TC writing letter to say sterilisation works
Another TC just wrote to us. This was a TC that very early on had an officer who was trying to tell one of the feeders (who was admittedly a very irresponsible feeder) that feeding was illegal. Now after working with us, he has become very helpful and has even recommended that other officers within the TC work with us. He is also the one officer I know who answers emails even at night.
Apparently there was an article in the Shinmin papers yesterday about irresponsible cat feeding on the second floor.
The TC is responding but for the first time I can remember, they are actually writing to say that feeding is not illegal but littering is. Apparently they went down and spoke to the feeder and told them about responsible feeding guidelines which the feeder agreed to adhere to! They are also writing that sterilisation works and is proven to be an effective solution! This in an area where there aren't even caregivers sadly.
The officer sent me the draft to ask if it was okay with us. There was one mistake though - they mentioned trapping any unsterilised cats and sending them to the AVA for sterilisation in that area. I emailed to ask the officer to correct that.
