Complaint about 'too many' cats
I managed to speak to the officer and he mentioned that there were too many cats in his estate - he said there were 10 or more and this was over 10 blocks. He also kept mentioning there were hygiene issues and that the cats were running in the void decks.
Firstly, the caregiver said there have always been cats - and she just sterilised the existing ones. The actual number is also closer to 20. The caregiver said that there were not just 2 cats as the officer claimed there were previously (and I seriously doubt that too). She also said that the cats come out at night to feed but otherwise disperse - and that's why she didn't think it was an issue.
Secondly I pointed out that the hygiene issue is the usual situation of cats going upstairs. We need to solve the issue by tackling the actual situation - not just picking up the wrong cats.
The officer asked if the cats could be moved to a cat farm - he had heard there were farms in Pasir Ris. I explained the vacuum effect, which he said that he understood, but then he kept saying that new cats might come in if the cats were sterilised. At any rate, he's agreed to monitor the situation for now - and hopefully will work with the caregiver. He's asked for her number.
