Kitty-litter removed

Oh no! Someone came and removed all the kitty-litter on the pad! For the last few years, Murdoch couldn't be bothered to pay attention to this piece of property, but now that there was a partial solution to the problem, somebody got motivated to start cleaning and they removed the solution! I wonder if it's possible to source some used kitty litter somewhere.
*Update* We did actually find some used kitty-litter to put down, but it was so gross, we couldn't bring ourselves to do it.

Kitty litter and acousta-seal

This has been an incredibly rare sight. Ever since the kitty litter was put down on the pad, there has been almost no one drinking here. It's been wonderful! Only twice have I ever seen anybody sitting on the stuff. And the acousta-seal on the fence (the black goopy stuff you see on the brown fence boards) seems to be doing wonders as well. We're really happy with how things have been quieter lately. There are still people who will stand around and drink back there, but not as many, and they don't stay around as long.

Who owns this place anyway?

Lately I've noticed that the drinkers have gained a real sense of ownership of the City Oasis dumpster pad. Whenever we try anything to prevent them from drinking between our buildings, they get angry specifically at us. I understand that Murdoch Management has allowed them to sit here for a few years without incident, and that they have learned that they come to no harm here, there is no resistance to them coming here to drink. This is the first wrong that has been committed by the property management. This sense of ownership that I'm feeling from the drinkers is really upsetting. The belief that these drinkers have that they deserve to be able to drink here, to take up residence on both of our properties, and that we are the offenders when we try to protect our property, this is the second wrong that has been committed. I'm not even sure if I can put my finger on exactly why this is so upsetting... but it is! This sense of ownership is just really wrong! It's for these reasons that our property is at risk, our people are at risk, and our business is at risk. It's for all these reasons that I continue to fight against this stuff, and I am continuing to draw upon any resources that I can find. If anyone has any more ideas for me, please email me!

Kitty litter

It seems someone else has also taken offense at the patrons of the pad. We found the ledge covered in used kitty litter, which I think is an awesome idea, and I think it'll be really effective. I think it's interesting that someone has compiled this much used kitty litter, and it makes me wonder what sort of person this is who has so much used kitty litter to spare... anyway, I do appreciate the effect it has on the pad, I really think it's helped to keep down the traffic there over the last couple of days. I'll try to post a picture here asap. For those who suspect that it was someone in our building who did this, nobody in our building has pets, the last one died a number of years ago.
