Typical does not mean it is the correct thing to do. Most people I know speed on the highway. It does not mean it is the correct thing to do. Most teens I have knows skip school from time to time. 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.
