life is deadly

hya everybody.

happy newyears i guess. About 45 minutes ago the bell rang and I opened it. At first I saw nobody but then i recognised the black person standing on the street (I’m a bit blind) and at his feet laid a kitten, the kitten from next door and he/she was bleeding. I flipped and screamed for my brother to call the animal ambulance (dutch site) which in the end didn’t work. So i started calling all animal doctors and they were all closed. Eventually the neighbours from the other side called the ambulance and then the waiting began. I’ve never felt that 15-20 minuted could last a day. And I remember thinking: “Is this going to be the first time i’m seeing somebody die?”. The ambulance came and picked the kitten up and had to wait for the central point to give them a nearby animal doctor to go to ( apparently they’re all closed on friday evenings). They told us that they were having a newyears reception with their other colleages and were actually having coffee when they were beeped. Eventually they left and now I have the lovely job of telling the neighbours. Now on to another point wich really frustrates me.

Said kitten was hit by a car and the car driver kept on driving and didn’t stop. He left the little red kitten to his fate. Luckly somebody had enough human in him to actually try to get somebody to help the kitten. Is it so hard to stop when you see somebody bleeding on the street? Or are we all so occupied with ourselves that we don’t even notice it. I hope to god that when ever you see this happening, or if you’re the cause of it, that you at least have the common sense to get help. If not then you have no human bone left in your body.
