    Default RIP Poor little tabby cat

    On my way to work this morning a car 2 in front of me hit a cat. It was on a dual carriage way and the poor little thing was lying in the road.

    I pulled over as I just had to check if the poor little thing was still alive and I hate to see animals just left like that. When I picked him/her up I knew it was too late. The force had done so much damage to his/her face

    The little cat had a collar but no contact details. I laid him/her in the grass away from the road.

    It absolutely devastated me and I sobbed all the way to work. I have called a local vet to let them know for their notice board.

    I am going to try to find the owner on my way home.

    Rest in peace little one xxxxxxx

    Thank you.

    It really has disturbed me - particularly its injuries! I kept thinking about the owner waiting for the cat to come home

    It seems to me that drivers do not care much at all when they hit a cat. I don't think that you are obliged to report it or anything but I just could never hit an animal and drive on!!!

    The lady at the vet nearby says that she is going to see if she can find the cat.

    I felt awful having to leave it there. I couldn't think straight either as I was upset and shocked by the injuries

    I have been off work for 10 weeks after breaking my ankle and this was my first morning back and I was already stressed about being late etc.

    I called the vets and the lady I had spoken to found the little cat and it turned out that he was micro-chipped and also registered with them.

    At least the owners will know now

    It is so sad when they are taken so suddenly and in such a way, my thoughts are with the poor owners who must be devastated to hear such news but at least they know. RIP little one.
