ON Tuesday, February 19, my daughter’s pet cat was killed by an inconsiderate motorist, who probably wasn’t even paying attention to the road.

It happened sometime between 6pm and 8pm on Bridge Lane in Appleton. The incident has left my daughter very distraught and she will not go to school or even eat.

The motorist didn’t even have the decency to stop. The only reason we found out was because the car following them stopped and told us.

So if you are reading this and think you are the person responsible please come forward and apologise. You have taken away one of my daughter’s best friends and displayed no remorse by just driving away. You may think ‘it’s only a cat’ but to a little girl this was more. It was her best friend that had been there through everything.

As a side note, I think more needs to be done about the situation on Bridge Lane. At the far end there are speed bumps and everything is fine. However near the care home there are so many cars parked on the side of the road that drivers have to swerve in and out. This causes chaos when a bus attempts to get through.

The last section of the lane is a fairly steep decline which many people speed down likely reaching 50mph to 60 mph before getting to the bottom which is a 30mph zone. I urgently call for councillors to do something about this before something worse happens. On Tuesday another beloved pet was killed, tomorrow it may be one of your loved ones.
