I have to report that feral/stray/unkempt cats are posing an increasing nuisance on THP site. It transpires that past tenants, have taken in cats, then left them to the new occupier to look after.
We have even had reports of cats attacking owners!
I am again appealing to all owners, to ensure that your own cat is collared, and toilet arrangements for them are inside your property. Your tenant – if you have one – should be notified to this effect, and asked NOT to feed stray or inherited cats, unless they are prepared to look after them in the correct way.
We are still seeking an operative who will come and collect cats which have no collars, or are known strays, and dispose of them offsite.
I appeal to all owners to pay attention to this problem – especially if your house is occupied by tenants.
