Cars and cats don’t mix

Today I came upon a juvenile cat in the middle of the road. It had just been hit by a car, but was alive and just sitting there with it's head up. I went out to the road, waved at an oncoming car to stop and picked up the cat and carried back to my car. It was bleeding badly in the face and was obviously in shock. I drove to the nearest vet and a couple of assistants helped get it out of my car and into the clinic. After a few minutes the vet came out and said because it was a feral cat that it would be sent to the Sonoma County Shelter in Santa Rosa. A few hours later I called the shelter and was told that it had died at the clinic.
