But he somehow escaped death this morning! A man came to my front door shaken up , handed me Vlads collar and proceeded to tell me that he just witnessed my cat being hit by a car. He said that the driver took off and Vlad appeared to have ran off afterwards. The collar was mangled and looked to have been crushed by the vehicle so I was sure that he was no longer with us. I called for him numerous times and within 40 minutes he trotted back into my yard with only a bit of bloody head. He appears to be fine! My gut instinct tells me that the man at my door was the man that did it as he was obviously very upset. This cat must have 9 lives.
