Letter about cats killed


Fri, Nov 9th, 2012
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

To the heartless drivers: On the morning of Oct. 31 between the hour of 6:15-6:30 a.m. on Hwy County 44, between the Lime Springs turn and the Cherry Grove turn, my family lost two cats within five minutes of each other.

My husband and I were having coffee on our porch. I had just let out Mama Cat (Muffins) to go to the bathroom, and her six-month-old daughter Princess ran out behind her.

About five minutes later as a car was going by right in front of our house, we heard a terrible noise. I went out to see what had happened. I found Princess lying on the edge of the road.

Mind you there were no brake lights.

As I was picking her up, crying, Muffins comes out to see what’s going on. I was standing holding her dead six-month-old Princess. As I watched in horror, our Mama Cat (Muffins), was run over.

Again, no brake lights, no slowing down, no moving over to avoid us.

So what was the driver doing not to see us?

If I were over a few more inches I also would have been lying on the road.

At the time, Muffins left behind seven five-month-old babies.

So I guess I should be thankful I wasn’t run down also. To leave my children without their mom.

Muffins and Princess were buried together. As my daughter with Down Syndrome says, “They’re with Jesus!”

To the drivers: SHAME ON YOU!

If you are interested in giving a kitten a home, call Diane at 507-937-3418. They are litter box trained and would have to be an indoor cat.
