Default Plastic bag stuck to my cat

I thought I smelled something faintly burning all day, but I thought it was a lot of people using their fireplaces for the first time this season. On my last trip of the night, I saw something under my car.

I don't remember running over any of those large kitchen-sized garbage bags, but apparently I did, and now it'* melted onto my cat. I pulled off a couple good-sized chunks. It was dark, so I couldn't see how much was stuck on.

This isn't a good thing, but it'* not a severely bad thing either, is it?

I doubt anything will come to harm as long as the remains don't catch fire.
Cats run very hot so I'd guess if it hasn't already done so it won't now.

Or even just let the car run for a while and heat itself up. As long as you get most of the bigger pieces off, the small stuff should eventually melt and fall off by itself.

Melt off? Probably not. Burn off? More likely.

Only on GM Forum.

The horrible smell of burning plastic is getting fainter by the day, so we'll see how long it takes before it'* gone.
