While most of the residents of the White Building have now left since the demolition started this week, many of the cats that lived in the building have been left behind by their owners.
While City Hall said the demolition of the building was to start once all the families had vacated, Kaeou and his grandmother were among five of the families who hung on in the famous old building.
Some demolition work started on Monday, but the site needs to be fenced off before the building is pulled down. The last of the 492 unit owners finally signed contracts to sell their properties last Friday.
A fence went up around the White Building as demolition began and the last few families prepared to leave.
Demolition begins today at the White Building, a Phnom Penh icon for over 50 years.
The iconic White Building, a visual representation of so many of the issues that face Cambodia, will soon disappear completely.
