More mediations - we have just been talking about re-thinking our approach to people who let their cats out or who feed cats upstairs. I used to think it was just about speaking with them and that people who were ignorant of the problems caused, would stop especially if they were made to realise that the cats would be killed.
Increasingly though I realise that while SOME people do respond very positively (and are very sorry for the problems caused), others either blatantly deny the cat is theirs, or ask you to just take the cat away! This seems to be happening more and more. I've just drafted a new Mediation note to ask these semi-cat owners as Rebecca calls them, to keep the cats in, or for people to feed downstairs. Any suggestions would be welcome since the idea of the cat or cats being killed does not seem to bother them.
