Accidents happen, so if your cat darts out in the road and gets hit i don't know that you can blame a driver. Sure, some people are pricks who hit animals when they could have slowed down. I'd kick the fuck out of someone if I saw them do that to any animal, mine or otherwise. But the same holds true for kids. If your kid comes out of nowhere into the street on his bike and gets hit, don't blame the driver. Shit, I expect an 8 yr old to have at least half the sense of a cat and they should know better than to play in the road...dogs and cats don't.
