Another caregiver in my estate was given my number and called for advice because she started feeding 15 cats at her block and the nearby Bin-Center. Now the number has increased to 35 due to breeding and dumping. There are complaints and she worries that the cats will soon be rounded up.
She did sterilise some cats at first but then had stopped after these cats were rounded up…as her effort had been wasted. I explained to her that she needs to start sterilising again and the importance of letting her TC know what she is doing, explaining to them the benefit of TNRM…and also offering to look into complaints.
I was quite blunt telling her that by just feeding and not sterilising she enables them to breed more and causes more harm than good. There is no way that she can protect them unless she starts sterilising.
