Thank you. I have a feeling that she's gone, and I truly hope that it was quick, unless the alternative is her being fine and happy at home tonight. I just hate my imagination, I don't want to picture her lying somewhere suffering. It's mkaing me sick. She was only a year or so old. Praying she's either ok or in kitty heaven already..
Jingling that you find your kitty at home and with just some bumps and bruises.
We have had a couple run over in the barn parking lot that have survived no worse for their adventures. How I will never know, but they have such resilient little bodies.
HUGS to you!! I was unloading a pickup full of sawdust once and our Lab/ Rott mix must have been laying under the truck sleeping. I finished, got in, started it up and drove forward and went over a huge bump. Herd a yelp! yelp! yelp! and saw her running like a "bat out of hell" for parts unknown. I was inconsolable knowing I had just killed my dog. She came back a couple hours later and lived for at least 7 more years. So there is hope.
Well, I'm off for the house. Please keep sending jingles...Mods, I know this isn't horse related, I'm sorry, I understand if you need to close it, but if it's still open tomorrow I will post an update. Thanks so much for all the support, guys.
Jingles here! -It is one of my worst fears too...I hit a pregnant stray cat crossing the road at about 35 mph- she dropped like a stone. I got out, picked her up, brought her home- she lost the kittens, but she was FINE-couple weeks of rest and she was good as new, and ready to be on her way (feral). They are tougher than we think-hopefully your kitty bounces back as well and will be home and safe.

She could be okay
I accidentally dropped the tractor bucket on my 14lb terrier. He was sleeping under it and I didn't see him. I only heard a squeak when I stood up to get off. I looked down and his tiny head was sticking out, he couldn't even bark he was so squashed. Then in a panic I couldn't remember what direction lifted the bucket up so risked crushing him. When I lifted the bucket there was a doggy imprint in the dirt so it did squish him.
I aged about 10 years in 10 minutes rushed the dog up to the vet and he was perfectly fine. Actually after that he could suddenly jump to shoulder hight(7 yrs old when it happened) and he previously even as a pup couldn't jump more than 12" high so I guess I fixed something. A year later he is still fine.
I also know a farrier that showed up at a farm with 2 chickens that apparently rode under the truck 40 minutes from home with him. It was quite a laugh to see him drive out with 2 chickens in the cab with him.
Jingling like crazy for you and either way forgive yourself. I remember how hard that was. ((hugs))
