Dear Centerpoint: Are you aware of the amazing outpouring of anger directed at your company in the wake of "kitten-gate"? This story is all over the blogs/boards everywhere. I'm in Idaho and I heard about it, am outraged, and have sent an email to your Community Relations department for an explanation. Haven't had a response, but as one PR professional to another, it better be a good one. I'm afraid this story is not going to die peacefully...unlike the cat who likely fried instantly, this might just spark and smolder for a long time. I mean honestly, people wouldn't you rather have had a happy outcome for all concerned? And not allowed to turn the power off to get the cat off the pole....please. Of course you are not alone in blame here...HSPCA didn't do much either and their response to my comments to them was amazingly weak. I'd be proactive on this and figure out someway to look good...like maybe a public apology and a statement that you'll rethink your responses to such issues. And by the way, pointing a finger at the owner that her cat shouldn't be outside is a cop out....we don't know how the cat got out and it's pointless to speculate...we do know however that you did nothing, and the power went out anyway when the kitten fried, so someone had to climb the pole, fix the damage, and restore power to the neighborhood...so your decision got you where?
