Default RB purrs for an unknown kitty

I make a 120 mile commute every day between home and
the office. I normally take one of two freeway routes,
depending on which freeways are congested. Today was
an expecially bad day - sig alerts on both of primary
routes. This meant that I had to drive about 1/3 of the
way on freeways, get off on surface streets through the
largely unincorporated areas of San Bernardino and
Riverside counties, then rejoin the freeway after the
congestion.

As I was driving down one of the main drags through
Jurupa, I saw a furry lump in the middle of the road.
I managed to avoid hitting it then found a spot where
I could safely make a U-turn and go back.

When I got there I found a very beautiful, very dead
large orange tabby cat. From the injuries he sustained
I could tell that he died instantly and painlessly. I
would have liked to have been able to bury the poor
unfortunate kitty but I don't carry tools with me and
there were no appropriate places nearby to do so anyway.

I did move the kitties remains out of the street up onto
the shoulder, well off the road, and called the agency
responsible for dealing with animal remains. Most import-
ant, they maintain a list of animals they collect, a
description, and when and where they were collected so
worried animal owners can find out if their furkids have
been taken.

Please join me in purring this poor thing finds his way
to the bridge painlessly, and this his humans may learn
of his fate instead of worrying and never knowing.

I also learned something important today - it's difficult
to drive on a busy freeway with tears in your eyes.

Poor sweetie, purrs that he had a swift trip to the RB. Thank you, Dan, for
giving him some dignity in death and the chance that his hoomins, if any,
might know his fate.

Hugs,

Most certainly. Many purrs for the poor kitty's gentle journey to
the RB. It's so terribly sad.

I left work the other evening and there was a kitten on the side of the
parking lot that had been hit. I just didn't have the heart to touch it.
Apparently, I'm not as strong as you are, Dan. I saw it, my heart sank, and
I had to walk past it. I thought about the poor thing the whole way home.

Purrs for the poor fellow. A similar thing happened to me when a
regular neighborhood tom died in my backyard last summer. I felt so
bad.

Don't feel too bad, kili. It's not easy to do. I don't know that I would
have stopped except that this poor guy was in the middle of the street and
had not been badly mutilated. As hard as it was to go back, it would have
been even worse had I left him there to deal with the traffic that would
be getting very heavy before long.

Now I have to deal with the image of that poor baby in my mind all day.
That's going to be rough. But it would even worse dealing with my own
feelings if I hadn't moved him.
