Factsheets for HDB estates on common problems

As I was writing the factsheet hopefully for the AVA to hand out when they loan out cat traps, it occurred to me that it might be useful to have a brochure for people in HDB estates detailing information that they can use to solve problems that they are facing - for example, cats defecating outside the door, etc. I know that some of the groups have come up with wonderful factsheets on their own explaining what a sterilised cat is and what is being done in terms of management in their estate.

It might however be good to have a factsheet that targets the complainants. Not all town councils are very good at extracting the necessary information needed to solve the problems - perhaps we should instead reach out to the complainants directly and make them aware of the situation. This might include the fact that if there is defecation outside your doorstep, chances are that it's NOT the community cat in the area. This might also perhaps allow us to reach the complainants who remain 'anonymous'.

I'm working on that factsheet now - the information to be added is quite different from the advice given to private home owners.

the flyer is an excellent idea but to know which households have the ava traps, could CWS also include some vouchers or gifts they could receive if they fill up the survey form. Of course not pet food as they are out to remove the animals but shopping discount vouchers for their survey particiation.

Hi Anonymous I think there might be some confusion here. The idea is for AVA itself to give out the brochures when they loan out the traps to people. We've broached the idea with them and the initial response was positive but we're waiting to hear more.
