Cats in HDB flats
I just got off the phone with a woman who had a complaint lodged against her and the HDB came to her home and then sent her an official letter asking her to remove the cats. She had been feeding a community cat outside her flat, which I suspect is what made someone complain in the first place.
She went to see the MP last night and according to her, her MP was sympathetic but told her that there was not much he could do. He said he knew a lot of people kept cats, but that she must have had a complaint lodged against her. He said that often if there were no complaints, then people kept cats quite happily with no problems.
She mentioned what a nice man he was. He offered to write her a letter, but said that it might get her into more trouble as this would be akin to admitting she had cats at home. It's a shame. It seems from stories people tell me that many MPs are quite sympathetic about keeping cats in flats and even so, people still cannot do so.
