The incidents have happened in the Threewells Drive area throughout December and the Scottish SPCA has been made aware of five deaths and a further two more have been reported but with no details.
Acting chief inspector Alastair Adams, said: “All the cats showed symptoms of lacking co-ordination, vomiting, dilated eyes, dehydration, cold, lethargic and fitting. Most vets associate these symptoms with poisoning. Using poison, or any dangerous item, with the intent of deliberately harming animals is a crime and is enforceable by law. We would urge all pet owners to be vigilant in the Threewells Drive area.”
