Hit-and-run

This morning as I stepped out into the sunshine, the first thing I noticed was a cat lying on the sidewalk. She lay there so still, I quickly realised that she was dead. I called Animal Rescue, and found out that they already received a call and were on their way. Still, I couldn’t just leave her like that. I mean – apart from the fact that she deserves the same respect as human beings – she might be loved by someone. Can you imagine finding your furry friend abandoned in the street like that? I’ve held enough blood-covered cats in my arms to know that nobody should have to go through that. So I went back upstairs to get a cardboard box and a blanket to cover her up. Waiting for Animal Rescue to pick her up, I wished there was something more I could do.
