Refusing to sterilise
I was just speaking with a woman who does not want the cats that she feeds to be sterilised. Someone had contacted us saying that he knew the woman, and wanted to get the cats there sterilised, because there were just too many of them - he sent me a photo of the area. However the woman just wasn't keen.
I spoke with her and reminded her we had met a few weeks ago. I told her that someone now had offered to sterilise the colony in another area she was feeding in. The woman kept refusing and saying she didn't want to do it. I pointed out that this was going to be done at no cost to her, nor would she have to lift a finger. She kept insisting that she didn't want it done, but alternated with saying she didn't care about these cats. She said that she just gave them some food, but they weren't hers. I asked her why she didn't want it done, and tried to explain the benefits of sterilisation but she just kept repeating that she didn't want it done but wasn't able to articulate why. She kept repeating that they weren't her cats. In the end, I told her that since they weren't her cats then she would not have any objections if they were sterilised since they weren't her colony anyway.
The person who wanted to get them done wanted to ask her permission first since they were her cats, but he also told me that she kept insisting that they weren't her cats or her colony and that she only fed them. In the end she said she could not object if they were taken to be sterilised.
