Motherless Kittens Need a Home


Recommended Posts

I live in a large apartment building in Chiang Mai. For some time a female cat lived around the building. She had three kittens about three or four months ago. This mother cat recently became ill and died. I have been feeding the kittens dry food to keep them alive until a place can be found for them to live. The manager of the building does not want them here, so I have been trying to find someplace where they can go. I tried Santisook Animal Shelter, but they cannot accept any more cats. Another agency, called Adopt Me-Ow Chiang Mai, takes only newborn kittens for placement. I wonder if any readers know of any other animal shelter or organization in Chiang Mai that can take these three small kittens. Any information would be greatly appreciated, not only by me and the manager of my building but also by three very cute kittens who desperately need an agreeable place to call home.

Wow...  really????....  but I’m still curious how someone could make such a hyperbolic interpretation from a rather harmless and simple comment....     Stay away from the cat litter I think.

I had a similar problem once...a lady and her children all sporting teeth filed to a point...took them all.   Some people really like cats!

If so, it is an utterly sick, idiotic, and meaningless response. I suppose it's a pathetic attempt at humor. I hope you don't make your living by writing comedy material because if you do you'll be the one eating cats and anything else you can catch for lack of any financial resources to buy food.


How on Earth did you interpret what @Puchaiyank wrote in that way?

He was clearly saying that he took in a female cat and her kittens, and that he really likes cats.

No one said anything about eating cats.

It can be truly disturbing to accidentally get an insight into someone's mind.

Donnacha-- Did he clearly say that he took in the cats? He didn't say that at all. I read it as a lady and her children with pointed teeth took them. If the lady is the mother cat and her children are the kittens, then you're right, I did totally misinterpret what he said. Understandably enough, in light of the fact that cats are not ladies and kittens are not children. If he wanted to say that he took in the cats, he could have said exactly that. In any event, my post was seeking information about a place I could take the kittens to live. His response could not have been more irrelevant and unhelpful.

What a boring language English would be if people didn't communicate with playfulness and flair.

I certainly appreciate imagination and flair in English or any other language. I believe, however, that the essential function of language is to clearly communicate one's thoughts to another, which Puchaiyank did not do. If he, in fact, did take in a family of homeless cats then I commend him. He is a fellow animal lover. If I weren't an animal lover I wouldn't be doing all I'm doing to help these kittens, including incurring the wrath of my building's manager. I live in a small apartment and, therefore, cannot manage to care for one or more kittens. A more pertinent and helpful response would involve information as to where I can take these cats, which was what my original post requested.

I take a powerful pain medication, called Lyrica, for nerve damage. It's likely that the Lyrica impairs my judgement even more than the cat litter. Mixing the two makes it even worse.

What's wrong with eating cat meat?

 

recipes and facts

 

The recipes are really good, people in Guangdong eat 10,000 cats per day.

 

OP, let me know on Friday afternoon if you haven't found a suitable home. 

Thanks very much for your reply. I'll be checking more this week and get back to you Friday.

Sorry to hear that, and I do understand that you are trying to do your best for these cats.

Are you aware of Toxoplasmosis? It is a brain parasite that is extremely common in cats that have not yet had all the necessary shots. Humans become infected by handling such cats or living around them. It causes detrimental changes in behavior and sometimes damages eyesight. There is not much doctors can do to treat it, and it is extremely common in Thailand.

Unless you are certain that all these cats have received all their shots, handle them with extreme care, wash your hands after touching them, and don't allow them to wander around your living area. Take particular care when bagging the used litter.

I only mention this because you may not be aware, and could probably do without any further medical problems in your life.

Thanks very much for the information. I hadn't thought about these issues at all. They are essentially feral cats, living outside around the building and in the parking lot. I just give them Whiskas dry food and pet them a bit when they come to eat. They haven't been to a vet, and they don't come inside the building or use a litter box. I'll exercise a great deal more caution in the future when being around them.
