A woman and her son were caught on video attempting to abandon kittens at Haig Road on Nov 16.
A Stomper alerted Stomp to the incident that was posted on Sayang Our Singapore's Community Cats' Facebook page.
Facebook user Sharon Ong shared that a woman 'instigated' her son to dump a carrier holding three to four kittens at Haig Road.
"When confronted, she said it is not them, but everything is recorded," said Sharon.

She said although the woman took back the kittens, she was concerned that the woman would dump the cats somewhere else.
According to the Stomper, three kittens were 'coincidentally' found at Joo Chiat Complex's bin centre.
Sharon posted an update in the comments stating that she and her fellow feeders found the kittens and that they are safe and being fostered by a 'kind lady'.
She added that she posted the incident for awareness and that pet abandonment is a crime.
Abandonment is a serious offence under the Animals and Birds Act and those found guilty of pet abandonment can be fined up to $10,000, jailed for up to 12 months, or both.
