Roadkill

I hit a racoon with my brother's car last night. It was an accident, but I feel terrible about it. Why, why, couldn't it have been a cat?

I always swerve to avoid running over already dead possums. I just feel like they're bodies are filled with black stinky tar-like oil, that will eat through the rubber of my tires and/or cause me to skid uncontrolably to my death. Much to the delight of the waiting family of the deceased.


Anyway.....what's the deal with you and cats?

I'm pretty sure it was dead, but I didn't stop to check because it was late and dark and I didn't have a shovel or anything to put it out of it's misery if it wasn't.

I knew a guy who ran over a rabbit and killed it, but then backed over it again for fun, and then went back and forth just to make it longer. Actually, I did that too, but with a thanksgiving turkey, which somehow seems different.

I don't know why I hate cats so much (I don't actually want to kill one). They scared the crap out of me when I was a little kid. When I was 5 I had a babysitter who had a cat named Psycho Kitty, which in reality was probably quite tame, but in my memory was a killing machine with razor-sharp claws. I once watched it attack and destroy a large crow.

I also had a lot of pet rabbits, so cats were a natural enemy. That's probably part of it.
