A pet lover from Dorset is calling for a change in the law to put a legal obligation on drivers to report hitting a cat.
Gemma Conway from Chickerell near Weymouth has gathered more than 210,000 signatures for a petition in support of her campaign.
Ms Conway's cat Bertie has been missing since April and she fears he may have been hit by a vehicle.
Under current law, motorists must report hitting dogs and farm animals including horses but not cats.
You can find the petition and more information about the campaign here.
The RSPCA is appealing for information after a cat was allegedly thrown from a railway bridge in Bristol. It was then hit several times by cars travelling along the road below.
The incident was reported to the RSPCA at approximately 10.20pm on June 20 after a member of the public saw the black cat being run over on Glenfrome Road in the St Werburghs area of the city.
They spoke to a woman at the scene who claimed she had seen three youths throw the cat from the railway bridge.
RSPCA inspector Dan Hatfield is now urging that woman to come forward and contact him with any information she may have.
He said: “By the time I arrived at the location the cat was dead, but it is not clear whether or not they were alive when they were thrown off the bridge."
“I am very keen to speak to the lady who apparently saw the people who threw the cat from the bridge, but anyone who has any information can contact me via the RSPCA’s appeals line on 0300 123 8018 and leave a message."
The cat is described as a black adult, but was not microchipped.
