LETTER: Beloved pet

It is now a year since my cat was killed opposite Lyndhurst Infant School.

She was 18 years old and originally my mum’s cat.

The driver who ran her down could have avoided her, according to two ladies in the car behind – members of the Guide Dogs for the Blind who very kindly took her to Northbrook Surgery, and they also put a note through my door.

My heartfelt thanks to them.

On arrival at the vets next day I was told that my cat had to be euthanased due to a smashed pelvis.

I gave a donation to Guide Dogs, and some chocs and biscuits to the surgery, then I had to arrange a cremation at Raystede, and her ashes are now under my mum’s favourite rose bush.

I hope that callous driver never has to go through the loss of a beloved pet, like I did.
