Cat Road Sense Following Lockdown

Please click image to enlarge

The current pandemic has led to a national lockdown, with visibly much less traffic now on our roads. On week 6 of lockdown, we felt it was time for this blog due to incidents increasing and the patterns we are seeing. Tragically, we are hearing of more reports of cats being hit by cars now than we do in normal times, with almost all reports echoing similar circumstances.

Not only are cats enjoying a false sense of security with temporarily quieter roads, many cars have also been caught speeding and incidents have been occurring during the daytime as well as at night.

These factors can be a deadly combination. Most cats steer clear of busy streets and congested roads normally, but they now see a quiet emptiness which is free for them to go and explore. Not only will they roam much further than they might usually, they will also take chances they haven't before.
