I went by to this block of flats I've been to earlier and saw this water bowl and some cats hiding behind a bicycle. I spoke to the rather sullen young man in the flat. I asked if the cats were theirs or if they were feeding the cats. He denied it. I told him that we were concerned as there had been complaints and we were concerned the cats would be rounded up. He then came to the door.
He claimed the cats come up even though they do not want them to. I asked him to please stop feeding upstairs if that was what they were doing or to ask any neighbours he might know to do the same. I said that while it was not illegal to feed, feeding upstairs draws the cats upstairs as well.
I also told him to please sterilise the cats under his care. I explained that we can help with subsidised sterilisation slots if he needs them. I gave him some information and asked for his email address which he gave. I'll give him some time to digest what I've given him.
