On Friday morning, I was about to drop my brother off at school, before I got in the car, my cat was sleeping in his bed, I went to him and stroked him to say good morning, me and my brother got in my car, and as I was reversing I felt two bumps, I had a bad feeling it was my cat and as I got out the car to see, it was. I have never felt so bad in my life. My garden boy was outside at the time and I just started screaming in shock and I told him to kill it as I thought it was still alive (I didn't really want to look at him dying), I ran inside crying calling for my mom just wishing the cat was dead and no longer in pain, my brother came inside and told me he had passed away. I feel horrible. I know it was an accident and I would've never done anything like that on purpose, I just feel horrible, it mustve been such a horrible way to die and I can stop thinking about it and the picture in my head of him on floor won't go away. I don't know how to forgive myself.

I’m so sorry. They’re are no words, but it was an accident. I’m sure your cat had a great life. Remember the joy.

I know it's hell right now. I know you can't forgive yourself and that you're driving yourself crazy about what you saw and heard and felt and thought. It is hell what we do to ourselves when things like this happen. All you can keep telling yourself is that it was an accident, that you would never intentionally hurt an animal, that you forgive yourself. That's the most important part. That you forgive yourself for what happened. Release yourself from it. Make a vow to yourself that you will use this as a lesson on how to do things differently in the future. That you will never let something like this happen again. That his life will not be in vain. You have to make it mean something, or you will break your heart. Trust me; I know.

Be gentle with yourself. And if you need to, then please talk to a professional about your grief. Because what you experienced was trauma, and not many people can heal from that on their own.

All of my love to you. I will be thinking of you and your sweet kitty cat.

I did the same thing years ago but to a dog. 

I found Chuckie a Pekingese on the side of the road and picked him up and brought him home because I did not want someone to hit him. We had him neutered and we were going to keep him. I ran him over. 

I still see it. (((hugs)))
