I would never tell a lie


I would never tell a lie

The town council I met last week asked for the number of cats that each caregiver was taking care of, so that they would know how many cats there were in each area.

One of the caregivers went around asking the others to collate the figures, and people starting under-reporting the numbers to her. This is really bad for two reasons.

(1) If the town council finds out, your credibility is shot;
(2) If there is a complaint, and they go to count, they'll tell you obviously sterilisation is not working, and that you're doing a bad job because the number increased.

We agreed to come up with numbers so that we could immediately tell if the number of cats had increased. right now, there is no way to tell. A complainant will say the number has increased, and there is no base number to compare with.

If they were planning to kill the cats, why bother meeting with the residents and agreeing to work with them? They might as well just kill the cats on their own. Knowing their number doesn't help.
