View Full Version : (Singapore) Cats are not allowed into flats

Where about 90% of the people in this small island live in government built flats called HDB flats, the official stand in the prohibition of cats is "We wish to explain that cats are not allowed to be kept in HDB flats as they are nomadic in nature and it is difficult to confine them to flats.
Cats can shed fur, dirty public places, make noise and cause disturbance.
Despite the prohibition on cats, HDB has been receiving from residents numerous complaints relating to cats.
As our priority is to promote a pleasant living environment and good relationships for all residents in our housing estates, HDB will maintain its existing policy on not allowing cats to be kept in the flats."
