Don't get taken advantage of
I just spoke with a rather upset woman for quite a while as she is having problems with another feeder in the estate. The feeder passed the woman some kittens and paid her some money to board them and promised to take them back two weeks ago.
The kittens also got sick and the woman brought them to the vet. Apparently, when she told the feeder about it, the feeder told her that it was just too bad, and to bury them if they died.
The woman is upset because she says a lot of people tend to come and pass her cats and that she cannot cope. She said that other people ask her to take over their feeding routes, or ask her to take in cats and she is already struggling. She said her own cats are getting very stressed out too. She wanted to know what she can do about the feeder.
I told her frankly, there is nothing she can do with regards to these cats except perhaps put them up for adoption. She could of course dump the kittens outside the feeder's house provided she knows where the feeder lives, but speaking to the woman, I don't think she could bring herself to do it.
On a longer term basis however I told her to just say no when the feeder comes by again. Some people pick up cats and blackmail others into taking them in (the cat will be sent to the SPCA, it may end up on the street if you don't take it, etc). What I told her she needs to do is say no the next time. There is a certain limit everyone can take - and it's important for the person taking the cats in to say they cannot. If you say you will take the cats in when you can't, you're sending the wrong message out too.
