I have experienced it myself—suddenly realizing a car was approaching in a parking lot or on the street, but not having heard it behind me. It’s those darn, quiet electric cars. Especially on a freshly paved roadway, where car tires roll so quietly, the electric cars whish past in a whisper. If we can’t hear them, neither can roaming cats and it appears that this is becoming a problem—even for cats belonging to electric car owners. If you drive one of them, please be careful. And if you walk a lot like I do, be more aware. And if your cats go outside, consider bringing them in—away from danger—or create a cat proof fence to keep them safe on your property.
