Buying a pet in Singapore

Post by Nancy I » Wed, 04 Jan 2006 5:05 am

Hi,
We will be getting rid of a dog and cat before moving to Singapore. Since we will be living in an apartment, we would like to get another cat. Are there pet stores or certain parts of the city to go to to buy one? Thanks!

You sound like a real animal-lover, good for you.

I also believe that pets are only good for a short time, preferably post puppy/kitten stage.

Luckily for you, here in Asia, you can actually sell your pets to local restaurants when you're tired of them, they've been naughty or have simply become a nuisnace.

There is also a vibrant market for second-hand children here if you've had enough of them - they are your property to do with what you like, after all.

I'm glad you have a :) after your name, it suits your post nicely - welcome to our fair city.

Don't buy but adopt one. There was a story in the Chinese news about the local shelters. They are imploring the public to help adopt a pet. Due to irresponsible ownership, many poor pets end up in the shelter.

Chinese new year (year of dog) is coming up soon, if anyone think it is cool to get a pet dog, please do so responsibly. The dogs are not toys. They are like you and me, need plenty of TLC and are dependent on humans for survival.

Nancy seems to be quite a responsible and caring pet owner.

It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Sorry for giving unsolicitated advice. Just want to remind people out there and help the local SPCA get the word out. Doing my part for the animal community.
