Dear person who has a problem with cats that play in the road, Keep your cats out of the road. This would solve this problem. Regardless of how fast a car travels the weight of a car verses the body mass of a cat, the car wins every time. I feel bad as a cat owner for your loss. You should get an electric fence for your next cat with a shock collar or something. Why was the Mayor called at home? Is he contacted every time a person is pulled over for speeding? What made this occasion special? This town is crazy. We have Meth labs sprouting up, Illegal aliens invading town and cooking food for us, and Retirement homes in the tourist district of town. And people have the Audacity to contact the Mayor when their cat is hit by a car. The West Columbian Strikes Again.
