Slow Cat Crossing in Neighborhood – Sign 13

Sunday, June 19, 2022

We have pretty a lot of signs across the city. Few signs concern with serious matters, others just for simple things.


Uniquely, some signs are made by common citizens for whatever reasons



Fig 01- Sign for slow cat crossing


I guess that the sign “Slow Cat Crossing” (please see Fig 01 above) is created by a cat lover.


In my opinion, the sign is quite “confuse” and little bit funny, because it has at least three meaning:

- is cat moving slow?

- or just slow cat crossing?

- or ask car drivers to “please slow down?”



Fig 02- Just for illustration



Fig 03- A cat, sitting in the room


I think many animals (especially pets) are considered “slow,” because they are randomly run across the street without looking.


Based on reported from Repairer Driven News (RDN, 2022) that it is estimated about 2 million animals hit by cars annually in the USA.


This figure increased by 7.2% during pandemic years.


The collision is not only dangerous to human being but also to animal safety. Speeding is believed to be main factor in animal collisions.


Moreover, in fact, drivers speed through our neighborhood. Cats and other pets deserve a long life. What do you think?

  1. You're right! This is a little bit funny. Maybe an exclamation point, after slow would clarify things. Ya' think?

  2. ...signs like this can be read two ways. Does it mean the drive slow or is the cat slow?
    Fun!!!

  8. It's good to know there is a cat out and about. Although, I like keeping mind inside.

  10. Oh, that is kind of funny. But you do have to watch out for them.

  11. Best to leave the cat inside with this heatwave we are having. Although, in our town, we do have some who supply food and water for the feral cat colony. Most have been captured and neutered but set free with some outside housing for them. Of course, no A/C.

  13. A lot of signs are confusing! By the time the driver reads the sign the person in the car in back of them are blowing their horns! Way too many signs!

  16. At our favorite beach island, some signs are "Gopher Tortoise Crossing" (how do the tortoises know how to read the sign?) and "Slow Down -- You Might Egret It," with a picture of that lovely water bird. Thanks for the great post and God bless!
