Birthday: 21 July 1994
Recently one of my cats went missing for a few days and was later found by the bus stop at the end of my road after being hit by a car. Her body was taken and all we have back is her collar, which someone found and brought to a vet.
So I’m begging you; if you hit an animal while you’re driving don’t leave the on the road, take them to the nearest vet - even if you think they're a stray, even if you know the animal is dead.
"But why should I and what will the vet do?"
Any animal that is run over is potentially someone’s pet and most pets (cats, dogs, horses, parrots, guinea pigs, rabbits and more) have a mircochip implanted under their skin which can be used to find the contact details of the pet’s family and inform them of what happened.
Don’t leave a family wondering for days, even weeks, where their pet is. Let them know as soon as possible and give them the opportunity to mourn.
My family never got the chance to bring Minion home, we never got a proper chance to say goodbye to her.
Don’t do that to a family.
