Animal lovers are heartbroken after a beloved community cat was euthanised after it was allegedly abducted and beaten to the brink of death.

Stomper Kyle told Stomp that the cat was a popular resident cat at Block 79 JTC LaunchPad at Ayer Rajah Crescent.

It was last sighted on Jan 19 and eventually found beaten up in Clementi.

It was then reportedly euthanised on Jan 25 due to the severity of its injuries.

Kyle and other animal lovers are appealing for information to find out what happened.

The cat went by many names: Mackie, Kiffie, Larry and Duckie.

Kyle suggested it be called McKiffie Laduck.

"Many fans of McKiffie Laduck have been investigating on their own and there is a growing movement to find out what happened," she said.

"He was so beloved by the office crowd and Timbre+ lunch crowd.

"He is one of the most beloved cats in Singapore and on Cats of SG, he is known as NiamNiam Feifei.

"He and his friends were fed daily by community caregivers.

"He is a big star and everyone who loved him searched high and low every day until he was found beaten up in Clementi.

"We believe JTC CCTV can show who abducted him.

"We need the authorities to take concern and check the footage urgently."

Kyle also hopes that JTC management will take notice of this case and save and back up CCTV footage from January.

"We counted three cameras just around McKiffie Laduck's community home at the mailbox area," she said.

"Please do not delete.

"It is precious evidence for investigation purposes."

Kyle also shared with Stomp a video of several of McKiffie Laduck's fans gathered at a memorial set up for him at Ayer Rajah.

On top of that, a member of a cat interest group has set up a petition to appeal for information and to get justice for McKiffie Laduck's death.

To date, more than 2,500 people have signed it.

"It is not a small case to be forgotten," Kyle said.

Stomp has reached out to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) for more information.
