Complaint - Unknown Or Other

I WAS DRIVING ON PLEASANT GROVE BLVD IN ROSEVILLE CA WITH A SPEED OF 44 MPH. IT WAS ABOUT 7:16 PM. ON MY RIGHT A SAW A BLACK CAT ON THE CURB AHEAD OF MY WALKING, TRYING TO MAKE IT'S WAY ACROSS PLEASANT GROVE BLVD. I MADE AN EMERGENCY STOP (DIDN'T HAVE TO COME TO A COMPLETE STOP) NOT TO HIT THE CAT. I PUSHED THE BRAKE PEDAL WITH FULL FORCE IN ORDER TO STOP IN TIME. THERE WAS NO ONE BEHIND ME AT THE TIME HAPPILY. HOWEVER, I NOTICED THAT THE ABS SYSTEM DIDN'T KICK IN AND HENCE MY BRAKES BLOCKED SHORTLY DURING THE EMERGENCY STOP. IN LA I HAD THIS HAPPEN TWICE TO ME THAT THE ABS DIDN'T KICK IN AND MY WHEELS BLOCK. IT'S EASILY REPEATABLE BY MAKING A STOP THAT REQUIRES A SHORT DISTANCE TO STOP. HAPPILY THIS IS HARDLY EVER NECESSARY, BUT I DON'T FEEL SAFE DOING IT. I HAVE DRIVEN TWO TOYOTA COROLLAS, THEY NEVER HAD THIS ISSUE AND ALWAYS THE ABS WORKED GREAT. IN THE 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS, THIS DOESN'T WORK WELL. IN ADDITION TO THE BRAKING ISSUES ON THE HIGHWAY, THIS IS ANOTHER PROBLEM WITH THE PRIUS BRAKE. IT MAKES ME FEEL INSECURE ON THE ROAD WITH THE PRIUS AND I DON'T ENJOY DRIVING IT DUE TO THESE ISSUES. IT'S JUST NOT SAFE!
