So, I was driving home from our county fair just now and I think I killed someone's cat.

I had just dropped off my brother at our Dad's house and was on my way home (in thick fog, mind you) when out of the corner of my eye I saw two eyes reflecting at me through the bushes.

I slowed down but the thing darted out in front of me.

THUD.

I pulled over, engaged my hazard lights and conducted a search. I found nothing. No blood, no physical evidence whatsoever that I could see; the body was no where to be found. I guess it was still alive enough to run away but it probably died, seeing as how my bumper is cracked a little.

I don't think my tire actually ran over it though, so it may have a chance. I was only traveling 35mph when I saw the thing and I slowed down to probably around 10-15mph before I hit it. It was either an opossum or a gray cat. I walked up and down the road a few times in the general area and none of the houses had lights on and I couldn't find the animal.

Anyone else had any experiences with vehicles vs. animals? I feel bad.

They're pretty common (and ugly.)

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I hit a rabbit once. I was getting off the highway, and something jumped out into the road. I was in the process of slowing down, but still going pretty fast.

I felt bad. :/

EDIT:
Opposums don't exist.

I hit a cat with my car once. It took me like twenty minutes though because he wouldn't stop changing lanes.

What? Hell no. That's sick.


I hate the thought of killing anything with a vehicle, especially a natural animal. We're the ones invading their space with our cars.

this one time, we were on this scavenger hunt at my university, and we needed to find a heart. so we found some roadkill and took it to one of the engineering buildings and cut out its heart and put it in a jar...

damn yankees and their opposums

IT'S A POSSUM DAMNIT!


oh, and I hit a cat once. it was broad daylight but I was going like 60 mph, I just barely saw it out of the corner of my eye before it hit, I looked in my rear view mirror and saw it spinning across the highway like it was on ice… I laughed. not so much because I'm a heartless bastard, because there was absolutely nothing I could've done about it and… okay, I'm just a heartless bastard.


and another time on the way home from playing GOW2 all night at my drummer's house I hit a rabbit.

edit: oh yea, I hit a deer once, well it was more like a deer hit me. it hit the side of the car right in front of my left front wheel. it kinda pushed the panel back so that my door wouldn't open, but me and my dad stuck something between the door and the panel and pryed it back. can't even tell.

GAH. I can't take this anymore.

A possum is different from an Opossum. Two different animals. One resides in the Western Hemisphere, the other in the Eastern Hemisphere. They're both ugly, and both marsupials but they are two DIFFERENT animals.


Depending on where you live, TS, you killed an opossum/ a possum.
