How rude of me to think that cat owners should show some sort of consideration for the people who live around them.
Contrary to Mr Scheltema’s belief, I am a very happy, respectful person. I just wish cat owners could accept that respect is a two-way street.
My apologies to Mr Scheltema and cat owners.
As I predicted, it appears cat owners believe that the community should respect them and their vermin and that is as far as it goes.
In future, I shall keep my mouth shut and shall consider dealing with the problem with vermin traps or other means.
Should I be charged for any missing cats I shall be sure to tell the judge that I tried, but asking cat owners to be responsible for their pets was far too much to ask.
