The Sharjah Municipality has denied the accuracy of a video that showed a cat in a state of exhaustion at the emirate's birds and cattle market. The resident who shot the video claimed that the cat was fatigued as the air-conditioner at the shop was switched off.
A top official revealed that the said shop was inspected and it was found to be abiding by the rules.
Dr Amal Al Shamsi, director of public health at the Sharjah Municipality, denied the claims, stating that all shops at the market were "strictly adhering" to health standards and safety rules and regulations set by the civic body.
"The veterinary section of the Sharjah Municipality spares no efforts to ensure a healthy and safe environment for the pet animals at the market. In case we receive any complaints, we intervene immediately," Dr Al Shamsi said.
He added that there was an office of the municipality at the market which ensures all shops abide by the rules, including those related to proper ventilation and cleanliness. 
The official urged residents to report any violations to 993.
