Cat hit by car - 13 Feb 2009
(not all stories have a happy ending)
Animalkind was called by the local police to a cat hit by car incident.
Upon Animalkind's arrival at the scene, the kitty was trying to hide and dragging itself into a corner. The cat was severely injured: his hind quarters were limp and he was unable to pull himself further away from us.
Slowly we covered him with a sheet-he was frightened and hurt............
Carefully, we put him into a carrier to rush him to the vet.
Unfortunately the X-rays revealed a broken back and shattered pelvis. There was no way this kitty would have recovered from his injuries.
Although we could not save his life, we were able to save him from suffering and pain outside and alone. He was humanely euthanized while under anesthesia and crossed the Rainbow Bridge into a kinder world.
