I was crossing the road at the lights when I noticed a car pulled up at the side of the road, the traffic was building up. I witnessed the driver carry a cat and place it on the pavement. The cat was white and ginger and wasn’t moving. The driver then drove off. I feel really bad. I wanted to go help the cat but my support worker said you can’t help them when they’ve been run over and I continued walking feeling really guilty. I could of done something? I still feel really guilty. I hate seeing harm to animals. My support worker went into town with another service users about a hour later and he said the cat had gone. I feel terrible.

Really sad to hear about this. Please don't feel guilty as there isn't much else you could of done.
I remember when I was in India with family. And we were in this small van. The van went over a dog and the dog was yelping in pain. At the time i wasn't into animals but now when I think back on that incident, it makes me sad because i hope that dog was ok or didn't suffer.
Like you, i hate seeing animals suffer.

It isn't your fault the car driver should have taken the cat to a vet.
So sorry you witnessed this, the poor cat.
Take care

I'm so sorry about this. I also hate seeing animals suffer. It's awful.
Just know that it's not your fault. It will take some time, but you will heal from this.
It's going to be okay. x
