Mrs Bates was an elderly woman who lived a few doors down from Dave Aitkin and his mother, at number 35.
On a Sunday in June 1989, a Kitling rummaged through her garden. She opened her window and said "shoo" to scare it away, but was scared by its red eyes.
Later that day, in an attempt to catch the Kitling, the Seventh Doctor laid out several cans of cat food and a slice of cheese on the sidewalk in front of her house. (TV: Survival, PROSE: Survival)
