There's fur on my car!!! Kill the cat!

The man who claims the cat scratched his car just wrote back. He wrote at midnight and he just wrote again and claims that this is 'dragging on' and he is getting impatient.

He says that the 5 cats removed were obviously the wrong cats - and that if he didn't see the fur on his car every day then he could live with it. So 5 cats were killed for no reason and he is still upset because there is fur on his car.

He also asked if his paint is the problem, then does it mean that he should repaint his car so the cats can't scratch it. It seems to be that if it bothers him so much, then yes he should. In addition, his whole reason for believing the cat is scratching his car is that he sees the cat on his car, he sees fur, he sees scratches - ergo, the cat must be scratching his car.

Same thing with someone ELSE'S car. He saw the two cats on the car fighting. He went up and looked at the car and saw three scratches after that - Sherlock Holmes here then deduced it MUST BE the cats. If people like him were judges, I think everyone would be in jail right now.

Also he cannot be 'bothered' in his own words to tie the car cover down every night. So if he can't be bothered, then it should stand to reason that he can't be that attached to the car. It is a PUBLIC carpark - people can scratch the car, birds can defecate on it, a tree branch might fall on it. If the car is so precious, go rent a garage somewhere and lock it up - oh and watch out! There might be lizards or ants lurking in there all ready to pounce on the car.

Thanks to Moglee who is getting a friend to help answer some questions on what can cause scratches on a car. Thanks also to my friend who offered to loan his car for me to try putting cats on to see if they scratch it :)

May we remind town council where this a***h*** lives that his fellow residents are footing the bill for all the "Wrong" cats that have been killed and will be killed. Shall we suggest to have this a***H*** culled instead?

Hi Dawn

Pl tell that stupid man that the fur either belongs to a dog or some soft toys or a torn pillow or bolster. Cats sit on car but they don't scratch smooth surface. They only love to scratch rough and hard surface to trim their nails. I call him a fool. Pl tell him that. I am serious. He has no brain.

Thanks Ang Gu Gu.

Anonymous exactly - who's going to pay for the cats killed? Who's going to pay for the money spent on sterilisation and food?

Unfortunately Anonymous from the complaints, it would seem many of them have no brain - or at least they don't use it!

Can I have the town council's name so that I can move there and start emailing them what I find on my cars every day
1) Dust
2) Leaves
3) Finger prints from school kids
4) Flyers on my windscreen
5) Scratches by doors of cars parked next to mine

and I want the Town Council to do good the damage by paying for
1) New Paint Job periodically
2 Paying the car-wash man
3) Culling anyone who parks next to me.

Hey, point out the car to me. I'll arrange for someone to spray paint "owe $$ pay $$" on it.

He'll have other things to worry about - actually, that may be it, you know. He probably has a wife who hates him, a nowhere job, internal dissatisfaction, screaming about the cats is his only outlet. You're doing a good deed, Dawn - you may be the only thing between him and a heart attack.

poor cats. Now, if there was a decapitated lizard, that would really be a problem..

Does the TC recognise that the man is batshit crazy? If they don't, can you write out his arguments to date?

I truly don't understand these people who do nothing but complain and complain and complain...they obviously have very little love in their hearts to pick on a poor defenceless cat over a small matter like shedding fur!!

Fur anyway flies off the car the minute you drive it off so I just don't understand why this person is being so nasty. He should be ashamed of himself cuz that whole thing made him come across as petty and zhuo boh.

So you're saying we should shoot every bird that flies past because it may crap on our cars? How would this moron like it if I shot him for dropping strands of HIS hair? What a half-wit. Why doesn't he go rent his own private garage since he's so fscking afraid of anything getting on his precious car? The town council is pretty much as stupid as him for listening to his petty raving.

I hardly think fur on your car is worth one life, let alone five. They may be cats, but that doesn't mean their lives count for nothing. >:(

do you notice Dawn that many of these unreasonable but totally dumbassed complainants tend to be men? 'cos once they hear or see a female voice/name on the email, they automatically engage in bullymode?

and women complainants tend to moan about how scared sh*tless they are when cats start following them home?

That's interesting Anonymous because a caregiver just called up about a resident complaining she was scared of the cats outside her flat but unable to give very much other information.

I'm not sure if they tend to bully more when they hear that I am a woman - must test it out and ask a man to write back next time :)

my suggestion for this 'stupid man' -

ask him to PARE DOWN his lifestyle ...

1) quit his 24/7 job ... i bet he has a nasty boss & is unhappy at work ...

2) sell his car & take the bus (cat scratch problem solved) :-)

3) since he has more free time, keep a pet cat & he'll learn the joys of being with a domestic animal ...

4) do some meditation, spend time with family/friends, learn to be contented ...

5) cultivate a healthy lifestyle ... he looks like he's heading for a heart-attack, this type of angry folks ...

i know this 'stupid man' is the exact opposite of all the above ... but thats just my wish for people like him ...

I agree with the comments here that the complainant is a moron, etc. But the biggest moron here is the town council officer, who actually bothered to respond to such a complaint by having five cats killed.

The good news is that I realised that the caregiver had taken the cats out last week - these were the cats the TC at first would not return to her. Three of the cats are someone's pet cats and they have been taken indoors.

The complainant keeps writing to complain about fur AGAIN. He wants to minimise the risk of the cats on his car. He said that I should sell my PC to minimise risks of viruses - not quite sure why. I pointed out no one was asking him to sell his car, secondly, a scratch or fur isn't going to make his car stop working (unlike a virus making a PC crash) and thirdly, no one is going to feel sorry for you if you 'forget' to use your virus software and get attacked, just as he can't be bothered to put the car cover on.

Hi, please do me a favour. The next time this male bitch calls up again, please do ask him what if a bird shits on his car? Is he going to call the Jurong Bird Park? Please, please, please. Just ask him this.
And highlight to him about the Parking Places Act.
If all else fail, tell him the next time he sees scratches and fur, please don't remove the evidence, call us and we will send out man down to take photographs.
Hell, if he is around Eunos, Marine Parade area, I can do that for you and act a bit cocky.
