Cat hit on Saint Mary St on Friday afternoon, excellent effort and care by young men passing by

I called the next day to check on the status of the cat and found that it's owner had been found and that the cat had had surgery Friday night, but had worsened on Saturday morning and was to be euthanized.
It was a sad ending for the poor cat and it's family. It did show me though that there is great character and compassion among our local teens and I want to give a shout out to the young men for doing the right thing. It is also a reminder that people drive much too fast through the downtown streets and that we have neighborhoods filled with animals and children. Please slow down!
I made a donation to Tri Valley Animal Rescue which helps work with our local animal shelter to prevent euthanasia and to provide homes for unwanted and stray pets.If you too, would like to make a donation here is the information.
