CAMPAIGNERS are pressing for a change in the law to require motorists who hit cats to stop, report what has happened, and seek help from a vet reports the BBC.
Drivers in the UK already have to do this for accidents involving “working animals”, including horses, cows, sheep, pigs, goats and dogs.
But the rules do not apply to cats or wild animals.
The issue will be debated in Parliament later after 102,436 people signed an e-petition backing the change.

So you’re telling me if I’m driving to work at 5am and I hit a CAT 🐈⬛ I have to pullover and report it?? Hahahahaha
Comments by Colin and Keith clearly prove they do not have pets thus no idea how a loss of such affects people.
I had a cat. A nice little cat. It played out in the road and now its flat
How could anyone run over a cat and just drive off. They have no idea how devastated the owners would be.
