SMS alert

Just got back from Bras Brasah where the adoption volunteer and I went to buy boards for the adoption drive next week.

I am still getting inundated by SMSes, emails and calls about the situation I mentioned earlier Here's the situation, the deadline already lapsed and no cats were caught. We do not know of any intended roundup at this point.

I understand from the caregiver that the TC plans to do a survey among residents about the cats. The caregiver has already gone door to door to speak with residents, but she thinks it best to see what the result of the TC survey is to decide if we ought to go around the neighbourhood and ask residents for specific questions if necessary. Right now, only one resident complained about the cats.

It's best to see what the TC (with help from the RC I believe) is going to ask first before deciding if a new survey is needed. How the questions are worded may be leading. For example, if the question is :- do you think there are a lot of cats in the neighbourhood, someone may agree with that statement. This of course is completely different from asking if someone would want those cats removed and killed.

So was is the protests and objections that won the cats a reprieve?

We spoke with them last week but I know that some of the caregivers' friends had called by then. I am sure that it did make the TC realise that people do care for the cats.
