Abandonment - yes you CAN file a report
I managed to speak with the Investigating Officer at the Tanglin Police Station who apologised and said it should not happen again. I sincerely hope that they will be better able to handle abandonment issues. The I/O said that everyone does of course have the right to lodge a report as a crime has clearly been committed if there is a case of abandonment.
One of our volunteers just called to say she found a blind cat which was abandoned some weeks. Someone tossed it out when it was ill, and she thinks it's suddenly gone completely blind because it looked alright when she last saw it two weeks ago. She mentioned that it looks like it has really gone to seed.
