It is very rare I am at a loss for words.  Then someone shows me a photo of a car driving down the street…with a cat leashed to the hood[1].  I just…I can’t.


A mysterious driver was spotted on the road with a cat tied to the front of her car and it wasn’t because she was driving a Jaguar. New Philadelphia, Ohio resident Polly Vandall snapped a photo of the cat perched on the Buick driven by an elderly woman on Monday and posted the photo to her Facebook. The photograph has since been circulating the internet and causing an outrage among animal lovers who fear the cat may be in danger.

There I was, sitting at a red light, in the middle of town. I look up and see….. Cat. On a leash. Tied to the hood of a car. Driving through town.?#?thisJustHappened?’ she wrote with her post to Facebook..

While concerned residents have contacted the local police, and investigation isn’t underway.  Both the police and the humane society think it might be difficult to make a case for animal cruelty.
