(CNN)   "Private jet for your pet" may sound glamorous, but for some Hong Kong animal owners, it's just the cost of trying to leave   (cnn.com) divider line

I'm not sure how it is now, but around the late 90's your pets needed a two month quarantine to come over, which we did. Coming back, it was a one month quarantine if you had vet records. We had two cats who managed to fly from the US to China back to the US over a three year period, but there was always a quarantine period.

If I could have hired a private jet and avoided all that? Yeah, I'd do it.

Ar least it's easy to get money out now with bitcoin. Back when my last girlfriend left, she had to hide diamonds on top of a tampon.

From the "strange jobs you didnt know existed" file.

When i was working at the airport I met a guy who made a living flying place to place in his lil piper seneca carrying prize winning show-dogs to various parts of the country to perform their "stud services" .

Mrs Shirley and I have frequently talked about getting out of the US, when things get uncomfortable.
First choice would be driving the Canada (she's a citizen). No problem (except for the freedom convoy numbnuts).
Next would be flying to Euroland (I'm a citizen). Yeah naw. I'm not going to fly my dogs. No matter what airline. I'd much rather book a cruise from NY to Hamburg in 4th class so I can be around my pups.
There are currently 13 of them, so flying would be a no-go anyway.
However, if there's a private jet company that would take just us and our pups, name your price.

I await TikTok footage of drunk, vaping dogs.

But in 2022 Hong Kong, it's just as likely to be a regular person looking into this very unusual expense.

Meanwhile, "regular" poor people in Hong Kong.

"Hong Kong has some of the world's strictest Covid policies. Nearly all non-residents are barred from entering the city, while locals who leave and then come back are subject to three-week quarantines, which can be in expensive hotels or at government quarantine facilities -- even if they test negative for the virus multiple time

As a result, some 40% of expats polled in 2021 said that they were considering leaving the city for good and permanently relocating themselves and their families elsewhere."

I'm sure it's that, and not Mainland China's continued crackdowns on democracy in Hong Kong.
