      Was driving to my mums this morning and as appraoching saw a black cat literally doing back flips as high as about 5 foot and landing all over the place. Jumper out of the car to grab the car and a woman shouted that it had just been hit. It dropped to the floor and all of its face was crushed, jaw hanging off and one of its eyes was popped out of its head. I was a wreck when i saw it and the lady who had hit it ran down the road hysterical so i made sure she stayed far away so she couldnt see the damage and blood everywhere. the cat had stopped crying or moving and only had the slightest of breaths and i mean slight.


      would you have rushed it to the vets judging on the damage and the fact it had pretty much stopped breathing?

      I was panicking and didnt know what to do so waited with the woman while she rang the local vets who i assume would come pick it up and check for micro chip to call the owners?

      I had to leave as was running late for work but feel really bad now i didnt grab it in my coat and take to the vets a few miles away. I dont think it could have survived such damage though, its back end was crumpled too.

      Ive got two cats of my own and think thats what made me so upset to see it. Wierd as seeing humans hurt doesnt have this effect on me.

      what would you have done?

      personally mate if the injuries were that bad i'd have chapped it there and then to end its suffering-local vets will do nowt and advise to call police.

      I think I'd take it to the vet mate. I have a cat of mine who I love and if anything did ever happen to him I would like the final say of his health to be from a vet.

      I had a cat previously that had a blood clot or heart attack whilst at the cattery and never got a chance to see a vet as he died pretty instantly but any glimmer of hope id lay in a vets hand.

      Just started letting our new cat out and I really hope he doesn't go any further then the 3-4 gardens in the back as we live close to a road.

      Really? i thought to call police but then thought that was wasting their time. I did think to drive over it mate but couldnt have done it! I think by the time i had gone it was done anyway, certainly brain dead i would imagine. Poor thing :(

      I did give it thought mate but these breaths it took were so few and far between and literally its stomach moved mm's. I think it was gone by the time i went for sure. What a horrific sight it was though.

      I hate to see animals hurt as well. I have two cats myself and I remember how upset I was back when I was 10 and I saw a cat get hit by a car and the poor thing lay on the side of the road gasping and bleeding...

      I think we react differently to seeing animals get hurt than with humans because we view them as surrogate children/dependants and believe they can't defend themselves as well as humans.

      You see it all the time in films. I can't bare to see an animal hurt in a film, I will literally look away, but seeing someone tortured and torn limb from limb like in Saw or Hostel doesn't even come close to the hatred I feel towards someone hurting an animal. It's empathy for the weak and I think it's a good thing.

      You obviously know the extents of its injuries,i can imagine it being a horrific site and feel sorry for both parties involved,owner and driver. Its things like this which make me really apprehensive of letting my cat out but he loves it.

      A few year ago we had a few week in which cats were being shot with an airgun by kids and unfortunately i witnessed one of them which made me feel sick to be honest. I could have killed the little ****s that are that horrible.
