Oh kitties, I have some very sad news to report. Mommy made sure to write River's entry first today because he has happy news, I am taking on the burden of reporting some very sad news.
Today mommy was driving in early in the morning to give her students their final exam. She was approaching the campus when she saw a little black kitty dart out from behind a parked car. A silver car driving past him hit him and kept going. Mommy slammed on the breaks and jumped out of the car. How could you keep driving? It wasn't necessarily this driver's fault. Sometimes bad things happen by accident. Sometimes people hit people by accident, let alone little kitties, but why wouldn't you stop? Mommy ran over to the little kitty. Kitty was not in good shape. This poor beautiful little black kitty was gone within seconds. The driver never stopped their car and the driver's behind mommy got all angry at her for blocking traffic. Mommy had tears in her eyes. She took kitty into the car and drove into a parking lot to stop. Kitty was hit right in front of a bunch of apartments and he looked like he might have had a family somewhere. Someone hit beautiful kitty and took him away from his family and didn't even stop their car. They were going to leave his little kitty shell on the pavement behind a parked car. What if kitty had been alive still and could have been saved? Mommy wrapped kitty in a towel she had in the trunk of the car and took a picture of kitty with her phone. She went to the apartment manager's office on the grounds and asked if they had anyone with a kitty like him. They didn't think so but they said they'd take kitty. Mommy was very reluctant to let kitty go, she wanted to make sure that if he had a family they knew what happened to him and didn't have to spend days searching for him never to find him, or worse yet, find his little body dumped in a trash can. The girl working the desk seemed genuinely concerned with kitty though and promised to bury him over by the river if he didn't have a home. Mommy relented and handed over kitty's little body. Poor kitty. She gave a description of the car but since she only got a few numbers on the plate and the vague model she doubts anything will ever happen. Hitting kitties with cards isn't even a crime in lots of places, even if you drive away like that.
Poor little kitty. Mommy wanted to take him to the vets to see if he had a microchip but she had to go give the exams. She hopes the girl behind the desk will do that. Mommy begged her to. She said if she couldn't do it, mommy would find the time to. She promised to do it. I hope she does it. I hope if kitty has a family they find out what happened to him. It may hurt, but it would be better than never knowing. The girl at the desk had a picture of her boyfriend and their puppy on her desk. Hopefully she knows what it feels like to love an animal and will do the right thing for kitty.
Can you all please take a moment to purr for kitty? He died this morning around 8am on the road by the university in Sacramento. Please purr for him kitty. Purr that he is at peace and that his family will know what happened to him. If he doesn't have a family, purr that he is at peace now at the rainbow bridge. All you bridge kitties, please go find him. He was a beautiful little black kitty. Find this kitty and tell him mommy is sorry she couldn't save him. Take care of him bridge kitties. Take care of the little kitty who was killed by a thoughtless human early this morning by the university. Help him up to the bridge and play with him. If he has no family, tell him to find Dinah and Eva, they'll watch over him until one day mommy can help him cross the bridge himself. Poor little kitty.

We did a big purr to our angel furblings and they are already welcoming little 'himkitty' to the land of endless meadows and soft places to rest, as well as plenty of yummy nom-noms.

Oh, my heart goes out to that little kitty! Very sad that the person who hit kitty didn't even stop. Kitty will be pain free at the Bridge now and running with new friends there. Thanks to your mom for being a caring loving person on kitty's behalf. Very nice you are a diary pick today also.
Oh my! Poor sweet baby. We sure will purr and pray for him. Thank your mommy for helping him.
We bow our heads in purrs for this little soul..
Your Mama did a wonderful thing today.
Our purrs to her.
That poor sweet baby how cruel for that person to not stop.So glad your Mom was the last one to be with it. Hurray for your Mom's kind heart. God Bless your Mom and The little kitty.
Oh no moma is crying too. I am so furry glad your mom could be there so atleast a caring human was with the sweet baby as he/she had to leave it's little shell behind. I will be sure to help find this little one and make it welcome here. We are purring. It is so wrong for humans to be so careless and then not even care when an accident happens.
Your LURVS fur this little lost furbaby made his journey to the bridge less scary, lonely and frightening...

So sorry to hear this sad news about little black kitty. Your mommy is just so pawsome to care about all the creatures and that they deserve respect too! At least your mommy was there to comfort him when he crossed to the Bridge! He was not alone and felt the love of a beautiful person. What a wonderful thing your mommy did! You should be very proud!
Hugs and purrs,
Simon & Reuben(an angel)
We are Zach and Zoe's Rainbow family. Zach and Zoe just purred for the sweet little kitty and cried to us to search the little kitty out. Joe Black was hit by a car and left beside the road too. So, he will tuck the little one under his wing.
God bless your Mommy.
We are purring for the little kitty, that is so sad...Mom would have done the same thing and she would be crying too...
We know all of the Catster angel kitties welcomed this little kitty to the RB bridge and open angel wings...
What a heartbreaking story! That was so nice of your Mommy to stop and see if poor little kitty could be saved. We hope he is at peace at the Bridge and that his family at least knows what happened to him.
sad purrs, Natasha
Purring for the little kitty and thank you to your mom for caring for the little kitty.
How sad. We are all purring for this little black kitty. At least he knew love and comfort in his final moments; your Mom is really kind and wonderful. Purrs and hugs, Skylar and family
Sending panther purrs to the kitty.
We are purring for poor little kitty. God bless your mommy for her kind & loving heart.
Hugs to you & your mommy,
This is so sad. I am sending purrs. A long time ago, my kitty sister Elvira was hit by a car. She was sleeping in our own driveway and someone pulled up to write something down and hit her. We found her in the garage - she was gone. This guy didn't tell us he'd hit our cat, we only found out because he was a real estate agent and we were trying to sell the house and he said something about it later when my mom asked. My mom had seen her run off and thought she was just scared from the noise, we had no idea she'd been hit. We don't know if anything could've been done for her if we'd immediately known, but maybe. So the fact that someone could hit a kitty and not stop really makes me mad and is very purrsonal for us. Sending this kitty lots of purrs.
Sending purrs to this little soul. Purrs to your Mom for taking the time to make the kitty's last moments filled with love and care.
My mom's eyes are leaking at the thought of this poor little angel. We purray the girl did right by the kitten and God bless your mom for caring so much.
