KUALA LUMPUR – Authorities raided the house of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Aliff Syukri Kamarzaman near Sungai Buloh yesterday morning, due to public complaints of his alleged abuse of his pet Savannah cat.
Sinar Harian reported that 15 officers from the Department of Veterinary Services Malaysia and the Selangor Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) took one hour to inspect the physical conditions of the cat named Dodi and his residence.
The officers told the D’Herbs Holdings Sdn Bhd founder that he should provide a better den for the cat, after the cat was left caged in his toilet.
“We advised Aliff to prepare a more comfortable cat mat and provide better air circulation for his cat,” an unnamed spokesman told Sinar Harian.
“We advised for him to apply for a pet passport so his cat can have a more systematic medical record,” he added, admitting that Aliff has the legitimate permit to buy the cat.
Aliff had previously said he is currently building a “house” just for the cat.
The officers also found that the cat’s size was bigger than normal, and advised Aliff to reduce its meal portion.
