.
It too holds the remains of those less fortunate: a particular mosquito has been stuck to the windscreen now for 2 years. On the inside.

Love your Cat Car! Our neighbour had one just like it, said it was the best car she ever had. Poor Spidey! That would be hard to look at everyday.

Tamago said...

Oh no, poor spidey! And poor you that you have to drive with body right there!

Well, I guess Spidey had a warm place to spend his final moments. Maybe a few good speed bumps will knock his remains down out of your line of sight.

Poor Spidey. At least he found a warm place.

Mum is scared of spiders but she feels sorry for them too and she'd hate to see it in that state too.
