Dear Editor, To the upstanding, upstanding citizen who hit my black cat in the cul-de-sac at 600 Springhaven Court on Labor Day and seriously injured him in the middle of the road. Why?
To the good honest citizen who hit my black cat in the cul-de-sac at 600 Springhaven Court on Labor Day and seriously injured him in the middle of the road. Why?
I don’t understand how someone can just hit someone’s pet and walk away, but my daughter tells me it’s pretty common in Airdrie. She says comments on her Facebook page average four per week. I find this alarming, but not surprising. There have been numerous letters to the editor in the past expressing residents’ dissatisfaction with cats.
You might not like cats, but that’s no reason to hit one, as it seems to me that four a week could be more than accidental. Go on. You know when you’ve hit something.
I’m sure it doesn’t mean anything to you, but it means a lot to me. So not only did you take another family member from me (I lost my partner to cancer in June), but worse, I had to finish what you started. Costs at the pet hospital totaled just under $ 700. The money doesn’t bother me as much as the loss of my pet.
I sincerely hope this doesn’t happen to four other Airdrie families every week. What kind of a world do we live in when it’s okay to run over people’s pets and drive away?
I want to thank my neighbors for all their help in this unexpected ordeal. The five of them went above and beyond. I couldn’t have done it without you guys.
His name was Oscar.
