Difficult Property Manager again

The difficult Property Manager is at it again. She sent pest control down today to try and have the cats removed, despite the fact that the GM had agreed the volunteers would be contacted first. She claimed she had not gotten a directive yet. I told her that I had already emailed her and did not get a response, and she claimed that she had gotten my email and had written to her GM to clarify. In the meantime, she was still trapping cats.

She also continued about how cats that were sterilised were just taken to the AVA and not killed though I had explained this to her the last time. When I offered to ask someone from AVA to clarify with her, she refused. She also did not want to check with her other colleagues at the main branch of the TC.

I am going to write to her GM and to the MP (whom we happened to see outside the town council the other day) because her behaviour is unacceptable.

This property manager obviously is acting on her personal vindictive view of cats and is highly unprofessional in discharging her duties. If she is in my TC, I would write that she be removed from her post.

That seems to be the only way to ensure the safety of the cats. I pray that the cats won't be caught.

My MIL's block had a close shave recently. Some people came to trap cats (all sterilised), and it seems that one of the siamese-mix managed to jump out and escaped. Fortunately, another siamese-boy was not caught. This boy is special - he did a lot of good in changing the views of the old folks there towards cats, and now accompanies them at their evening gathering.

I suspect sometimes the pest control people will just "anyhow" trap some cats to collect their "rewards" and such docile cats are "sitting ducks". Cats,after all, cannot protest that they are not from the block of complaints and some TC officers like this property manager, will not bother to investigate and deem their duties discharged once pest control people are called in.

i would have suggested that she pays Woodbridge - sorry the Institute of Mental Health - a visit to check her mental state. she is certainly a danger to society, not just cats.

Kanchong - no she is not :) If there was a problem in your area, and I know that you are there, I would call and let you know.

Highly irresponsible. She obviously knows she is in the wrong but she wants credits for "making the effort to create a clean environment". That's why a lot of people are cynical towards the TCs. Because there are such examples that makes us really turn off. Some people would probably dare not approach TCs in case they meet someone as schrecklich (German for terrible) as her. "Sie ist sehr schrecklich!" (she is very terrible)

Kayley, that's why I think it's important not to let someone like this get away with it. If everyone remains quiet and doesn't approach their town council, then they WILL get away with it, and things will get worse.

Anonymous i think if she can just refrain from being difficult, that would be good enough. Let's see what happens.

Make sure she is transferred out of this planet and not to another TC!
