    on the way home from college today I saw a fluffy white cat dead on the medien between two busy(ish) roads. There's no stopping on the road we were on so my mum couldn't pull over for us to collect it and take it to a vet to scan for a chip :frown:

    I have phoned both the vets in town and described it/where it is... one vet is going to see if their animal ambulance can collect it if they are going out that way on a run... what else can I do? I don't really have enough details to post an ad in the paper or anything.

    The cat looks fairly 'intact' so I am guessing massive internal trauma as it managed to get away from the road, posture suggests it was crawling :frown::( but it's pure white and no blood obvious.

    Just in case anyone knows anyone from Scunthorpe on here... it's on Scotter Rd near Westcommon Lane/ASDA

    Poor baby, I hope it was too shocky to feel much pain :(

    i had a similar experience a few months ago, like you i rang the local vets and i also rang the rspca and cats protection. if you can give your local rescues a ring it might help, i know there`s nothing that can be done for the poor baby now but if an owner is looking for it they`re bound to ring one of them and at least it`ll give them peace of mind if nothing else.

    have left a message with Cats Protection, hopefully they will find the owner.

    What a distressing sight for you! Poor little kitty.

    In future you might want to get advice from the Highways Agency who patrol motorways clearing up 'debris' (sorry to use that word but it covers much more than dead animals). Although this road isn't a motorway, the HA will know which department of the correct Council that will be able to assist you. Their phone number is 08457 50 40 30.
