I just spoke to a caregiver who mentioned to me that she had been paying off a cleaning supervisor. According to her, the supervisor calls and tells her that there are problems in the area and will call in pest control. However she has found that by giving him a bribe, he lays off the cats. She says he never takes the money directly, but she leaves it on a table and he picks it up, and the complaint goes away.
I asked if I could come down and speak with the person, but she said not to, as the man now alerted her if there were problems. If she paid him off, he didn't trap the cats. I said that if there were problems, if the area was being taken care of, the cats should not be removed anyway. I know this caregiver and she is very responsible. However, she said the rest of the feeders there were not very good at taking care of the cats. She said that there were irresponsible feeders dumping food around and she could not find them no matter how hard she tried. She said there was food dumped even though they were feeding responsibly and cleaning up and she could not find these ghost feeders. In addition, cats were being abandoned, and when she went and claimed some of the cats that were trapped, none of the feeders wanted the cats back.
