These days, pets are treated as part of the family. When did this happen? The status of pets has improved. It has become a crime to commit acts of abuse against pets owned by others as well as your own pets.
This spirit of animal welfare is unfortunately not universal. Traveling in India, I often saw stray dogs being kicked and treated carelessly. In such areas, dogs were also dogs and did not become familiar with humans. People are the ones dogs should be wary of.
How is it in Indonesia? I often saw cats in this city. Jakarta is a city full of cats. If you go into a residential area, cats are lounging here and there. But they don't come close to me when I walk near them, and they don't seem to be interested in me. The cat I met in the alley is not looking at my camera, but somewhere else.
Cats seem to complete the world by being cats. However, there are many cats hanging out near food stalls, so I don't think they are being treated unkindly.
