Saw a cat get hit by a car this morning, and the apparent owners had the strangest reaction.
My family and I were on our way to church this morning. Driving down a two lane road, in a residential part of town, a cat came streaking out from my
side of the road. I was about 3-4 car lengths when it came out. A car coming the other direction hit the cat. I am not sure if there was any way
for the driver to miss the cat, as it happened so fast. I hit the horn, and saw her slow down, look in the mirror, then she just sped up and took
I am not a big fan of cats, and have referred to them jokingly as "furry little speed bumps" in the past. But I know the driver knew she had hit
it, and to just run off like that is wrong.
I stopped the car and got out to check on the cat. No cars coming either way, so no problem there. I went over, and the cat was still twitching a
little. I picked it up and brought it to the grass along side of the curb and laid it down. Nothing I could do, the cat was gone. I went to the
house from where it looked like the cat had come from and knocked on the door. No answer, I tried again and no answer. I had been at the door for
about 2 minutes or so, and was about to go to the next house.
Just then a lady from across the street came running over and said it was her cat. She had a towel, and covered him up. She seemed like she was in a
hurry, maybe a little upset, but did not even want to stick around for me to tell her what happened. I told her I was sorry that it happened, as she
went back across the street. She went to the back yard with the cat and a man on the porch followed her.
Now for the strangest part, and for the life of me I don't understand the reaction. My wife and son both said that the man and a teenage boy were on
the porch the whole time. I did not see them, as I was trying to help the cat. She said the man just sat there, and the boy pulled his hoodie up and
drew the strings closed, all while I was moving the cat and trying to get someone to come to the door of the house I was at.
Not once did either of them call out to me, or come out to help, nothing. I guess at one point, after I had moved the cat and went to the house door
the man got up and went inside. It was then that the woman came out.
It just seems like a bizarre reaction. Obviously it was their cat, but to sit with no reaction, not trying to get my attention, not going out to try
and help. Just so strange.
