A Secondary One cat-caregiver speaks up for a homeless cat, Spot, who died on 25 Apr from a still at-large cruel assailant.
"I agree with Ms Lynn Lam in her letter, "Cat-killings still a problem" (May 8).
"... we need the police and people to take firmer action in animal killings.
"On April 25, I found Spot — a cat that we fed — with bad internal and external injuries. He was fine when I saw him the night before at 11.15.
"When I called the police, without asking any questions, the officer told me to call the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
"I expected him to take action, but he didn't. So, I took Spot to the SPCA. On the way, Spot died.
"People complain about the feeding of stray cats because of the mess left behind. They complain to the authorities when stray cats walk past or enter their houses. But they don't report it when cats get bullied, harmed or killed. (calsifer's note: refer to TNRM 101 for details on the kind of things that people complain against cats for)
