"Madams", you have so much power and responsibility.
I am sure that there are some of you who use that power wisely, but I would like to discuss those of you who fail miserably in this regard.
At least once a week a 'problem' is brought to our attention that was caused by "Madam".

This time Madam gave 8 kittens to her foreign worker. EIGHT KITTENS!! How many people do you know who could afford to look after 8 cats? Now what if I tell you that this worker lived in a shack, rented in someone's yard?!

Now fast forward to a year later. Foreign worker has long since left his shack and left the kittens behind. Obviously the kittens are now fully grown and guess what happens next?!

Luckily for them a kind lady moved into the house and felt sorry for these starving cats. She fed them when and what she could afford..little milk and bits of meat. Suddenly one gives birth and she realizes that this has gone way beyond what she can cope with and she calls for help.

If only "Madam" had called for help with her 8 kittens, we wouldn't be sitting with this problem right now.
How the black cat survived that long is a mystery. Kind lady did say that people started questioning her when they saw her feed a black cat. The questioning went on to become allegations, but she brushed them off...

Back to "Madam", I bet you are one of those ladies who loudly state how all the (welfare) problems come from the townships...
