The student said that all nine cats died after allegedly suffering from the same symptoms

They later discovered that all of the cats had been eating from the same bowl, which, upon closer inspection, was found to contain both kibbles and rat poison.

Syafiq Aiman, a student at the university, told MalaysiaGazette that this was not the first time such an incident occurred at UUM.

"Actually, a similar case happened a few years ago but it wasn't as bad as this," he said.

Following the discovery of nine dead cats, another feline was found convulsing on the ground before dying on the evening of Wednesday.

After suffering for a few minutes, the cat eventually died.

"Oh my God, these cats were all well taken care of there. Who would be so cruel to poison them?" one user asked.

Another user shared photos of the cats accompanying them while they were living at the hostel.

"Rest in peace (RIP) Mitam, Abang, and Oyeng. Please pray for me, I will miss you. Thank you for always accompanying me when I'm alone in my room. I'm sorry, dear. This world is just too cruel for you guys," they wrote.
