This woman is still complaining. She SMSed yesterday to say that the cats are still coming up. The TC had said they would send pest control down last week.
I checked with the officer and he said all the cats downstairs are sterilised. The cat that she complains about is not - and it's also not a community cat evidently. Someone in the block I spoke with said it was her friend's cat (I suspect it may actually be hers).
So this woman is still complaining. She wanted to know why the cat she complained about is not removed. I told her that as far as I know, TCs generally don't run around the block catching particular cats - they usually send in pest control and will remove any unsuspecting cats sitting downstairs. I told her that I had already explained this to her previously that her insisting on the removal of the cats would not solve the problem.
The woman kept insisting the cat is always outside her aunt's flat and should be easy to spot and remove. I told her that in fact when I went down, the cat was not there. She complained that the TC cannot possibly just go down one time and be done with it. I told her that every time she complains and they have to deploy pest control, people are paying for it too. You may remember in my earlier post that she had previously wanted the TC and ourselves to go down periodically and drop notices to her neighbours. When I asked her why she couldn't walk the 50 m over to her neighbours' place and speak to them, she said she didn't always see them, because she doesn't actually live there!
I just spoke with her as well and she said that it is all just a 'show' and she doubts the TC went down at all or that they did not go floor by floor.
Some people seem to have this annoying habit that they must be served on hand and foot. I understand she has a problem, but the TC isn't going to be bothered to comb the block floor by floor to find the cat she is complaining about. Plus if she is so annoyed about the feeding, would it kill her to just speak with her neighbours?
She said that nothing has been done by the TC - but she has done absolutely nothing either, except to complain and complain again.
