Cats cannot be made to stay indoors?
HDB officers I noticed still trot out this reason from time to time - like the email this afternoon.
Now if you leave the door open, anything can run out - a dog, a rabbit, or even a toddler. No one blames a toddler for example, nor should they. It is not the child's fault - nor is it the cat's. If a child runs out or causes a nuisance, people will look to the parents, not the child - so why is it when a cat runs out, people say that cats are the ones to blame? It boggles my mind.
Off to drop off Spay day posters at the vets.
