THE cold snap sweeping through Spain has led police to issue warnings about the potential dangers people can face.
Their latest tweet warns people that cats often seek shelter from the cold inside car wheel arches and engine compartments.
“Have you seen that due to the cold stray cats are sheltering underneath cars? Check before you drive… You’ll save their lives”
