The Cat in the Street

Driving home from the chinese restaurant, I saw a cat lying in the middle of the road, obviously injured, its tail slapping repeatedly and strongly against the ground. For a moment I thought I would have to pull off the side of the road to pick it up and take it to an animal hospital, but I knew I couldn't do it, and I turned my eyes away. I was stuck in long traffic on clayton, and I was stopped but a few yards from the poor thing. As I looked away to my right, I saw some ladies, one wearing a west coast choppers t shirt, pull off to the side of the road, get out and run to the cat with a blanket to retrieve the beast. I'm so thankful for those ladies who helped an injured cat lying in the middle of rush hour traffic.
