My cat was killed on Weds early evening. The driver didn't stop - a neighbour called me to tell me. I was on my way home and collected his body around 8pm - some kind people had taken him in and put him in a box. To the driver, if you are reading this - if you do this again have the courtesy to stop and ring the number on the tag. Perhaps you didn't realise - but the roads here are quiet and if you'd been driving at low speed and paying attention I doubt this would have happened. It's caused us much heartbreak. He was not even 2 years old.
Sorry to hear about this - we lost our cat same way last summer.
I just wanted to balance above comments because not everyone who runs over a cat is reckless, speeding or aware of the mishap / choosing to ignore it. The fact a cat is called or injured doesnít automatically mean the driver was reckless.
I saw a fox run over recently on CP Rd, the car was doing maybe 10mph and probably had their stereo on - which will be why they probably didnít hear the poor creature howling like a banshee after itís pelvis got crushed.
Why would anyone write a response like that, with such a sudden, distressing detail as that, on a thread like this?? Written by someone who is obviously really upset about the loss of their cat? Why would you do that??

Oh that's terrible news. I am very sorry Cinders. He was a sweet little cat, very friendly and he used to come and say hello to my old cat Luke. It's funny, I thought I saw him recently at my kitchen window but it must have been his ghost looking for Luke. He had this habit of jumping onto my wheely bin and "talking" through the window to Luke. I'm sure Luke will miss him. RIP Pixie.
