Cat Killer

To the asshole speeding driver not paying attention to what you were doing: Yesterday (Sunday) you sped down 3rd avenue between Woodland and Commercial Drive and killed my cat. Thanks a lot. You didn't even stop to take responsibility for your stupid preventable mistake. That cat meant the world to me and more so my boyfriend. He has been a therapy cat for us both for a number of years and you carelessly took him away from us. Now our little family is broken and we'll never see our baby again. I hope you read this, whoever you are. You are a careless person. Thanks to our lovely neighbours, the experience was less damaging than it could have been. Note to all drivers: Pay attention and SLOW DOWN on residential streets. You never know what kind of damage you could cause other people. R.I.P. Devo our magical creature of love. We miss you.

Sorry for your loss

But you shouldn't let your cat run around outside. I hope that if you get a different kitty one day, it will live safely inside. Sorry that happened though.

I feel really bad for you... I hope you keep your next cat safe and sound indoors. Cats are small and it's busy in the city with lots of things that can harm them (cars, coyotes etc.). Reality is that drivers make poor choices all the time so it's your job to protect your little furries from them.

Why would you down vote this? It is a sad and hurt person trying to communicate a message to drivers to pay attention to driving and not their phones or whatever else.

I'm so sorry for your loss and I hope things look up for you and your boyfriend going forward. I feel your pain.

To the down voters: You are a bunch of low lives.

Speeding down residential streets is not okay. Not stopping is heartless. Seriously though, take some responsibility for letting your cat roam on to the street. Chances are it'll be too much for a cat to negotiate at some point. Same reason people don't let their little kids roam around on their own.

Animals are ignorant of traffic safety. When free to roam the street they may get run over.

I know I let him outside but there are a lot of cats on my street and I personally think it's mean to keep cats inside. I agree it's a city with traffic and a higher risk of fatality but I grew up in Vancouver with many cats that were let outside and lived very long lives. I only let our kitty outside for a couple hours in the late morning when traffic is low. He barely ever left the yard of my building. He must've gotten startled at something and ran at the wrong time. That doesn't excuse the fuck wad who hit him and didn't stop to at least drag him off the road. Our poor neighbours had to do the dirty work while they sped off hoping nobody saw. They are a scumbag piece of shit. Sorry but I'm angry.

I think some of you missed the point. Slow down! I think kids live a lot longer if they're indoor kids btw.
