Dear Crazy "Be Kind to Dead Animals" person,

Dear Crazy "Be Kind to Dead Animals" person,

Thank you so much for being so kind to the road kill right outside my neighborhood.  I understand  the type of person you are, but not why you did what you did.  You are very kind to animals.  You care.  But, being kind to road kill?  This is the circle of life baby.  Be an adult.

The curious way you tucked the sheet of cardboard around the giant dead possum in the street was truly touching, but it also made the poor thing look like it was taking a nap in the middle of the street.   His (?) little head was poking out of the cardboard like you had swaddled him in his blankie, NOT like he was dead and waiting for Mike Rowe's Dirty Jobs friends to come and pick him up.  As my favorite line in Such A Pretty Fat said, the possum was taking a "nap on the side of the road after eating his jelly donut."

I am wondering about your intentions.  I have had some over the top pet-owner friends that shower their pets with treats, carry them around in purses, and send them to daycare while they are at work, but none of them pampered the road kill.  Please explain.

Hugs and Jelly Donut kisses,
