I just found out from one of the caregivers last night that one of the residents who accompanied her to the Meet the Peoples' session last night did so even though he is having examinations today. He's a young man who has put in a lot of time and effort to help the cats. Too often caregivers say they are busy and undoubtedly they are. However, it's a question again of priorities and how important the cats are to you - to this young man, even though this is not 'his' area nor 'his' cats, they are a priority. His dedication is an inspiration!
At the same time, the caregivers were discussing conducting a door to door survey last night. They don't believe that the residents there want the cats removed and from speaking to other residents they do not get that feeling. However from what was said, as long as the RC which is deemed to be representative, continue to ask for the cats to be removed, the TC looks likely to bend to their demands (despite the fact the town council gave the RC members the wrong information in the wrong place).
By actually asking the residents, they'll be able to find out what the residents really think. So the next question is - would anyone be willing to help out? There are a fair number of blocks to cover and the more people, the faster the survey will go!
