Currently its the law to report hitting a dog with your car but the same does not apply to cats. Cats become just as much a part of a family as dogs do and to think someone has the legal right to drive away after hitting a cat with no repercussions is completepy immoral. 

Recently I found a cat on the side of the road that had been hit by a car and paralysed in her back legs. I couldn't believe she had been left on the side of the road petrified and alone and potentially in a lot of pain. Had I not picked her up and taken her to the vets she could've died a very painful death and the owners may never have gotten to say goodbye. To a lot of people pets are a part of their family and to many their only comfort or company. Being allowed to drive away from the incident with no repercussions may cause cats to die uneccesarily from lack of treatment or for the owners to be left waiting for a cat that will never return. 

I think if the rule applies to dogs its only fair it should apply to cats too and hopefully threat of being fined will prevent them from driving away from the scene and get them seeking the correct care no matter the outcome. This seems to be a growing issue and personally I couldn't think of anything worse than having a loved one taken away from me and to never be informed.
