lol..im mad again.i was driveing,comeing back from a my grandson birthday party.there was a white suv in front of me.an i seen a cat running from down a hill.so i slowed down.knowing that the cat was going to run out in the road.but the stupid suv driver ran over the cat.an the driver had plenty of time to slow down or stop to keep from running over the cat.i think he ran over the cat on purpose.i stopped an pulled over the side of the road to check on the cat.its little legs were still kicking.but it died as i was trying to help it.a man came out of a house an went an got a shovel to pick up the cat,he said he would bury it.so i left crying knowing the cat had died.an i was so mad at the suv driver.i was wondering why people dont slow down when they see an animal going to run out in the street.an why do they run over them for the fun of it.an why do they not stop knowing when they have hit an animal?

I think a lot of people just don't think of an animals life as being that important and get some kind of kick out of killing them. I have hit a cat once, I was turning a corner and it ran out as I swung round and I didn't have time to stop before I hit it. I stopped to see if it was ok and it got up and ran away so there wasn't anything I could do, but hopefully it ran home to be safe.

Agreed... some people just don't seem to think any other life except a human life is important. I get a horrible feeling in the chest when I hear about things like this. Awful lack of respect and compassion for life :(

My Caspar - My sweet Caspar - I will never forget him
Oh that is so sad. and your post made me cry. One of my cats was run over and killed last year, and I still cry every time I think of him. I guess some people are just plain evil, and one day I hope they will suffer for their deeds. My only consolation with my baby Caspar is that I know it wasn't done on purpose - the lady who lives nearby, and saw it happen, said Caspar ran out, and the driver had no chance, - it was dark, and he didn't even know he had hit anything. Thanks for trying to help the little cat though - as a cat lover, I know what it is like to lose an animal, and I was very grateful to the lady who tried to help my Caspar.

Sadly I don't think the driver will care, or he would have taken more care to avoid the poor cat in the first place. Guess he is just a bad peson, and I am a firm believer in Karma, so he will get hs just deserts! Try not to be too upset by what you saw - you did your best.

Yes it sounds like he meant to run over the cat seeing he had time to stop. These kind of people do not have any feeling towards animals and that is the reason they do not stop, or try to swerve the other way to miss the animals, the poor cat, no wonder so many animals are scared of us that do not know us and wonder if we are going to harm them.

It is against the law to slow or swerve to hit an animal in my state. I think its ridiculous. Certain people are evil, and If they did hit that cat on purpose than they aare just that.

The driver probably didn't see the cat until it was too late. I know when I was being taught how to drive through drivers ed I was told to never slam on my brakes if an animal crossed in front of my car because the animal was going to do less damage to my car than someone rear ending me.

I once owned a little Yokshire Terrier and someone did the same thing to him right in front of my house. He had bolted out the door when I opened it. And before I could get hold of him into the street. The car just kept right on going. I think there are some very coldhearted people out there.

How sad and terrible for you to have watched it die. I know there are sick people who run them over intentionally and I hope they get their punishment someway, somehow.

What a sin , thats so terrible . Some people don`t have a heart , they just don`t think about the Owner of the animal at all . I think its just GROSSE , how some that this parson just left it for the Owner to deal with it . It`s bad enough they had just seen a loved one die . I just don`t get it , what`s wrong with these people ?

I am sorry you had to see such an awful thing. Unfortunatly People just do not care anymore and it hurts me to. I always slow down when I see a cat or dog even if there is no sign of them running on the Road you just never know. The thing that I do not understand here in the UK it is law that you stop when you hit a Dog but not when you hit a cat and I don't know why. My Sons Dog got hit by a car and fortunatly she was only bruised but the Driver just carried on and as his Fiancee was more concerned about the poor Dog (which I would have been to) she did not get the Registration Number. People just do not care anymore and it is sad.

Yes it is, but we where just so happy that she was ok. The thing is she managed to get out the back Garden as she is always on the lead normally and of course she saw my Sons Fiancee at the Bustop and went to go to her. So now till my Son manages to fix the Fence she is not allowed in the Garden.

My goodness! I hate when I see animals get hit by cars! It always makes me cry. Sometimes people aren't paying attention when things like this happen. It sucks really bad, yes, but it happens. Doesn't make it any easier. I always think, "that was someone's pet...that was someone's baby." It makes me sad just thinking about it.

That is so messed up. Some people just don't give a d--mn. People need to realize that a life is a life regardless if it's a man or a cat. That really sucks. Lloyd

That is really horrible, but here is a possibility. I don't know how close you were behind the SUV but if you saw this you had to have been somewhat close. Not saying you were tailgating..but yeah. It probably wouldn't have been safe for them to slam on the brakes because they were worried about the person behind them running into them. This is just a thought...but I'm sorry you had to witness that. That sounds really sad!

Man that had to be terrible for you classy! Some people are really insensitive, they don't care about anything but themselves, and don't even are thoughtful enough to slow down a bit and let the cat pass....I understand that you feel frustrated about what happened to that poor cat.

Could it be possible that the SUV driver was distracted- with the radio or cellphone and didn't see the cat?

I find this a sad reality of life, but it makes me so angry. That cat was someone's pet and a cherished family member. It really makes me angry that someone would have so little respect for another's life, regardless of whether it's an animal or a human. You can guarantee that if that cat had been their child, they'd have been screaming for justice. I feel for the people that have lost their cat today at the hands of that idiot out there today. What a terrible thing to happen.
