Common sights you will not like

In the city and
on the road

You may see small domestic animals such as dogs and cats sometimes placed in cages and then left in a corridor without human companions. It is a common practice by some pet owners to prevent pets who are too active or not toilet trained from destroying the house. Abandonment of dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs is rare but can happen. In public housing, you may also see stray cats and dogs that are called community animals and taken care of by all. You might witness a higher percentage than in the West of dogs that are muzzled when in public. This is considered responsible pet ownership in Singapore.
