One of the caregivers wrote in and said there had been a change of management in the area she was looking after. She said that she had spoken to the new man who seemed to be in charge and he had something along the lines of the fact that some cats could be saved, but not all of them. She said that she was too scared to ask what had happened, and I can understand that, but it clearly weighed on her mind so she wrote to ask if I could help.
First of all, if something like this happens though, do ask - even if you think you might not like the answer. For one thing, knowing what the person meant is definitely better than not knowing - it'll definitely be bugging you all along and it may not have been anywhere as bad as what you thought it might be.
Second, even if it is bad news or news you don't like, you can start to deal with it. For example, say the person says they want to clear all the cats, you have advance notice and can start doing something immediately to stop it happening, rather than be caught unawares later on.
Third, the person who is in charge may be operating on misconceptions - ie they want to remove all the cats because they think that the cats will breed and breed and cause all manner of problem. Here's a good opportunity to speak to them about TNRM and to clear up their misconceptions. If you can explain TNRM, then don't feel embarrassed to start a conversation about it. Even if they do ask you something you don't know, let them know you'll find out and get back to them.
It'll be better for your peace of mind - and for the safety of the cats.
