    Redhen had a great day today.(notice the past tense...HAD..)..
    Visited hubbys parents in Maine.. went on a Light House Lovers cruise in Portland... had Maine lobster and Steamers with hot butter ([​IMG]..)... Went to Lake Sebago and even Old Orchard Beach to see the sights.
    What a great day, right??
    Yeah..until some IDIOT lets their cat outdoors at night and we RUN IT OVER on the way home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]
    Poor little thing comes out of NOWHERE.. and runs right under our tire... no time to stop..nothing.
    God, i still feel sick. The sound and sight of it...
    I HATE that cat owner right now... and the reason that i didnt try to find the house that it lived in is because i WOULD have done this to them had i seen their face...>>> [​IMG]
    Really..i'd be posting this from jail right now had i met that cats owner tonight...

    That is one major disadvantage to cats vs dogs. Dogs can be fenced in.

    Cats go where they want and to heck with what their servants say.

    So sorry your day had to have such a bummer end... but given the owners this might have been the less painful end to the poor thing. If the cat was happy, well fed, etc. then it wouldn't be wandering too far from home would it?

    There is no controlling cats. They do what the heck they want to. Even my indoor cats escaped from time to time and I never even knew it til they stuck their little faces up against the window.

    Wendy, I know the whole experience sucks! You had a sound memory ( the scream) - I had a visual one that will NEVER leave my brain no matter how much brain bleach I pour in there. I hit a chicken in the road - never even SAW the thing. Next thing I knew there were hundred of feathers everywhere. And more too, but I will spare you the details.

    Have you ever owned a cat? There is no telling a cat what to do or where to go. Sorry you had to experience this. [​IMG] [​IMG] I would HATE to run over any animal. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Oh I'm sorry. Boy I know I would be sick. I'm sorry. Let's hope it "went" quick at least.

    It does suck... and HURTS my heart too. To hear an animal scream in pain... and it still be alive and suffering for a few minutes... (the suffering is what i cant take..) It tears my soul out...
    I had a visual too..(while the cat was still alive.. [​IMG] ) maybe if i bleach my eyeballs out it will go away...
    You know how i am...
    It dosent slide off of me too well.. nor hubby either..
