Leftover Posted December 24, 2014 Report Share Posted December 24, 2014 This is not an easy post to write and it doesn't have a happy ending, so be forewarned. I went out this morning to get some treats for the dogs for their Christmas presents and was sitting at a stoplight. Across the intersection on the other side of the street, I saw what I first thought was a bird taking off. But it wasn't. It was a cat that had been hit by a car. His legs were flailing but he wasn't getting up. A number of cars drove past him without stopping so when the li...ght changed, I got myself turned around and came back because I couldn't just leave him there. Unfortunately, by the time I got to him, he was no longer moving and I think he was dead. I picked him up in a towel and took him to the vet at Alta Vista, which was a few blocks away. I told them what had happened and could they look after him and asked if there was anything I could do. To their credit, they told me no, and that they would take care of things. I can't even imagine the pain that poor cat was in, laying there in the street all alone. And now, it's Christmas Eve and some family somewhere is going to be looking for their kitty, and he won't be coming home. I debated whether or not to write about this but decided if it encouraged even one person to be more watchful of their pets, it would be worth it. Please make sure your pups and kitties are safe- they are depending on you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
