My cat Mona was hit by a car pretty much right outside our driveway on Saturday night. We discovered her body early on Sunday morning when I was taking my partner to work. We both saw her at the same time, cried "no!" and jumped out the car and ran over to her. There was this old man stopped right by her, looking at her with the saddest look on his face. My husband and I were just crying, I was hysterical. The man offered to put her in a box for us, but we declined. He said I'm so sorry, he didn't know what to do, he walked on. She had been hit in the middle of the road, There was a pool of blood, blood drag marks and then they had put her in the gutter. I'm glad they moved her off the road so she didn't get run over by any other cars. She was wearing a tag with our number on it, they could have called and quickly driven off, they didn't have to face us. I can't stop crying at the fact my baby's body was out on the road all night and we found her stiff and cold in the morning. She had been struck on the head. I can't get her body out of my mind. One side of her head was just soaked in blood and she'd been hit so hard her eyeball was dangling out of it's socket and I just can't get it out of my head! She was my baby. We had her from when she was 7 1/2 weeks old. We doted on her, she ate the most expensive food we gave her the best of everything because we wanted her to live a long and healthy life. I always thought about her getting old and slowing down, but I knew it was so many years away yet. I just can't believe that this has happened. It's been 48 hours since we found her and I just can't stop crying. I see her everywhere, and I don't know how I'm supposed to go on without her. Life is going on all around me and I feel like I'm in a bit of a daze. My life has just come to a screeching halt and everyone's walking around like normal. She was my everything, she helped me through so much and she was so loyal to us. I've never seen such a downright funny and energetic cat. She had more energy than a kitten and made me laugh every day. She was beautiful, we used to always get comments on her and she was tiny, only about 3.3kgs. No one around me gets that she was more to me than 'just a cat' except my husband but he's at work 10 hours a day so I'm on my own. I have my dog but I think she's grieving to as she's really quiet. I'm just so, so sad. I've never felt empty like this.
