On Killing a Cat

"Hello."

"Alan.... I killed a cat!"

"Huh?"

"I killed a cat! Knocked into it and I could practically hear it stumbled and being rolled over underneath the car."

"Where are you?"

"In Subang. Just came out from Summit. Couldn't bring myself in stopping in time. It was running across the road, and that was when I drove into it."

"Har..."

"But after I drove past, I looked back and tried to see if it was okay, I didn't see any carcass or watsoever moving animal from the rear mirror..."

"Well... Cat is supposed to have 9 lives."

"What if this is the last one?"

"True also... Say a prayer lor."

"Har... How..."

"Can't do anything also now. What's done is done. It's a cat. Not a human yet."

"What is that supposed to mean? I'll kill people in the future?"

"Hahaha"

"Yeeesh!!! How? Later the cat keeps haunting me. I dunno if it's stuck underneath the car or something."

"Say a prayer lor. Hopefully it'll rest in peace."

"I don't know how..."

"Say AMITABHA."

"AMITABHA."

"Yeaps..."

"I feel so bad... I killed a life."

"Maybe it's okay. Don't be so hard on yourself."

"Sigh..."


Speaking about: First, Do No Harm...
Barely making it out into practicing Meds, and I have already broken the first rule. Sigh.

AMITABHA...

Oh I found another murderer at last. A decade ago, I borrowed someone's 1 day old Citroen and raced 180kph along Jalan Damansara after midnight. Piiaanngg! I hit a big stone loud and heard a Meow! The cat flew to opposite lane and died. Oh gosh, I have been driving like a snail since then. Namo Amitabha.

The cat you hit looked expensive from the photo.

Let's observe a minute of silence for kitty.

Was it the cat who slept on your bed?

Not intentional, so please do not fell guilty over it. Saying a prayer helps. ^_^

Blessed Amitabha.

Don't blame yourself unless you were driving recklessly at 150km per hour! Accidents do happen.

Did you check under your car or not? Maybe still stuck there waiting to give you a shock! : )

Sam said...

I am going to make sure you drive slowly when you come near my place. :)

And I'm sure the kitty won't become all Ju-On on you. With the little boy in the backseat. And the loud meow.

Hee hee~

Don't worry bout it, a prayer and a thought is all that matters.

Perky said...

Oh, poor cat. But hey, it wasn't intentional and I'm sure if you'd have seen the cat, you would've done your very best to avoid it :)

Paul said...

in order to break the killing precept, you got to have the intention to kill a living being. Since you dont have the intention, you are not breaking the killing precept.
