Jacin just read the email sent by a constant whinger and emailed me to say she did not know whether to laugh or be very worried. I have to agree with her. This person (who writes in under an alias) has written in to complain several times. He complained that there was a cat defecating in his corridor - but alas, he could not tell us which floor he lives on because of security concerns. He complained that someone had left cardboard for the cats to sleep on. He complained that there were a lot of cats around. I went down twice - and saw only a few sterilised cats.
He complained that there is an aggressive feeder around. However, he could not tell us whom this aggressive feeder is, because she might try and harm him in some way. He complained that a cat defecated in front of him in the void deck two weeks ago (according to the caregiver, this particular cat tends to do it when the grass is too soggy). He was appeased when the caregiver gave him her contact number and said she would go down anytime.
Now he has written in to say that he saw another couple feeding yesterday. It is not the feeder because he recognises her - no, this is an altogether different couple. According to him, it is no wonder that the cats are lazy, fat and have poor discipline since they are being fed so many times.
He also said that it's not true that cats don't scratch cars - he scratched a piece of bird defecation off his car with his fingernail and it left a scratch.
I asked if he might speak with this couple, but he said he has no power to do so, not being a member of the NEA or the town council. I pointed out that the caregivers and I aren't either, but we're talking to these people too.
I wrote back to query what he meant by poor discipline and pointed out that cats are animals. This lovely person wrote back to say that ALL animals need discipline - including the lizards who make too much noise by mating near his corridor light.
I have written to the town council to say that they should clearly just ignore this guy. I told them if they continue to put up with his nonsense, they'll soon have to start taking action against the lizards.
