To driver who killed kitten...

PUBLISHED: 10:00 21 April 2010 | UPDATED: 01:08 16 June 2010

We received a phone call at 8.30pm last Wednesday advising us that our kitten had been knocked over and had, unfortunately, passed away. Firstly, I would like to say a big thanks to the kind neighbours who made this call, from Rosemount Close, Honiton.

Secondly, I would like to say this to the big coward who hit our kitten in Rosemount Hill and failed to stop! I cannot understand how you can screech your brakes and then drive off... You obviously know you hit our beautiful black and white kitten. Words cannot describe how angry we are with you.

We are not unrealistic and know accidents happen, and had talked about the busy road behind us before getting Jessie, but it would have been made a little easier had you stopped, looked at her collar and called us.

I do hope you feel hugely guilty - if not for me and my husband, but for our daughter (nearly three years old) and think about how we have had to tell her the news that she will not be able to grow up with her kitten and play anymore.
