I'm afraid someone is missing their beloved cat today. Was driving home from Tesco in Bidston after a bit of midnight shopping and just before the corner of Gautby Road I saw a cat lying in the middle of the road twitching. Whoever had run it over hadn't even bothered to stop. I picked him up to save him from further damage from cars. His jaw looked all dislocated but sadly he died in my arms. He had a collar on but no tag, so not knowing what else to do I left his body on the pavement frown

I know cats do dart across the road sometimes but the arsehole hadn't even bothered to stop and move him away from the traffic. If whoever's moggy it was is reading this am so sorry but at least he died in the arms of a true cat lover.

Thanks maxine. Am still feeling upset and hugging my three cats closer this morning. I wonder if he hadn't died who should I have called on the mobile, can't imagine any vets would've been awake or willing to help for free? I know there's a PDSA emergency clinic but that's over in Huyton.

The rspca hun, they've got a 24 hr hotline 0300 1234 999. It may be worth reporting it to them anyway just incase someone has been ringing them asking about a lost cat fitting the same description, wallasey branch number: 638 6318.

Don't waste your time trying to get the R.S.P.C.A.to help,if my experience of them is typical,they just wouldn't be interested,they're not worth a carrot.Too busy conning little old ladies into leaving them all their money.Their bank balance comes first,with animals in need a very poor second.Rant over!

Well done to you for rescuing it from anymore pain.

I think most vets operate an emergency call out service, you ring the number and it usually transfers you to the vet on duty!!
I know the one in Moreton Cross, and they the one by the arno do as well.

Hope this helps any future animal emergencies.

Last year I found a cat on Leasowe Rd who had been hit by a car. He was alive but obviously in pain so I took him home and called the RSPCA as my own vets had closed for the day. They gave me the details of an emergency vets which does RSPCA work and a reference number. I took the poor boy to Birch Vets in Oxton as instructed by the RSPCA and they treated him. I presume they would bill the RSPCA with the reference number they gave. Luckily although the cat did not have a collar, he was chipped and they traced the owners who lived in the next road. Unfortunately the cat died at the ets the next day but at least his owners could be with him and knew what happened to him.
The point of this story is that in this instance the RSPCA and Birch Vets were very helpful and their priority was the cat's welfare, not who was going to pay the bill.
