Dog Bowl

Dog Bowl, originally uploaded by dawnkua.

I'm in the US at the moment and what I like is that a lot of stores and restaurants leave water bowls out for the dogs. If you can see the reflection in the sign, it says that they only allow four legged solicitors :)

Wow, imagine if Singapore turns into a Society where everywhere you turn, you see water bowls left out for the cats.

If everyone could take care heart the welfare of the enviornment, the homeless, we'll be seeing clean streets, more healthy cats/dogs here. For someone thats not been here before, i think its really unimaginable to see *FIRST WORLD* Singapore treating the least fortunate this way.

There is always this gahmen's fear that any official sign of approval for caregiving of cats...everybody will start feeding cats!
There is also a fear that if HDB allows cats, everyone will start to keep cats.
This sounds a very personal bias is the shaping of policy to improve animal welfarism. I am sure some HDB officers can see how ridiculous the reasons of disallowing cats but what can they do if the HEAD won't change his attitude!
Similarly town councils refuse to act on AVA's support of sterilisation and in fact offer reimbursemen of fund for sterilisation because it means approval of cat management. Caregivers are afraid to ask for more, preferring instead to be happy if the town council leaves the tipped ears alone.
