Kitten cruelty in the market place
There is a wonderful cat friend in Wororot market. For many years Khun Dow has been rescuing cats from the dreadful cruelty inflicted on cats there. Poison is regularly put down at night to kill rats and cats. If kittens are found they are dumped in the big trash bins and left to die. It’s a sad fact that in some places, cats are just regarded as vermin and treated accordingly. Khun Dow has re-homed more than 30 cats and kittens, she’s had some cats sterilised and has taken a dozen to her home.
As Wororot is a regular dumping ground for unwanted cats and kittens, she often wonders what will be waiting for her at work each day. One morning there was a plastic bag waiting for her. Untying it, she was shocked to see three kittens inside. They were about a month old and didn’t look good at all.
She rushed them to the vet clinic where one was confirmed dead with a broken neck. One had a broken back, one was unharmed. The kitten with the broken back received intensive treatment, but sadly, 4 days later she died at the clinic.
The healthy kitten was brought straight to our shelter where she’s receiving lots of love and fuss. We can only imagine what had been done to them, such cruelty inflicted on such tiny kittens. The vet said the injuries suggested the kittens may have been thrown against a wall in an effort to kill them. Perhaps they were left for dead and a kind hearted person dropped them anonymously at Kn Dows stall.
Now Pear is looking for a kind person to adopt her and give her the loving care she needs. She loves to play with the other kittens at our shelter and we would recommend that you adopt a friend with her for company.
Since Khun Dow connected with Santisook Cat rescue she has been able to borrow humane cat traps to trap and sterilise many cats and older kittens. Some have been removed to a cat friendly temple with the abbots permission, and Kn Dow will continue to provide food for them there. Santisook is working hard to find a permanent solution to the Wororot market problem.
