A Telok Blangah resident was heartbroken to find one of the area's community cats with a bloody wound on its body.

The Stomper shared with Stomp photos she took of the cat's injury on Feb 16.

"There were two circular holes and some blood," she said.

"The diameter is like a twenty-cent coin.

"The next day, there were more on the same spot of his body, deeper and also round, cumulating into a much bigger wound.

"It did not stop bleeding and he was rescued by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

"I think these circular wounds look like they came from an airgun.

"I hope it will raise public concern and deter abusers.

"It hurts me a lot to see this."

In response to a Stomp query, SPCA's executive director, Ms Aarthi Sankar said: "The SPCA had attended to the cat on 16th February.

"The cat has been seen by our Community Animal Clinic.

"Our vets have examined the cat and the wound appears consistent with a bite injury from another animal."
