    Yesterday, on my way to Midland and back, it seemed like I saw a lot of freshly killed cats. A weather change will often make it worse, for some reason.

    1 brown tabby
    1 brown tabby with white belly and paws (looked like our Ella!)
    1 seal point kitten
    1 orange tabby
    1 white with yellow spots
    1 black, right next to the white/yellow one

    I suspect the Siamese kitten was from the house just a little ways back from the road. The others, who knows? They might have been feral. They might have wandered a little ways from home.

    Poor babies. Nothing in their evolution prepares them for the wild in the U.S., and especially not for a busy highway.

    I also live in Texas, and it's heartbreaking to see it along the rural highways where I live. Especially in the spring, when you know they are momcats. [​IMG]

    I live in a small university town. We also see an increase of roadkill when the students come into town for the fall semester. I hate it every year.

    RIP kitties.

    I saw a nice black and white kitten yesterday also and it made my eyes tear.
    I also saw 3 other dead cats in the last few days.
    There has been way to many that have got hit.

    When my dh rescued Fluffy, I went down that same road the next day and it looked like someone had just gone down the road tossing out kittens. It was awful to see 4 or 5 that looked just like her dead in the road. She was the lucky one I guess.

    That just breaks my heart and the dangers from cars is just one of many reasons none of our cats will ever be outside.

    Poor kitties. I hope they didn't suffer.

    I see a lot of cats laying in the roads here, too. I feel bad that they don't know enough to avoid cars. The sad thing is a lot of them are kittens. Makes me wonder if people are just tossing them out of their cars because they don't want them. [​IMG]

    I'm so glad that I took in Snickers from being a stray so that the same thing doesn't happen to him.
