My wife ran over a cat the other night on a public road. Cat just ran out and she couldn't stop in time! Cat was slightly injured and ran off. A woman in car behind my wife stopped and helped search for the cat, and at the same time told my wife that she is totally liable for all costs, e.g. vet bills as she was the driver of the car! Turns out cat wasn't badly injured, but owner has rung my wife asking her to pay the vet bill. Sorry for the cat...but I don't really think she is liable, can someone please help?
