Speeders be warned

I would like to remind drivers to slow down.

Our quiet street along Blackburn Avenue in White Rock seems to attract speeders and careless drivers on a road that is home to many young children and animals.

We lost our first cat, Indy, on Aug. 15, 2010, right in front of our house. On Aug. 24, 2011, we lost our second cat, Bentley, also right in front of our house.

The lady who hit Indy went door-to-door to find the owner to apologize for her actions, and also dropped off a rose plant/card to our doorstep. It took the anger out of grieving for our beloved family cat, as we know accidents can happen.

Our second cat, 10-month old Bentley, was left in his own pool of blood all over the road for our two young boys to see. That driver was silent and heartless and did not stop.

Our boys wanted to know why that person did not stop to say “sorry.”

If that driver travels down our street again, he/she will no doubt see all the chalk warnings that say “slow down” and “speed kills” and “RIP” to our two family cats that we mourn and loved.

We want the community to know to slow down on our street, and that next time take responsibility for your actions if you speed and injure or kill a family pet.

We feel this message is important so that no child is injured or hurt on our street and no more pets killed.

Leslie McDougall & family,

White Rock
