Well, First of all, the cat's probably dead, did you check to see if it had a tag, or did you just keep on driving? if it did, did you inform the owner that you killed their pet? Third, what is your bumper made out of? If it's fiberglass it can be repaired, if it's urethane or ABS plastic then it can't, although those two types of materials rarely crack anyway, they often deform or if given enough stress, will tear, not crack.

Damn that sucks, man! Cat's are cool :D. I saw one the other
day ALMOST get hit by an SUV. That fucker was chasing
another cat across the road when it realized: "Oh shit,
CARS!", did the "squirrel dance", and barely got away.
Anyway, epoxy might work for the crack, maybe?

I was inches away from hitting a big ass skunk last night when I was coming home from work. I had to swerve like crazy to dodge the stupid thing. I am so lucky I didnt hit it though.

Good luck w/ your bumper... go to a repair place and get a quote, they may be able to bondo it and repaint that spot for pretty cheap. And just temporarly I'd use bondo.

OH MAN! Whatever you do in life, DO NOT HIT A SKUNK! But
if you do, ketchup gets rid of the smell. Somewhat :D.

You shouldn't use bondo to repair the crack. It'll just crack again.

Like someone else said, if the bumper is urethane (like a factory bumper), you'll probably just have to get a new bumper.

If the bumper is fiberglass it can probably be repaired.

I hope you at least checked to see if the cat had tags, rather than just leaving it there.

I wonder how the heck it even got out there. That's crazy, I'm suprised it didn't cause another accident, with it being on the highway and all.

Go to www.importfan.com and buy a bumper for like $250, and you'll get a free carbon fiber hood with it.

a life is gone and we're more worried about materialistic things :rolleyes:
does a fucking cat count? My friend use to hold kittens under water until they stopped moving.

Everytime he sees people with kittens in front of a market giving them away, he will get one and fuck with it.

I don't do that shit, but if I hit a cat with my car, I really wouldn't car. It's a worthless cat.
