Another cat found dead in Tampines

Another cat has been found dead at the foot of an HDB block in Tampines - the third case in the housing estate in five weeks.

The white cat was found at the foot of Block 889, Tampines Street 81, on Sunday morning.

A passer-by who found it called the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) at 9.40am, the society said.

Photos of the cat were circulated to animal and cat interest groups on Facebook.

SPCA's rescue officer arrived at the scene at 10.05am, but the cat was found dead.

The officer asked bystanders at the scene if they had seen anything, but there were no witnesses, SPCA said.

The member of public who made the call also knocked on the doors of residents in the block, but the cat's owner was not found, the society said.

A 25-year-old man believed to have been responsible for abusing and killing a cat at Block 884, Tampines Street 83, was arrested on May 31.
