The Singapore River is home to bronze sculptures of a Kucinta cat watching over its two kittens at Cavenagh Bridge. Initially, there were supposed to be 15 statues dedicated to this Singaporean breed of cats, but they became vandalised, defaced and even stolen, leaving only these three remaining today. The feline was adopted as Singapore’s tourism mascot in 1991, amidst controversial claims that the breed was not natural. Eventually, the small cheetah-like Kucinta was recognised as its own established breed and remains one of the rarest cats in the world.
