A woman has called for speed restrictions on her street after her beloved cat was hit and killed by a passing vehicle.
Hairdresser Jordan May Brown, 24, said her world “crumbled” after Fynn, a grey moggie, was found dead a week after being struck on Americanmuir Road, in Downfield.
Jordan had put out an appeal on social media asking for help to find Fynn after he went missing on December 27.
A woman later got in touch saying she had seen the cat get hit by a car.
Jordan said: “He died of his injuries from the impact of the car. He must have limped off and was found in my neighbour’s garden. He was crammed through the fence.
“His leg was totally mangled. We didn’t see it happen but it happened at night-time and a random lady spotted him and told my mum.
“He didn’t usually leave home so it was out of character, but he was a free roaming cat.
“He was just a little kitten and had a squint leg and foot from birth but that never stopped him doing anything in life.”
It is the second time in five years one of her cats has been hit by a car on the street.
Madz, another grey moggie, was struck on the same stretch of road. Luckily Madz survived – but it came at a price.
Jordan said: “She now has three legs and has put on loads of weight. She does not get out of the house any more.
“I remember coming home after school after she was ran over during the day.
“We don’t know how she got run over but dad had come home from work and found her screaming, because she was a loud cat.
“People do not understand that people live here – there are loads of kids and people with pets.
“We need some sort traffic lights or speed bumps at the junction between Americanmuir Road and Frederick Street because there is a blind corner and accidents happen easily.
“You hear about the boy racers on that stretch of road all the time when they are out racing between 5pm and 1am.”
Last year Dundee City Council launched experimental 20mph zones in The Glens area in a bid to reduce speeding.
The results are expected to be presented to the council later this year.
