Cats in HK are very common in shops. Very rarely are they on a leash, even if the shop is located on a very busy street. Usually cats are just lazing around the shops, ignoring customers and being petted by their owners. I have seen them in coffee shops, garages, art galleries etc. People here love them. I’ve seen people feeding stray cats on hiking trails (almost every time on Mt.Parker Road in Quarry Bay) and in back alleys.
