Due to the state of the carcass, caregivers suspect that it had been beaten to death.

They have since reported the incident to the authorities and are appealing for witnesses.

Town Council cleaners have apparently since cleaned off the blood.

Speaking to MS News, Michelle said that the carcass had been discovered on Thursday morning at approximately 6.37am.

“The cat was found with injuries on the carcass and blood around it,” she said.

 

The Senior Manager at the Cat Welfare Society (CWS) assumes that the cat was a pet, or could have relocated from another area.

However, nobody has stepped up as the owner yet.

Caregivers appeal for witnesses

Following this unfortunate incident, CWS has put up flyers around the area to appeal for witnesses.

Some concerned individuals highlighted that this case comes at the heels of previous cases of cat abuse in the area. They questioned if the authorities are seriously looking into the matter.

In response to the comment, Michelle clarified that they’ve already arranged an appointment with the Town Council to do so.

In addition, the caregivers have alerted the Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS) and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). They have also filed a police report.

Michelle shared with MS News that an AVS investigating officer has received the report.

She also urged anyone with information to contact her via Facebook.

Hope caregivers will find more clarity

If the cat really died as a result of a cruel act like the caregivers suspect, we hope that the perpetrator will be brought to justice.

Late last year, a boy in Boon Lay threw a black community cat called Panther from the 22nd floor.

Panther died from the cruel act and the community mourned his death, rallying to seek justice.
