In a comment, Yishun Cat Patrol tagged Speaker of Parliament Tan Chuan-Jin and the People’s Action Party Member of Parliament Louis Ng Kok Kwang (Nee Soon GRC), who is also the founder of Animals Concerns Research and Education Society (ACRES).

“Dear Sirs, We plead for your attention on this matter. We hope a thorough investigation can be conducted to identify the culprits, and we appeal for a stricter punishment for such animal murder and cruelty. Obviously, a small fine and being banned from having pets for 1 year is an absurd sentence (sic),” said Yishun Cat Patrol.

The case of a third kitten was highlighted in a comment.

“Remember a few days ago the case of the two kittens being thrown down at Yishun? I came across this comment saying another kitten with the same colour was found dead at the exact same spot yesterday (Apr 20),” wrote a concerned individual.

“Is there anything being done by the authorities to catch this serial cat killer?”
