"Cats are like rubbish"
Remember this woman? I called her to let her know the volunteer had gone down and did not see any cats hanging around in the void deck that she complained about. She had complained the cats were 'always' there but apparently they weren't when the volunteer went down. The volunteer asked which colour the cats are.
The woman said that she could not bear to look at the cats but they came in lots of different colours.
She then asked if the volunteer can come down at 3 am to scout around and find the cats as this is when she returns from work. I told her the volunteer needs to sleep and cannot be expected to come down at all hours of day and night.
I also told her that the vast majority of cats are sterilised except for three cats they are having trouble trapping (and which they will do).
She said that the cats are very scary and she wanted to know what the volunteers will do if they find the cats. She wants to know if they will take the cats away or kill them. She kept repeating that she is scared of them.
She asked if they can be taken away and killed. I explained the vaccum effect and asked what happens if new cats come in. She suggested they be killed too.
I said that what would happen to lizards too. She said she killed them too. I asked about dogs and she complained about them.
She said that she wanted to know if they can be taken away and put somewhere else. However she said to be sure not to put them at Circuit Road or Yishun Bus Terminal as she visits those places. I asked what happened if the cats were put in Toa Payoh and she happened to go there. She said that she never went there so it was fine to put them there.
She kept saying they should be dumped in the jungle. She also said like rubbish, they should be swept away just as the TC gets rid of debris every day.
I told her that hopefully we can try and be tolerant. I said for example, some people do not like children but don't ask for them to be gotten rid of. She laughed and asked whom would say that because children were people. She asked what kind of people would complain about children. I said that some people had the same reaction to her asking for dogs, cats, lizards, etc to all be killed as well.
I spoke to the volunteer and decided we're just going to shelve her complaints. Apparently she had called the TC in October and she complained they didn't do anything either.
