What’s worse? Going hungry but free to chase rats in the street or being locked in a cage and fully fed by a crazy cat lady?
A house owner on Ramintra Road is pleading for help anonymously online after he realized his granny collected a total of 145 cats over the years and the family is suffering to pay THB60,000 each month to feed them all.
From 10 cats, the population of kitties doubled, tripled and so on within five years. Grandma, who has had a hard time caring for them, starting putting them in cages for their own safety. Some opposite-sex kitties share a cell and strike up a prison romance to produce more babies. Some of the cats have lived in a cage their entire life.
The grandson has had it, and he opened Facebook page Cat 145 and put the cats up for adoption and ask for donations.
“Now I have more than 100 cats in my house. I need to pay for cat’s food , cage and so on. It’s a big amount of money in each day,” he wrote. “If you would like to raise some cats, please contact me via this page or by the phone. [Also,] I’ll be grateful for your donation for food and cage.”
While donations might be an easier alternative, they would just continue the kitty misery. Better to find them some homes.
Netizens on Pantip suggested the family to ask for help from animal organizations to get them fixed and adopted. Aside from murder, cats love freedom, and caging them means torture.
