Salina writes how she had rushed home from work after receiving a call from her uncle who found Cantik inside a box which was left outside their home in Kuala Lumpur.
Did you know that she was pregnant? My cat never poops or pee or even hangs out at our neighbour’s house. After you did this, you put her back at my house. What satisfaction did you get out of this, you devil?thesalsss via Twitter.
Speaking to Harian Metro, Salina said that all she could do was cry when she found her pet in such condition.
From what I can tell, Cantik’s paws were possibly broken or ripped off its body by the culprit, not dismembered by something sharp. What’s heartbreaking is that there was excrement coming out of her showing the pain she endured from being tortured alive.Salina via Harian Metro.
Cantik’s death was subsequently reported to the police and the Department Of Veterinary Services Malaysia (VSM).
Netizens were seen sharing their grief and condolences to Salina and her family.
