Well Done,I don't get the Journal (Don't see why i should pay for it when everyone else gets it delivered free ::) )
   I remember when I first moved and was comming home late one night.There was something lying in the road just befor the turning to your rd by the chip shop.At first I thought it was a fox as it seemed pretty big but when I stopped to move it it was a large dead siamese type cat complete with collor.
    I did not want the owner to find it squashed(for want of words)in the road in the morning so I moved it carefully onto the grass bank so they could at least find what had happened.A few days later a gentleman came up to my place with a present and thanked me for moving it as it was their cat.
     By the way off topic....put the billyrag in a lidded jam jar to keep it "fresh"! My boys are very smelly at present its that time of the year!! ;D

so sad  :'(  I hate seeing domestic pets that have been hit or run over.
there's still blood on our road where woody was killed, can't get it off.
will keep billy rag in a jar, thanks for the tip. just got back from DFT - have bought some rhode rocks and goldlines and had a chat about billy - they are so lovely there, my kids adore the place!!

little old man knocked on our door 10.30pm last night to say he'd just knocked down a cat. WOody's brother Bobby, our other kitten it was. He died in Tony's arms minutes later. Really fed up  :'(   lovely man though fo rletting us know. No more cats for us, not while we live on Brands Hatch, or so it seems

She did thank you Hilary'smum, I was really worried yesterday but she did come back and delivered a large, dead rat to my bedroom at 2am (!)  in fact she's just jumped on my lap so is definately hanging around bless her!!  Am feeling a bit better today but the children still very upset. Fortunately Tony has buried Bobby in the garden so today they have been visiting his grave  :'(

Hi everybody,
                 there is a very similar problem to that in a village close to me, the locals have invested in a dummy complete with high viz jacket and black hat and this gets moved about on a regular basis, slows them down quite considerably and they also have a roadside unit that shows the speed, not sure where they acquired it from but it does have a road agency sticker on it.
Maybe worth a try.  :)
