Facebook user Andrea Chan reposted the video on her social media page and publicly called out the man. Revealing that she personally knows the man, Ms Chan claimed that the man is a cell leader at the City Harvest megachurch.

In a Facebook post published on Sunday (16 Aug), Ms Chan claimed that this is not the first the man could have been antagonistic to cats. She wrote: “A church cell leader of city harvest, I left your cell group because of how the rest of the members condone to your actions (up your volume to hear what they’re saying in the video). If this is your definition of fun, you really have issues.

“I was a cell member, hearing you joked in the past about how you’ve abused another cat by throwing something at it (not sure what item was it) to get rid of it, or even scaring the cat when it wasn’t doing anything to you. If no other members are going to voice up about your wrongdoings, then this isn’t the cell group I wish to be in.”

Ms Chan, an animal lover, asked what kind of example the man is setting for the members in his cell group and pointed out that he should respect all of God’s creations, including cats. She said that she is publicly calling out such acts because it is unacceptable even if it was a joke and added that she has highlighted the matter to the SPCA and NParks’ Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS).
