The Singapore government is considering allowing cats in HDB flats, and Nee Soon MP Louis Ng shared the updates on his Facebook.
Ng said that he had been “pushing for this for more than a quarter of my life,’ campaigning for it in parliament and finding support from Speaker of Parliament Tan Chuan Jin and president of Singapore’s Law Society Adrian Tan.
Louis Ng’s Facebook statement
[ Allow cats in HDB? ]
I’ve been pushing this for more than a quarter of my life. Am SO SO SO glad the government is finally seriously reviewing and exploring allowing cats in HDB. Do share your views at: http://go.gov.sg/catsg (3 Sept – 2 Nov)
The government is also considering:
– Expanding the existing pet dog licensing and microchipping scheme to include pet cats.
– Extending the Trap-Neuter-Rehome/Release-Manage (TNRM) programme for free-roaming dogs to community cats.
– New engagement and outreach programmes to promote responsible cat ownership, the adoption of cats, and responsible caregiving for community cats.
It’s good news that so many of us have waited a long time for. Help spread the word
