And frankly, that's just bizzare. I'm glad your cat is OK, but seriously, who thinks that a message like that is ever the way to go? If I (even thought I) accidently ran over someone's pet, I'd be right there, right then, sobbing and apologizing.
I mean, that's just weird. The level of non-empathy that demonstrates is a dealbreaker, for me. I don't even care if he was embarrassed or whatever.
