Driving home today I noticed something on the road. I always try to not in case its a dead animal since I dont enjoy seeing it. What was that on the road? Probably a shirt. Large leaf. Something. But sometimes its hard to not look and this time it was a dead cat. Absolutely hate seeing that sort of thing. It was about 4:30am and from the looks of it not many cars had passed yet. And in a few hours everyone would be rushing to work. That cat would basically be flat by the end of the day and unrecognizable.
I turned my car around and drove back. I decided if it was my cat and I saw it squashed I'd just shut down. Or just as worse, seeing a dead cat and not knowing if it was mine since I wouldnt be able to tell too well. I had a comic in the car and ripped the front/back cover off to pick it up. Thankfully there were no cars around so I didnt have to rush. The cat was probably around 9-11 by my rough guess. It was also not stiff. The little blood on the road from its mouth was still wet so it probably died maybe half hour ago at most. It was very recent. I carried it and placed it on the footpath where it should stay fine until the owners can find it. Hopefully they do and no one decides to put it in a trash bin or something. Its the same road that school kids walk down so I dont know. No that I think about it maybe I should of put it on the little narrow island between the roads. Oh well, not much I can do now. I can just cross my fingers and hope they find it. Best I can do.
