"How can you make me wait for so long? Why no one helped me when I stepped out of the autorickshaw with the cats?" asked Heeba from the staff, the trust claimed. They also alleged that before the cats could have been admitted, the staff asked her to complete some formalities, but she got agitated and started speaking ill of them.
Later, when she was asked to leave the clinic, she assaulted the staff and abused them, the complaint further added.
