Retiree fined $3,000 for setting fire to neighbor's cat
 
Khushwant Singh, The Asia News Network (The Straits Times) | Tue, 04/24/2012 2:28 PM
 
A 78-year-old was fined $3,000 on Tuesday for setting his neighbor’s Persian tabby on fire. Chua Tuang Seng was also ordered by a district court to pay $1,235 to the cat's owner as compensation for its treatment and hospitalization.
 
The seven-year-old tabby, named Ricco, survived but still bears scars of its injuries.
 
The retiree had pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to the cat belonging to Salman Mohd Aris. The secretary, 49, lives on the 12th-floor of a block of flats in Pasir Ris Drive.
 
He stays one floor below and at 1pm on Sept 3 last year, he was squirting kerosene around his plants placed along the corridor. This is to keep ants away from the potted plants.
 
Prosecuting officer Yap Teck Chuan of the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority told the court that Chua noticed Ricco hiding among the pots. The retiree recognized it as the feline that had been defecating outside his flat. He tried to shoo it off with a broom but it went to hide under pots placed on a low metal shelf.
 
To make it leave, Chua then squirted kerosene on Ricco. When it continued to hunker down under the shelf, the retiree lit a piece of newspaper with a match and threw it in the direction of the cat, which caught fire.
 
Some 15 minutes later, Salman's sister came looking for Ricco. She found the badly burnt pet among the potted plants outside Chua's flat. She carried it home and Salman called the police to report that her cat set alight by a neighbor.
 
Ricco was sent to Mt Pleasant Veterinary Centre in Changi for examination and then transferred to the Mt Pleasant Veterinary Centre in Whitley Road where it was hospitalized for four days. Treatment and hospitalization came up to $1,235.
