My cat was hit by cruel BMW driver who laughed in my face after killing my beloved pet | The Sun
THIS is the moment a BMW driver ran over a cat – before laughing in the face of the sweet pet's owner, it's been claimed.
In a shocking video, the driver can be seen trying to reverse before hitting the white cat.
And the family say the driver showed "no remorse whatsoever" – and even laughed at them.
Alicia Robinson, 28, and Robin Newsome, 32, from Halifax, were at home on their quiet residential street when a driver hit their one-year-old cat yesterday.
Ice, named for his white fur, was rushed to the vet but sadly died of his injuries.
Remembering the aftermath, Robin said: "He got out of the car and thought it was funny. He just wrecked our family."

The man, who was unknown to the couple, did pass on his details, but had "a smile on his face, laughing, sniggering," according to Alicia.
Ice's distraught owners believe he would have been clearly visible.
Robin said: "It is cruelty to animals. There is no way you cannot see an all pure white cat."
He later added: "Every driver should be taking care, that could have been a child."

The couple said they reported the driver to the RSPCA, and they plan to contact the police.
They also sent him the vet's invoice but have not heard back.
Now, they are calling on him to "to do the decent thing" and pay so they can cremate their pet and bring his ashes home.
"We as a family are broken," said Robin.
