Injured Cat

Nicole from West End

A black (with some white) cat was hit about 9pm at junction of Cook Street and College Street Roundabout. It is definitely injured but ran (limping) from scene very quickly and disappeared.
We enquired with neighbours and searched for it with no result. Nearest house for it to run to was the big two-storey house opposite the pharmacy and dairy.
So sorry this happened, I hope the kitty and owner are reunited and can get the help it needs.
