A barely noticed tragedy on roadway in front of Five Star
'My day is saddened that a dear little kitten's life is ended. I will mourn for it as if it were my own.' - JOYCE COOMER
Click on headline for complete story, with reminder: Please care for your animals
By Joyce Coomer
A tiny black kitten lost its life this morning in front of Five Star on Jamestown Hill. I removed the tiny kitten's body from the roadway; its weight and healthy fur told me that it had been well-cared for. Until this morning.
This kitten wasn't old enough nor large enough to have started rambling away from home on its own which makes me believe it was in someone's vehicle and fell out and was subsequently run over, either by its owner's vehicle or another vehicle. I am heartsick.
Please, please -- if not for the sake of the animals, then for the sake of those who love all animals and mourn when they are harmed -- take time, especially on rainy and cool mornings, to check on the whereabouts of all your cats, your dogs, and the neighbor's animals.
Blow the horn before you start your vehicle's motor. Then check around the vehicle before you move it.
Don't feed animals near a vehicle. Feed them just before you are ready to leave so that they will be at the food instead of around a vehicle.
If you own animals, please care for them and be aware of their habits. Every day, all day.
My day is saddened and that dear kitten's life is ended. I will mourn for it as if it were my own.
Joyce M. Coomer
