    This is bugging me. I was driving on the freeway, going 65 mph to Ft. Lauderdale. A cat randomly bolt out in front of me. I hit the cat. It happened in a split second. No I didn't slam on the breaks because it happened so fast. There was nothing I could have done to prevent or stop it.

    All this time I couldn't stop thinking about it. The cat, it's possible owner. How do you get over this butter? I had pets all my life. I never ran an animal over. If I see them and if I had time to stop, I'd slow down and wait for them to cross. I got a sense of remorse for killing it. If you hit an animal. Say like a pet. Cat or Dog. How would you handle it?

    I would cry but try not to blame myself. These things happen.

    I was on the 10 heading east from dtla and I drove past a dead Pitt on the freeway. Kinda tragic.

    I'm just in deep thought because of it. I know it is not my fault. But some kid or elderly woman is without their pet.

    When stuff like that happens I always become introspective or thinking really deep thoughts. Death is weird like that.

    I would be upset but know it's not my fault.. U couldn't stop, what can u do? Yes, that may be someone else's pet & it's devastating to lose one, I just lost one myself.. It wasn't done purposely .. I understand why u feel sad about it though. Dogs & cats are like humans for some ppl , of course not all ppl, only the caring nice ones
  • No I haven't but ..

    1. My brother almost but did not, but instead he hit a stop sign and he had to pay out of pocket because insurances doesn't cover it. And to avoid hitting the cat one morning that's what he did. His car was messed up and every now and then he goes that's the spot when we pass it.

    2. My cat got ran over 2 feet from my house. My brother found her instead, and I was at work. I am a cat inside owner only. But no one brought the cat in because well well they didn't care. My mom told me when I got home. She wrapped it in a box so I could say bye and I dug a grave for in our backyard. The whole family was grieving especially my brother.

    3. I was on my way to work on night. I happened to be driving and the truck in front of me hit something thumped the cat or dog with its back tire or front something like that. He pulled over and I was damn someone just lost a pet porridge thing. i bet the owner of the truck felt just like you too because it happens so fast.

    You should count yourself lucky for not hitting the breaks or swerving at 65 mph.
  • Yeah there are donkeys that block the road over here by me, and I have seen many patients of mine in hospital, broken bones, and damaged cars for driving on a canyon where the donkeys just sit there and can't do anything about it either. If you don't watch it they come out of nowhere and you would be driving 65 and bam in my hospital as my patient.

    If I slammed on the breaks or swerve, there would been some bad consequences. Me getting hurt/killed, getting anyone behind me killed just to avoid the cat. I think in this situation it is ether me or the cat. The force of hitting the cat at 65 mph actually knocked my fender slightly off.
