"Too Many Cats"
I'm sure some of you at least must have heard this complaint - that there are too many cats in an area. The town councils bring this up, or say that they have received a complaint about this. The problem of course is this - what is too many? Is too many one cat (as some complainants will say)?
For some people the threshold may be no cats. For others, more then twenty may be fine. What may be better is to take a subjective approach - see how many cats there are in the area when you start, and then you know whether the number has increased or decreased. For example, if the town council tells you there are too many cats, but the number of cats has actually decreased, then you know what to tell them. You might even want to get them to do a head count with you if you have a co-operative officer.
