The fear of being hit by a car is one of my main reasons why my boys are indoor cats.

I just witnessed my neighbour's cat get hit by white van. The van driver didn't even bother to stop.
I ran outside just in time to see her drag herself onto the pavement and collapse dead. It was so upsetting to see.
She was a lovely friendly little black & white cat. I was quite fond of her. She would always play with her son in my garden, and she would always be there watching me when I was out working on my car or bike.

Anyway, I carried her over to her house and informed the woman. She was so heartless. She said just leave "it" there and I'll get it later. She didn't seem the slightest bit concerned. I was watching to see how long she leave her lying outside. Fifteen minutes later, she came out and wrapped her in an old towel and put her in the bin.
This was equally as upsetting as seeing her get killed.
She has two other cats and two dogs. I'm now wondering just how they're treated in her house. She's lived there about a year, and I've never spoken to her before. I now know for certain, I'll never be friends with the heartless bitch.


I had a cat for near 10 years that was intentionally run over by idiotic teens last year. He was just a ginger moggy but he meant the world to me. I was heartbroken and still am to a degree. Back when I was 14 my sister's boyfriend ran over a cat. He saw it, didn't stop and just continued - even laughing awkwardly a little. I never really spoke to him again after that and made it as awkward as possible for him when he came to our house so he would no longer come. It's not just an animal, the cat is someone's pet.

When my boyfriend got me Lily, I was actually willing to let her go outside, but realised quite quickly I would have been very stupid to allow such a thing. I am getting her a harness and walking her when I have company (won't do it alone, in case of dogs) and I don't think I will ever be comfortable with letting her go out alone. It's sad that the van did not even stop. It's so disrespectful and cruel to someone's pet but it sounds like the owner could not care less if she wanted to. People like that should not have pets, pets need as much love as small children and sometime's even more attention.

I hope her other animals are treated well and she was just hiding her hurt. Poor little kitty.

I am so sorry you had to witness something so tragic. I am gobsmacked that the owner of this poor cat didn't seem to care. Why have a cat if that's how you feel? It's beyond me.

Well done for being brave enough to take her out of the bin and bury her, I'm not sure I would have been!

Bless you, David, for giving that cat a wonderful final resting place. This is now why I do not let my cat go outside. I was trying to befriend a skittish gorgeous long-haired orange and white kitty cat. Making great progress and then I found the cat dead on the side of the main road. My heart stopped! I was so sad. It didn't deserve that. Unfortunately, the cat was after a curve in the road, so I'm sure the driver never saw the cat in time to stop. I'm still heartbroken over it.
