Meowww meowww meowwwww On a daily basis, I hear this intermittently meowing sound few floors below from our unit … We live in a condo building with Pet Restriction policy. Or, is there (really) one? In Thailand, many condominium buildings have a “No Pets Allowed” policy, but (perhaps) not strictly enforced. Just like the one we live in: no pets, but tenants were seen sneaking their pet in our condo building. I wouldn’t be surprised if our condo Juristic Person and staff have encountered these sneaky tenants, but turned a blind eye and just allow pets into our condo. This is Thailand after all: rules everywhere but mostly ignored and few are ever enforced.
What baffles me most though is the existence of a resident cat, living in our condo building premises .. but mind you, just within the compound; not inside the building.
The cat is really popular ..
She even has her own food bowl. Not 1. Not 2. But 3. Yes, oh yes … 3 food bowls for our resident-cat-in-a-no-pets-allowed condo.
There was even a notice put up with regards to cat feeding. So, is this a “no pets allowed” condo, or not?
While I am not exactly a pet person or even an animal person, I do empathize with pet owners to a certain extent … I guess, so long they keep their pets clean and not being a nuisance to others. A little bit of meowing is still alright. But, there was one incident whereby a couple put their dog on a swimming kickboard, and yes … in the swimming pool. Every dog sheds hair: I don’t want to get dog hair in my mouth when I swim! Not cool, man, not cool.
But well .. in Thailand, sometimes … Que sera, sera. Whatever will be, will be .. In KL, I live with my neighbour’s dog who barks intermittently every day, all day. In Bangkok, the cat rules with its meowing and wailing. You win some, you lose some ..
