Who's really causing the problem?
One of the TC officer's wrote to me today. She said there was a complaint about the cats but these were about sterilised cats.
It turns out that the complaint was about food being left behind in the walkway. I told the officer I would speak with the feeder and try and find out what we can but that this isn't a problem with the sterilised cats. If the allegation is true, it's a problem with people leaving food behind. It's not as if the cat is going somewhere, getting food, bringing it into this area and then leaving a mess by not cleaning up! The woman claimed the cats are defecating on the walkway as well so that does need to be looked into though I told the officer most cats do not defecate on a walkway - they prefer to bury their defecation.
She said that the complainant wanted to remain anonymous but was nasty. I told her I did appreciate the difficulty of her job but I don't think that just because a complainant is nastier should mean that the complaint has more validity. They should be based on merit - not who is meaner to the TC officer.
