We live in an area that is rural in some respect, plus we have to hit a highway every time we come home. Driving down the road I always see dead dogs, cats, squirrels and other animals. It breaks my heart, and often I tell God I'm sorry his sweet little creatures end up this way. I wonder if my husband thinks I'm nuts when he hears me saying over and over, "I'm sorry God."
When I spot animals running the highway I always say a prayer too. We've caught plenty of animals in our neighborhood and usually returned them to their owners or found a home for them. But sometimes stopping on the highway isn't an option, so I shoot up a quick prayer.
One Sunday on the way to Mass there was another cat in the road. Once again, I was sad to see this cat "sleeping" as one friend calls it. But on the way back the cat was no longer there. I guess it was just knocked out when I first saw it. Anyway, on the side of the road was a vehicle with a carrier in it. The injured kitty was in some brush, and a lady was there to catch it. That's when it hit me~I may be crazy, but I'm not the only one! And guess what, I think I'm in some pretty good company.
Please spay and neuter your pets.
