Feeder was the complainant

I was just speaking with a caregiver about a block of flats near hers which she had been going down to check as she lives nearby. There have been a number of complaints about this block. Another complaint was just received, so she went down and spoke to a feeder at the block.

Here's the thing - it turned out that the complainant was the feeder. The feeder had been feeding upstairs on the second floor and did not sterilise. He continued to feed the kittens and the mother cat. Yesterday, the kittens had run and knocked over the plants and defecated outside his house. His neighbour complained to him, so he decided to ring the TC to take them away. He told the caregiver he had in fact just gone down to buy them food.

The caregiver said she told him that the cats would be killed. He was aware of it but said it was better to just clear them all. I asked if he might foster them temporarily, but the caregiver said she did not think so. I said I hoped he would at least stop feeding the cats from here on out, but she's not hopeful either.

watching cats eat must be very thrilling for these people ... they are not at all concerned abt the cats' welfare ... they love to watch cats eat, thats why they're always feeding, feeding ... but avoiding care-giving issues ...

dawn, he's obviously not a caregiver, so u don't have to ask his permission for taking the mother-cat away to be sterilised & putting the kittens up for adoption ...

Huh??? The man who feeds the cats now complains and want them to be removed. AND he knows jolly well that they will be killed. Don't he have a heart??? Don't he feel for them, afterall he has been spending time and $$ feeding them?? :(

belle - the problem is that the caregiver who is helping isn't in this area and she can't take in the kittens. In addition, she said they look like they have an eye infection, which means they need fostering/caring for before they can be put up for adoption.

Anonymous - I have to say I asked the caregiver in disbelief, he KNOWS they're going to be killed right? I know people who can't be bothered if the cats are removed, but rarely have I encountered a feeder who actively ASKS for them to be taken away.

I have the same problem in a block of flats where there is an Indian family with cat food and water outside his flat but when told that cats who mess up on the staircase will be killed, he just shrugged his shoulders. I wish I could say ...he will be he will stop!!

2 merit points for feeding and 2,000,000 demerit points for getting the cats killed.

He lured the cats upstairs and then when items get knocked down, he ' chicken up ' and tried to be a good guy by calling TC to please his neighbour.

He is not a feeder but wanted some control and fun for himself. He has no feeings for kittens.
