A few months ago we went to Wat Doi Tam to help the monks with the ever-growing cat problem. At that time we removed 17 cats for sterilisation and 6 cats for medical care. We left about 6 pregnant cats there, and plenty of food for them. This visit we wanted to pick up the kittens, and trap the mothers before they have the chance to get pregnant again. A cat can be ready to mate again just weeks after her kittens are born. It’s a small window of opportunity for us to pick them up and get them sterilised. ( 695 Views)
Fluke was spotted by our cat friend Meena hobbling around the food stalls outside Payap University. He was skinny, dirty and being shoo’d away by stall holders. Meena could see there was something wrong with his leg, but didn’t know what, it was in such an odd position. A stall owner told her that Fluke was an old dog who’d been dumped there ‘a long time ago’. She had no idea what was wrong with his leg, but she occasionally fed him.
Meena called Santisook and Fluke was taken straight to the vet clinic. The vet said that Fluke had probably been hit by a car or beaten about a year ago, his leg and shoulder had been broken and had set in this awkward position. It’s too late for any type of surgery now. He also had 14 wounds on his body, some open, some partly healed. He lies down to sleep on his injured leg, on the open sores. ( 1091 Views)
Fantastic Happy Birthday Celebration!
Thank you so much for your wonderful care and kindness!
To celebrate her birthday, Nattawadee, along with Sirasophon, decided to treat the dogs at our shelter in Sanpatong. They arrived with gifts of dog food, cat food and medical supplies. Then stayed a while to pet the dogs and talk with volunteers about the work we do here. Happy Birthday Nattawadee!

One Buddha day in February a local woman had set up her hot food stall for visitors to Doi Tam Temple. A very enthusiastic young female cat from the temple was hanging out nearby waiting for scraps. But on this day, instead of throwing scraps, the woman scooped up a ladle full of boiling oil and threw it over the cat.
The cats screams alerted every one in the temple. The cat jumped into a fish pond and was dragged out by her owner, Pla Bird. He wrapped her in a towel and called Fon who dropped everything and rushed to the Temple. ( 953 Views)
While visiting Bangkok, our cat friend Meena saw youths playing very roughly with tiny kittens. Locals asked Meena if she could take the kittens away for safety, one kitten was already injured. Closer examination revealed that her eyes had actually been poked out!
Meena collected up the whole family and sent them up to Fon at our cat shelter in Doi Saket.
The blinded kitten, named Nam Pang (Honey Bee) was about half the size of her sibling. Unable to find her mother, she rarely got to the milk. Left with her owner, she was destined for a very slow death. ( 936 Views)

These kittens were left in a tissue box in the gutter outside a Temple. Luckily, Khun Plar who is building our new cat rescue shelter, found them. They are just a few days old.
Any other time he would have walked away, knowing there was nothing he could do for such tiny kittens. But fortunately, a few days of working with Fon has shown him that there’s now hope for abandoned kittens like this. He tucked them into his bag and headed for the new shelter. ( 767 Views)
