One of the caregivers called me up - they came down to trap the cats in her area and trapped two unsterilised cats that were actually around the corner from where she feeds and which another feeder looks after.
She called the officer and the officer said they are going to trap any cat because there have been complaints that there are irresponsible feeders in the area. The caregiver reasonably pointed out that the cats aren't the problem but the feeders - and that they needed the town council to help crack down on these people littering. If not, when new cats move in after the existing cats are caught, these people littering will just feed these new cats again.
The officer apparently told her that the feeders came out after working hours by which time she is not working so she couldn't talk to them. The caregiver promptly asked her why they couldn't try and catch these litter bugs but they COULD send pest control down early in the morning to trap the cats to which the officer had no reply.
