Not nice.

There has been a significant number of cat abuse stories in the past year:

It’s 2019 and unfortunately, that’s not the end of it.

Dark-coloured liquid in feeding bowls

On Jan. 8, Rasyiqah Rosli, a community cat feeder, shared on Facebook community page Sayang Our Singapore’s Community Cats that she was doing her rounds when she saw two feeding bowls filled with unfamiliar contents.

This happened at 304 Tampines Street 32.

One had some 20-odd Enervon tablets while another was a mixture of water and a sachet full of cup noodle chilli sauce.

Filled with vitamins pills that cost S$39.90

For the uninitiated, Enervon is a brand of vitamin pills meant for human consumption.

These multivitamins can be easily bought from local pharmacies and cost S$39.90 for a bottle of 100 pills.

Abuser squeezed through narrow opening

Rasyiqah also mentioned that the cat feeders in Tampines have to take the effort to wedge the feeding bowls in between two old and rusty bicycles that “have not been used for years” so that the cats can have their meals in peace.

This also means that the culprit has to squeeze through the same narrow opening just to potentially abuse the cats.

“We have difficulty squeezing through every day and bump our heads on the bicycles, but this person really made an effort just to squeeze his or her idiotic self to pour these things.”

Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be an isolated case.

In an update, she shared that she found the same Enervon pills in another feeding bowl at Block 318.

She also added that some former senior citizens club members in the area complained that they have had their chairs and tables stolen.

It is unclear if the deed was committed by the same person.

Can be fined S$15,000

According to Rasyiqah, a police report has since been lodged.
Offenders guilty of animal cruelty will be liable to a fine of up to S$15,000 and/or a jail term of up to 18 months.
