On 28 November, the Swedish committee, since its inception during the summer of 2009 under the leadership of county governor Eva Eriksson, delivered its final report – SOU 2011:75 (SOU = Official Reports of the Swedish Government). This 1100-page document calls for the government to among other things:
The County Administrative Board (Länsstyrelsen)… and my cats
The authorities must love me for some reason. During the first week of August of 2010, my half-sister dumped her cats on me since she was going to be ‘preoccupied’ during the next couple of months. I like cats, so that’s no problem – I get her litter box and buy some cat food and sand, expecting care-free temporary ownership of these cats, cuddling them a bit now and then and keeping them fed. I don’t like having my night’s sleep disturbed, however, so when I go to bed I lure them outside and place the food bowls there, then locking the balcony door. My apartment is on the ground floor, and the cats can run out freely through a hole in the balcony, hence it seems just fine in my eyes. Sometimes the cat meow a little when I leave them outside, but I figure this might be a good opportunity for them to go catch rats or something.
