It does not mean it is the right thing to do. Go into ghetto areas. Many people are in gangs. Does that mean it is OK since most people are in them?

One thing that does not change from country to country is that people should respect one another and IMO that means not breaking rules that would inconvenience others just for my own convenience.

If you have a cat then you should not move into a place that has a no cat rule. If you already live in a place that has a no cat rule then you should not get a cat until you no longer live there. There is really no reason to put your neighbors out.

Like I said GB, life sometimes dictates your actions. And I hardly think not having to put down animals is for my convenience! Right and wrong is the black and white point I already mentioned.

I know I am morally in the right with my actions irrespective of the bylaws - and my neighbours are not inconvenienced by my actions one iota. Breaking bylaws and putting neighbours out are two separate items it is not guaranteed that one will follow the other - either direction.

But this is becoming pointless, so I will bow out now.

I am not really sure why you think the only option is putting the animal down. You could move. That is another option. You just don't want to because that is not convenient. And I hardly see how you can know for sure that no neighbors are inconvenienced. Not to mention the next person who lives in your living space or what about one of your neighbors who moves out and a new member moves in?
