    Where to take abandoned cats?

    Cutting a long and rather boring story short: A co-worker left and did not take three cats. They having been hanging at mine but they really don't go with my lifestyle. I don't plan on staying here forever so they really need a forever home. Is there such a thing as a shelter here in Thailand. What about the temple, I can imagine it's a bit grim. The cats are lovely, so they will make decent pets.

    Put them in a box. Drive 30km out of town and release them. They'll find a new home for themselves.

    There was a poster called Stroller who ran a sanctuary for abandoned cats and dogs called 'Chez Stroller' ... or something!

    Not sure if he is back under another nic.

    Sanctuary indeed...

    Strolls was fattening them up to consume/sell later.

    Yet, in close knit Wat communities cats are almost always allowed to wonder freely amongst the commons and living quarters, being fed first - where dogs are left to fend for themselves on handouts.

    A more instinctive manner in which felines are looked upon in Thailand [and throughout Asia largely] compared to dogs.

    You're lucky, at least you won't get toxoplasmosis from them for getting too close.

    Cats are disease carrying vermin.

    Not the sharpest tool in the proverbial shed are you there "ENT"?

    Can I "catch" toxoplasmosis from my cat?

    Because cats only shed the organism for a few days in their entire life, the chance of human exposure is small. Owning a cat does not mean you will be infected with the disease. It is unlikely that you would be exposed to the parasite by touching an infected cat, because cats usually do not carry the parasite on their fur. It is also unlikely that you can become infected through cat bites or scratches.

    In the United States, people are much more likely to become infected through eating raw meat and unwashed fruits and vegetables than from handling cat feces.
    Google is your friend, learn how to use it!!!

    Take a page out of your own book, dipshit.

    A random unreferenced quote you dragged out from somewhere doesn't prove your point.

    "Toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by the parasite Toxoplasma gondii, which can be found in garden soil and raw meat. Cats can get toxoplasma infection by killing and eating infected prey. The disease can also be passed on from cats to humans.

    Probably because Thais see a dog as something that is from a previous life who was a bad person. So a cat gets a higher status rating.

    What happened to the good old days of My youth.
    Men would bundle kittens into a hessian sack and throw them into a river to drown.

    A Hindu friend reckoned that dogs were re-incarnated thieves.

    One dog I knew in Cornwall always picked up stones from the cliff base at Polperro, carried them home in his mouth to his kennel in the car port, then laid these stones in a row around the kennel, placing some one on top of the other, quite neatly, like a little stone wall.

    We reckoned that he was a re-incarnated rubble wall builder who stole his neighbours stones, so...

    Another dog called Skipper forever rolled a couple of cannon balls up and down a path on Looe Island, Cornwall. The cannon balls reputedly came from one of Napoleon's ships as it passed up the English Channel and fired at the old mansion on the island, hitting one corner, otherwise no damage.

    Locals reckoned he was a re-incarnated French soldier/sailor off the boat wanting to retrieve the cannon balls.

    Cat Braisé

    1 cat cut in serving-sized pieces dusted in flour with salt and pepper
    1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
    6 artichokes
    2 1/4" thick slices of slab bacon, diced
    1 small sweet onion, diced
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 carrot, diced
    1 lemon
    3 small tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced
    1/2 c. dry white wine
    2-4 c. homemade chicken broth
    garni of 4 flat parsley stems, 6 leafy thyme branches, 1 bay leaf tied up with kitchen twine Salt and pepper
    1/4 c chopped flat-leaf parsley (optional)

    Snap the leaves off the artichokes until only the tender inner leaves remain. Snap off the stem. Trim the remaining green bits from the bottom of the artichoke, and cut off the inner leaves in a bunch at the point where they are very tender. Pare the tough green outer layer off the remaining stem, pairing the stem into a point. Now cut the artichoke bottom into quarters and remove the choke with a sharp knife from each quarter. Rinse to remove any traces of foin ("hay") and drop them into a bowl of water acidulated with the juice of half a lemon.
    Heat 2 T olive oil in a large heavy casserole or Dutch oven. Dredge the cat pieces in seasoned flour, shaking off excess. Brown over medium heat, turning regularly, until golden on all sides. Remove cat pieces to a plate and dump any oil remaining in the pan. Add 1 T of the remaining oil and the bacon dice. (Omit bacon if you only have access to the thin-sliced vacuum packed supermarket variety.) Sauté until cooked but not "crisp". Add the remaining T of oil and the onion and carrot. Saute for 5 minutes, then add the artichoke quarters and the garlic, stir one minute, and add the tomatoes and the white wine. Turn up the heat and reduce until syrupy, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes. Lay the bouquet garni on top of the vegetables. Arrange the cat pieces on top, together with any juice accumulated in the plate.
    Pour in enough broth to come halfway up the sides of the cat pieces. Cover and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer over very low heat about 1 hour or cook in the oven at 350 degrees for the same amount of time. The cat should be just tender and part readily from the bone. Don't overcook or it will become dry. Check the liquid level frequently and add more broth if necessary. Turn the cat pieces once.
    When done, remove the cat pieces to a warm platter and arrange the vegetables, removed with a slotted spoon, around them. Cover and keep warm. Strain the remaining pan juices into a smaller saucepan and reduce over high heat, skimming frequently, until reduced by 1/3. Pour over the platter and serve immediately. Sprinkle with finely chopped flat-leaf parsley if you like.
    Braised Cat


    Enjoy.

    Same here. My mother's cat urinated in my briefcase once. Loaded it up in the trunk and drove it out of town and dumped it. If you have ever been to the Colosseum in Rome the place is overrun with cats. Pidgeons would have to be up with cats on my hate list too.

    I made up some spray for the cats around the place.

    1 tspn chili powder steeped in a cup of hot water for an hour or so.

    1 tspn ground pepper in a cup of hot water steeped 1 hour or so.

    Stir, then filter the resultant liquids into a suitable small (4-5 inches high) container to which a kitchen cleaner dispenser spray cap may be fitted.

    ( You know the ones, usually spray bleach or some such around the place, has a thin plastic tube sticking out of the base of the screw on cap thereof, and a squeeze handle).

    Cut the tube down to size, screw the cap with tube onto the bottle of chili/pepper liquid mix, and BINGO, you have your own home made pepper spray, all legal, good for cats and dogs and nasty young hoodlums.

    Perfectly legal as self defense or combating vermin.

    Rats hate it too, so do snakes and mosquitos.

    Using a small fine spray nozzled bottle, like a perfume dispenser, it works great on mosquitos etc.
