While on a guided tour of a cemetery, the tour guide was momentarily distracted by a cat. She then explained that they often see cats, due to the amount of wildlife they can catch in an otherwise urban area.
The stray cat they had previously sort of adopted was sadly run over. After I asked, it was admitted that it was was quietly buried in corner of the otherwise very very expensive plots - "staff privilege".
I was going to send an email to a visitor query which was a flat out "We don't have an official position on this, but No".
Instead I have sent an email which is "Here are all the reasons why it could negatively impact on your visit, and on other visitors, the ball is however, in your court."
I'm not sure if that was actually the crueler email to send.
Because they now could do the thing they want to do, but will have to admit that they are knowingly potentially having a negative impact of the fun of others.
In other words "How much of a twunt do you want to be?"
