Hi, I know this has been posted by what seems many times and I just feel heartbroken for everyone.  

This morning on my way to work with my kids in the car to be dropped off at their Granny, I felt a bump as we drove out of the garage.  It was bucketing down with rain and I wondered what on earth I had run over when I saw my 12 year old cat leaping and running as fast as possible across the road to the neighbours.....I screamed and then thought, ok, he's running so he's not dead.  Rang the vets but couldn't get through so in the pouring rain I ran to the neighbours to get him and comfort him to find he was lying dead under their car!

Oh my gosh, why didn't i go there first before making a phone call and hold him in his time of pain and need...... :(

I just keep going over and over the pain he must have been in, what I did to him and the marks in the garage of his fur where I've crushed my poor fur baby.

My kids were in the car.....I just can't stop thinking about why he didn't move when I started the car and why I didn't check.

I hope this gets easier to deal with and the pain of losing a pet under those circumstances gets less.

Thanks for all the previous posts of support that we can read for comfort.

I'm so sorry this happened Caroline.  I think you and I must be going through something similar right now.  My rabbit was not feeling well, but I did not think she needed to go to the vet right away, and she died this past Monday.

I'm asking myself all the same sorts of questions you are.  I do think it gets better, but right now I'm just consumed with guilt.  One thing that has helped me is that I know I did not intentionally try to hurt my rabbit, just as you did not intentionally try to hurt your cat.  It was just an unfortunate accident.

I hope this helps in some small way.
