Appeal to find driver after cat loses leg after hit and run

A PEDIGREE cat injured in a hit and run has had to have its leg amputated.

Palin, a Turkish van breed, suffered a dislocated hip and broken leg in an accident in Runcorn, on Friday.

His owner, Scott Hones, aged 50, of Weston Point, said: “I got home from work and started calling him.

“He heard my voice and managed to crawl in on two legs.

“He has been hit by a vehicle. I’m trying to find the driver. I don’t want to have a go at them, just claim off their insurance for the cost of making him better.

“I’m looking for witnesses who would be kind enough to contact me.”

Scott, who is a driver, believes the accident may have happened in Russell Road, Lancaster Road or the Sandy Lane area.

Scott and his partner, Julie Hamboin, aged 52, only started work a month ago.

If you saw the accident or have any information, please call Scott on 07969 283261.

I felt I had to comment on this.Why did you leave your cat out whilst at work?? The cat would have been safer inside until you came home.My cats are always in before I go anywhere as you cannot trust anyone these days! Hope you cat gets better soon.
