Dear Editor: Do people realize when they hit and kill an animal that they have taken away something very special? On Sunday night our cat we had for 5 1/2 years was hit by a vehicle and killed. I heard a noise and went outside to find our cat lying in the road dead. No one came to the door to apologize or say anything. I hope they will be able to live with themselves. We don’t have any children and this cat was our world. People need to quit going so fast on Duncan Road. I would like to hit them in the head like they did our cat. I feel it was an accident, but don’t they have any morals? I think there should be a law for animals when someone hits them and runs. They should be punished as if they had hit a human. I have some choice words for them that I can’t write down.
