Woman planning to move home after Crossways cat deaths
A WOMAN left devastated by the death of her cat says she is planning to move after the third hit and run in three years.
Jackie White-Spiller, who lives in Woodbury Drove in Crossways, lost her beloved cat Jerry after he was hit by a car in nearby Yalbury Lane.
Neighbours took him to the vets and Jackie was contacted after checking Jerry’s microchip.
Owner Jackie was able to say goodbye to her three-and-a-half-year-old pet but nothing could be done to save him.
She added: “The neighbour had just seen him lying in the road. It didn’t look like whoever had hit him had stopped.”
For Jackie the traumatic event was made worse by the fact that another of her cats, called Bella, had also been left for dead after a hit and run three years ago but had managed to drag herself in to the house.
That came around the same time as one of her neighbours also had their cat hit by a car that failed to stop.
Jackie, who also had a cat injured by a motorbike last year, said: “I know people say it’s just a cat but it’s a life at the end of the day. It’s also just that it’s happened so regularly for me and my neighbour.”
Jackie appealed to anyone who might have seen the incident on Wednesday, August 21 between around 4.30pm or 5.30pm or the driver of the vehicle themselves to have a ‘conscience’ and let her know what happened.
She said the latest distressing incident concerning her pets could just prove to be the last straw.
Jackie said: “I want to move because of it all, it’s the third year in a row.”
