Putting cats in danger
I just spoke to some caregivers this morning. It appears in both cases the complaint was about defecation outside peoples' homes. Of course when the caregivers went down it was because of pet cats that were allowed out to wander. In one of the blocks, the caregiver said she found that there were at least four different families with cats. One unit had food directly outside their unit but denied they were feeding cats. Why would some stranger come and put food outside YOUR flat?
The really sad thing about all this is that the community cats get rounded up! The town council and HDB have both been down too, but to no avail, because after all, these cats don't 'belong' to anyone. They're not pets because you're not allowed to have a pet cat, so they're allowed to wander everywhere where inevitably they defecate. The caregiver in one of the areas told me that she would have been very surprised if there was NO defecation given the sheer number of unsterilised pet cats walking around.
What can we do about people who persistently refuse to listen and put cats in danger?
