Take it to a vet on the 27th to be scanned for a microchip, they won't charge you for it.

Then ring round local vets and rescue centres with a rough description to see if it matches anyone's lost pet.

So sad, someone's cat didn't come home sad

It's pretty cold so it should be alright.

Poor cat, and poor owner if there is one. I hope it wasn't a child's pet, they'll be devastated on xmas sad

Yes - that's a good thing that you've done.

vet chip.description of cat is on vets database and they will contact local shelters.they have been great.
unlike the speeding driver who didn't even stop.

Oh that's a shame furlined. But at least the poor thing will get cremated and a decent end.

I found a poor kitty dead on the pavement outside our house this morning. Clearly had been hit by vehicle.

Knocked on doors and found the owner. Horrible to be the bearer of such sad news on first day of new year. She was distraught.

It's so good that you did it Kepek. Lots wouldn't. And when her grief is less raw she will be forever grateful.
