Human rights advocate M Ravi shared in his Facebook on 14 Jan that a community cat in Bishan, which he was contemplating to adopt had been brutally killed. Mr Ravi said that he was heartbroken by the cat’s death and that the cat had lived in the neighbourhood for over 7 years.

“Her five nails had been pulled out and strewn across the floor,” Mr ravi described the attack on the cat.
Mr Ravi however clarified yesterday that the cat which he had christened Ricco is still alive and not killed as he was previously made to believe.

The Cat Welfare Society informed him yesterday (16 Jan) that Ricco was picked up and treated by SPCA and has been released to the community cat’s caregiver. Mr Ravi expressed relief that the cat was not killed. I just spoke to auntie Lily . I will personally check on Ricco after work tomorrow.

He had earlier stated that he intends to challenge HDB’s rule which prevents HDB flat owners from adopting cats. In late December, Mr Ravi had highlighted that Ricco’s life may be in danger because of the practice of curbing the pigeon population in the area (poisoned bread which is used to curb pigeon population is often eaten by other animals as well).
