Nearly always visit this market when in Bali. We have been looking to buy a rope cat as companion for our rope dog and always checked markets and stalls to no avail. Walked into Wake and lo, two rope cats. Pricy but we had to have one. Lovely workmanship by the artist and the ideal companion for the dog.
We were happy, happy until Perth airport. Bio Security wanted a look, the dog had been previously waved through. After much banging on the counter top, a tiny midge was dislodged. Shock, horror! Told it had to be confiscated or pay $100 to have it treated. I've got no problem with bio security but I wished that the same concern had been in evidence with passengers from the flight, no temperature checks, just handed two pages of information and waved through. Hopefully on our next Bali trip I can source a replacement cat.
