Bless you for sharing with us, Enigma! I, too, try to move slain cats off the road.
Last summer, I got lost driving over to Sacramento, and I passed the same deceased cat twice. The 2nd time, I saw some teen boys laughing at it, because it's paw was up in the waving position
It was a busy intersection, but I donned gloves & managed to move the cat to the roadside without being struck. I covered his remains with thorns topped by wildflowers.
The most heartbreaking scene for me was about 1am. I was coming home from work, and driving past a section of town with a very poor trailer park, saw a young female gray whose collar glittered in my headlights. So heartbreaking, she had on a little pink collar with pink rhinestones & a little red bell! Someone had truly treasured the precious little darling. I gently laid the little one next to the roadway, on a newspaper, so that her owners would know that someone cared enough to put their little princess where she wouldn't be mangled. In the morning, on my way to driving my daughter to school, I passed the spot & the little gray kitten with the pink collar had been picked up. And I knew that even tho she & her family lived in one of those ramshackle travel trailers, she was loved....I still get teary when I think of it.....Anyway, Hugs to you all for caring for those cats who die on the roadways...
