March 21, 2022, WDT Rescue Team was informed that loud noises of cats and rotten smell came from a house number 74/3 in Pruksa Housing Compound, Srinakarin-Tepaluk road, Bang Muang Sub District, Muang District, Samut Prakan Province. WDT Rescue Team went to the location and found a two story commercial building where all windows and doors were securely locked up.
WDT Rescue Team looked through the windows and found many cats in bad condition waiting and sitting at the door. WDT contacted the house owner to unlock the door but it was inconvenient for her to come. The locksmith was called to unlock the door with a permission from the owner.
The mother who raised the cats passed away in December 2021, the daughter works in a different town and did not know what to do with, at that time, over twenty cats.
WDT had a permission from the daughter of the deceased mother, to rescue 17 cats. The cats were in a process to be moved to Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, a sanctuary that provides a natural environment for elephants, dogs, cats, buffaloes and many other animals
Firstly WDT took all the cats to a temporary shelter and have them treated at the veterinary and later they will be transferred to Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai.
The daughter agreed for the Elephant Nature Park to take care all 17 orange cats.
