I've been talking to people about the catnapping case and also going through the reimbursements as well. I received a strange reimbursement with no name or return address and a note to call someone, whose number was not added. First of all, the claim forms have to be properly filled up. If they are not filled up, they will not be reimbursed. Often people do forget certain segments and if I can contact them, I will do so because it's a mistake. However if there is no identifying information, or the form is so indifferently filled out then it will not be reimbursed. I can understand that some areas are left blank but if ALL the fields are blank, then it's not helping us to get the information that we are trying to gather on different colonies which in turn is to help us get more information on sterilisation working. Secondly, I do find it strange that someone who is claiming money would instead of giving us all the relevant information, ask us to contact someone!
Sometimes it strikes me that when people are asking us for a favour, that instead of being appreciative, that they seem to think it is owed to them and that we should do all the work AND be grateful to be allowed to do the favour for them :)
