Upon reading the title I thought:

a. OP is a 4chan troll
b. OP has some sort of dead house pet lying on his components

The disappointment is large

Check this out on Wikipedia:

Just a fun fact for the day for those who didn't know.
I was totally going to inb4 that stupid urban legend attributing the usage of the term 'bug' to a dead moth, but I wasn't quick enough.

The Term

So, where did the term "bug" come from?

Well, the entry ("First actual case of bug being found.") shows that the term was already in use before the moth was discovered. Grace Hopper also reported that the term "bug" was used to describe problems in radar electronics during WWII.

The term was use during Thomas Edison's life to mean an industrial defect. And in Hawkin's New Catechism of Electricity, an 1896 electrical handbook from Theo. Audel & Co.) included the entry:
Quote:
The term "bug" is used to a limited extent to designate any fault or trouble in the connections or working of electric apparatus.
tl;dr: Grace Hopper did not come up with 'bug'. Grace just thought it was humorous that they found an actual bug, hence her taping the moth to her report...

Thread Starter 
1. I dont own cats so a dead cat in my PC is not a concern.
2. I can "just close the window" or "move PC to a closed room", my house is a jungle/forest, I'm surprised I dont have anything bigger than those bugs crawling into my PC. The PC room is a room with a door an an array of windows, this door is open from 6AM to 11PM.
3. I am waiting for some money to get a new case with air filters.
4. The main purpose of this thread was to know if insect blood will damage my components
