The cat in the flat: Singapore lifts ban on pets in public housing

Tommy is, without doubt, the head of his household. If he wants the air conditioning switched on, he simply glares at the unit on the wall. If he wants an early night, he’ll miaow for the TV to be silenced.

But, until now, he has been living in violation of a law that bans cats from much of Singapore’s housing.

This year, the 34-year ban will be overturned, allowing the city’s many fugitive cats to breathe a sigh of relief.


Under the new regulations, residents will be allowed to own up to two cats, as well as one dog of an approved breed, provided they complete a free online pet ownership course, and microchip and register their pets. Owners will need to “take reasonable steps” to protect their cats from hazards, such as installing mesh or grilles to prevent cats from roaming or falling from high rise windows.
