    Had a nice Christmas day with family, but on the way home doing 50 (speed limit) on a country road a cat darted out in front of the car.  No time to evade it,  and multiple thumps made it very unlikely that it survived.   Really no place to pull over, I didn't think there was any chance it was just injured, and I couldn't bear to look at it, so I didn't stop.

    A half mile down the road a couple of kids were riding bicycles with no lights and only very small reflectors.  They were on the other side of the road when I passed them, so no close call with me.  However though the road was little traveled, if there were a car in each direction it would be dangerous.  If someone else were in my car I think I would have had them call 911 and report it.

    Though it's sad regardless, I hope the cat was feral and not someone's pet.  

    I don't even like killing bugs.  This sucks.
