Less then a block from my house I just saw a cat dead in the road. It had been hit. I didn't see it get struck, but it must have only just happened. I pulled over to check on the cat to make sure, but it was gone. I'll spare you all the details other then to say it was an all black cat with beautiful fur. It appeared to be well fed and was doubtless someone's pet. I came home and all my three got big hugs. I hate seeing pets hit in the road.
