- Cat Hit By Car in Echo Park. “Last night [Aug 14] around 11pm or so I was walking up Echo Park Ave. [at Duane St]. As I was passing the yellow market with the shapes painted on the outside, I came across a cat that had just been hit by a car (the girl who was driving the car was standing by the cat, crying). It was a grey cat with black spots and a white belly, half white legs and a white triangle on its face as well as white cheeks, I believe. The cat was male and didn’t have a collar. It’s not there today – I guess it must have been removed. If you hear of anyone who is missing a cat that fits that description, please let them know.” (Posted Aug 15)
