Statistics

Thank you to those of you who sent in their statistics even though you did not want to claim reimbursements. We really appreciate it because this will really help us get a better idea of the number of cats done and how successful TNRM programmes are running. It'll also help us get a better idea of abandonment and abuse among other things.

if ALL the cats in my area are sterilised, with no increase in numbers, do i still need to send in the forms every month?

though once in a while, there 1 or 2 abandoned cats, but normally they "disappear" after a few days.

Do we count them as well?

If there are no increase in numbers that month, then there is no need to send in the form (presumably there is nothing to claim either).However, if you do see new abandoned cats, do drop us the form - if they disappear you can mark it down on the form in the future. Thanks!

Will it be possible in a near future for submission to be made online, especially for people who do not want to claim for sterilization? Perhaps a password assess to information within the area that is managed by a few caregivers so that they can see for themselves the statistical changes. Caregivers can also upload photos of the community cats too.

That's a good suggestion, we'll look into it.

Reminded of a question I keep forgetting to ask: What about free-ranging pet cats?

There's a number we've sterilised, they hang around, and we know who their owners are... should they be included as well?

Calsifer - good point. Perhaps we should add a column to the existing form.

those who sent in claims with their statistics also did a great job.

it is much meticulous work coming up with these statistics.

the reimbursement is helpful in aiding caregivers with limited resources, extend their good work sterilising more cats.

Yes it is Anonymous - I didn't mean to suggest they weren't doing a good job. I'm just especially glad that people who weren't claiming also went to the trouble because as you said, it is work to compile the statistics.
