SINGAPORE - Two more cats have been found dead in Yishun on Wednesday (Oct 25) morning, just a day after another cat's bloodied carcass was found in the northern town.

In a post on Wednesday afternoon, cat interest Facebook group Yishun 326 Tabby Cat said that two cats were found dead at blocks 133 and 134.

The two blocks are located in Yishun Street 11.

Two photos of each of the cats were included in the post, one which was white with ginger markings, and another cream coloured one.

According to the Facebook post, the white one with ginger markings "had a stab wound at the back", while the other was suspected to have "fallen from height".

Both felines were last seen around 9am that morning.

The group is appealing for information regarding the two cats, and have asked people to message them or call the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) hotline with any information.

In response to queries from The Straits Times, an AVA spokesman said the agency is investigating the death of the two cats.

The spokesman added that anyone with information on the case, such as photos, videos or witness accounts, can contact AVA's 24-hour hotline on 1800-476-1600.

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has also offered a reward to help solve the case.

"We are offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the person/s responsible for this act," the organisation said in a Facebook post on Wednesday evening.

Anyone with relevant information can call its 24-hour hotline at 6287-5355 and press extension number 9, or send an e-mail to inspector@spca.org.sg
