Purrfect example of compassion
What could have been a horrific situation turned deeply moving.
Numerous Peninsula residents halted their rush to work to come to the aid of a cat that had darted in front of a vehicle and gotten itself hit on Stayte Road near Columbia just after 8 a.m. on Feb. 20.
A number of drivers pulled their vehicles off the road and stepped out, offering to help. A couple of people went door-to-door to try to locate the cat’s family.
A passing member of South Surrey’s finest stopped and called the SPCA Emergency and stayed to direct traffic.
Most touching was the motorist who struck the cat, turned her truck around and returned to the scene. She stayed with the cat, stroking it and speaking soothingly until help came.
Gratitude and blessings to all those selfless and compassionate neighbours!
